International trade training programmes

What with canvassing and negotiating techniques, international transport, customs and fiscal regulations and even cultural specifics, foreign trade covers a wide variety of areas.

Group of trainees

Two training programmes

Brussels Invest & Export, together with its partners Bruxelles Formation, Cefora/Cevora and VDAB, offers two training programmes aimed at jobseekers in Brussels looking to specialise in international trade:
These combine theoretical training and experience on the ground through a company internship in Brussels. The Brussels Export Manager Programme also offers the opportunity of work experience abroad.

Export expertise at your company's fingertips!

Need help with your market research, canvassing missions or administrative processes relating to international trade?
Brussels Invest & Export can provide you with interns qualified in a wide range of areas:
  • The Import-Export Officers are interns whose job is mainly administrative, within the framework of the company's international processes. They fulfill a back office role.
  • The Export Managers interns are canvassing on the ground. They are commercial agents.
The programme is available in 2 languages: French and Dutch.
Having a company intern won't cost you a penny because the initiative is financed by Brussels Invest & Export and its partners. The interns are covered by liability insurance for the duration of the programme and, in the case of the Brussels Export Manager Programme, they receive a grant which covers their costs abroad.
All Brussels-based companies with international activities can have an intern.
