Solvay Missions

More than one hundred years ago, our founder Ernest Solvay, defined the school’s mission as follows:

By and large, this mission remains unchanged. But it has now been extended :


“Our mission is to have a decisive and positive impact on how economic and business challenges are addressed.

With a strong emphasis on quantitative methods, we produce pioneering research and educate women and men to become true leaders and entrepreneurs in their field.”
