Stagiaires Brussels Young Exporters Program

The "Brussels Export Manager Program" (previously "Brussels Young Exporters Programme") exists since 2005 and meets genuine demand from SMEs which require specialists to develop their exports to new markets.

Participation requirements

  • Master's or Bachelor's degree
  • Looking for work
  • Resident in Brussels
  • Good language skills
  • And, above all, a passion for international trade!

3-stage course

1. Theory: 4 training modules (8 weeks) taught by trainers with international experience. The programme is also intended to be highly practical.
2. Work placement: 6 weeks' immersion in a Brussels SME in order to find out about its products and its foreign market approach, and prepare to canvass on the ground. A vital step before the next stage.

3. Market research abroad: a real challenge awaits the intern, namely 2 months abroad to carry out market research and test the prospective clients selected during the work placement. The venture is facilitated by Brussels Invest & Export's economic and commercial attaché, who will welcome the intern to their offices and provide assistance throughout the stay.
The course ends with presenting a report and championing it in front of a panel of experts. The successful completion certificate is a real door-opener in the world of international trade.

Practical information

The programme is available in 2 languages: French and Dutch.
