The University of Antwerp Management School
The University of Antwerp Management School (UAMS) integrates all postgraduate and executive management programmes of the University of Antwerp. Antwerp's tradition of management education at university level dates back to 1852. In the mid nineteenth century the two business schools of Antwerp were unique in Europe, attracting many students from home and abroad. 150 years of pioneering, innovation and experience have thus ensured that UAMS' management training is firmly anchored in the local and international business community.
UAMS aims to be a 'full-service partner' and its primary goal is to help current and future managers in the private, public and non-profit sector fulfil their training and development needs. Its priorities are optimal quality control, an interactive process of working with small groups, emphasis on research-based knowledge and 'best-practices', an international outlook and a constant adaptation of the programmes to the requirements of the business community. Aside from organizing training at home and abroad the UAMS is also involved in applied research. The outcome of research projects forms a vital source of inspiration for the courses.
UAMS has been awarded the prestigious AACSB label by the 'Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business' (AACSB). The University of Antwerp is the first Belgian university that succeeded in acquiring this quality label, enabling UAMS to firmly strengthen its market share in the field of quality education at masters' level.
