Welcome to the Department of Economics, Management & Leadership.

A team of lecturers and researchers use their academic knowledge and professional experience to educate students in economics, management and leadership, tailored to the needs of Defence.

These subjects not only figure in the basic bachelor’s and master’s programme, but also in the continuing education throughout the whole of an officer’s career.

There are three chairs:

- The chair of Economics

- The chair of Management

- The chair of Leadership

In addition, a research Group “Risk, Crisis and Disaster Management” (RCDM) performs multi- and interdisciplinary studies in risks, organisational crises and disaster management.

The department puts its knowledge and experience at the disposal of Defence and society by providing services.

The department cooperates with universities in Belgium and abroad, and with authorities in the private and public sector.
