Economically strong region
After the months that I've spend here, I can say that I'm more tolerant, more open minded, learning a lot, being able to work in multicultural teams. This was challenging for me, because in my home university my field is communication and PR, and here business management, and I realised that I can combine them and use it in the future for a career.
Flanders has a strong, export-oriented, innovation-driven, globalized exonomy. The port of Antwerp is the second-largest in Europe. Beside big companies, Flanders has more than 600 000 small and medium enterprises, including spinoffs, startups and scaleups. Flanders is also pole of attraction for foreign companies: thanks to its central location in Europe, our strongly developed infrastructure, our innovative clusters and our efficiency: setting up a business in Flanders takes only four days. Brussels is home to more than 2 000 international businesses and organisations, including NATO and the EU institutions, giving rise to a high number of diplomats and one of the world's largest press communities. What better place is there to find an internship, build a professional network and prepare for a successful career?
