Pfiiiiieeeeeeeuuuuuuwwwwwww! That's a lot of money. In Belgium you pay around 600 euro for a year, yet there are still some extra costs like your books (around 500 euro a year) and of course your room in the city where you study (around 250 - 300 a month). Yet that is nothing compared with what you have to pay. Surprised

adri, how many years does it take to get an MBA in Belgium, at 600 Euros per year? And how do Belgians compare a domestic MBA vs. an American MBA?

Ok, now to get things straight... What's an MBA exactly? I searched on google and found "Master Business Administration", is that correct? So it has something to do with Economics? Well I can only think of the Solvay Business school in Brussels.

*A few minutes later*

After searching on their site for a bit, I learned that it costs around 25.000 for an MBA and you can complete it in one or two years (no difference in price however...).

Check out this:
and this: (Go to Admissions -> Financial information)

I don't really know a lot about those kind of studies but more of the general University/High School which is like I explained in my first comment. (High school in Belgium is comparable with University only shorter (3 years) and mostly easier. (You can study teacher and some other professions there whilst University has the more difficult courses as Civil Engineer, Mathematician, Psychologist, etc... mostly 5 years)

I don't really know how we compare domestic MBA's with American MBA's. :/ As I said, before your blog post I didn't even knew something like that existed...

Thanks, adri. Honestly it's probably just something American's invented to help higher ed institutions make more money.

You could always follow a MBA in Europe, to learn more about the financial working in Europe. I think businesses in America (especially American businesses who are planning to start in Europe) are very keen on someone who knows more about Finances in Europe. Smile

I could be an amazing opportunity. Wink
