University College Ghent’s Faculty of Business & Information Management is delighted to invite you to the international teaching week held from 24th till 28th April 2017.
We aim at offering an enriching experience to guest and home lecturers as well as students. Previous editions have also proven to be highly valuable in intensifying the cooperation between the partners represented.
Our faculty offers 4 bachelor study programmes in the following fields: Business Management (Marketing, SME, Law, Logistics, Accounting, Finance, Environmental Management), Office Management (with a strong emphasis on languages and ICT for future management assistants, translators and medical management assistants), Retail Management and Applied Computer Science (Application Development, Mobile, System Administration, Mainframe and E-Business).
Applications for this international teaching week can be done before 15 January 2017. All applicants will be informed by late February if a proposed topic was successfully matched with one of our study programmes. To maximize the international experience for all parties involved, priority will be given to those lecturers who confirm availability over the entire course of the week. We encourage all staff of our partner institutions to apply for funding within Erasmus+.
We look forward to connecting with colleagues from all over Europe!
The Faculty of Business and Information Management has 3 campuses: Campus Schoonmeersen and Campus Mercator in Gent and Campus Aalst in the city of Aalst (30 minutes by train in between Ghent and Brussels).
Most of the guest lectures will be scheduled on Campus Schoonmeersen, but some of your workshops or lectures might be planned in Aalst or on Campus Mercator.
