All members of the research group PEC are, next to their research activities, intensively involved in the bachelor and master educational programs of the Faculty of Business Economics at Hasselt University. Four different educational programs at high academic level are offered: Business Administration, Business Economics, Business Engineering, and Business and Information Systems Engineering. Several of the courses in the four programs are coordinated by our research group's faculty members, with the assistance of PhD students, post-doc researchers and research associates.
The mobility problem, the ageing labour market, environmental pollution... These are topics that not only the government, but also companies are confronted with. In order to survive and be successful in this complex social context, governments and companies need 'policy managers'. They function as problem solvers who are able to implement sustainable policies and tackle social problems in a rational and efficient manner. More and more governments and companies try to integrate economy, ecology and social cohesion in their organisation.
