"Learn to coach, coordinate, communicate and illustrate professional projects!"

In this program we develop professionals who will facilitate other people in finding their balance in life and work. In a world where many people are facing more and more challenges to maintain their work-life balance and  stress, there is a need for innovative young professionals who can face this trend. In this open English-taught semester students will find a common key interest: to find innovative ways of engaging people in coaching lifestyle behavior, counseling and the grassroots of human development.

Students from different nationalities and backgrounds learn to coach, coordinate, communicate and illustrate professional projects and apply this knowledge and these skills in an integrated project, in which they will take the role of the human facilitator in a multidisciplinary team. During the autumn semester, emphasis will be on theoretical lectures as well as on experiential learning and individual or group projects. Students will work on different projects, mostly in mixed teams. The aim is to integrate students from abroad with Belgian students and stimulate teamwork and international communication and co-operation. During the semester some company visits are arranged, so that students will learn about Belgian corporate culture.
