RIBA Approach of UC Arteveldehogeschool Ghent

Organisation and focus of the RIBA module

The RIBA (Raising International Business Awareness) module organised by UC Arteveldehogeschool Ghent (Department of Business and Office Management) in the first semester of the academic year, is characterized by the following aspects:

o The module consists of 4 courses and a project/case work/paper
o In total, 30 ECTS are offered
o The module is offered in the first semester of the academic year (for the exact dates, please check the folder School – Academic Calendar).
o The module is open to domestic and foreign students, as to allow both parties to be involved in internationalisation and to meet different cultures

RIBA approach of UC Arteveldehogeschool Ghent (Department of Business and Office Management):

o The RIBA module at Arteveldehogeschool has a strong emphasis on the functioning of the European Union. As Brussels is the heart of the EU, most of the RIBA courses have a clear link with the European institutions or business procedures of the European member states. Belgian business procedures will be compared to those of other European member states, and (if possible) sometimes also to those used in the USA and Asia.
o Moreover, the functioning of the EU will be compared to other world players like NAFTA, WTO, ASEAN. Focus will equally be put on restrictions and law makers.
o However, the courses equally focus on country and culture specific aspects as to allow foreign students to fit in with the guest country as soon as possible.
o The aim is to prepare the student to live and work in a European and multicultural environment, free from the prejudices sometimes preventing a fruitful co-operation.
