Scholarship Master in Economics and Management of Network Industries

  • From November 1st 2013 to January 15th 2014.
  • Students applying without scholarship: To be open in February..


The liberalization and regulation of network industries and infrastructures across the world creates a need for industries and public institutions to hire skilled professionals capable of understanding these processes and participating actively in their management and regulation.

The EMIN Joint Master Programme offers the opportunity to acquire expertise in the management of network industries from a global perspective that covers both economic/regulatory and technological/management issues. In these industries, teaching, training and research are typically carried out solely by focused specialists, which usually results in a skewed perspective. The purpose of this Master is to continue integrating specialists from different backgrounds and nationalities, and to make them interact in an interdisciplinary program so as to address the main problems faced by network industries in the current context of economic crisis and environmental concern. Our master students will learn the relevant engineering, economics, policy and management principles that should guide the functioning of network and infrastructure industries with a special focus on the energy and electrical power sector. Throughout the master, students will apply these skills and knowledge to solve real-life problems, since this course is dedicated to training qualified professionals.

This Master Programme is awarded jointly by some of the most prestigious European universities. First line American and Asian universities and research institutes are also part of the programme consortium.

The EMIN Joint Master Programme was awarded in 2006 the Erasmus Mundus excellence label by the European Commission. This award was renewed for another 5 years in 2010. Therefore, scholarships granted by the European Commission will be available both for EMIN students and visiting professors during the forthcoming years. The Erasmus Mundus excellence label has only been granted so far to 126 Masters and 34 doctorates in all disciplines and Universities across Europe. Comillas also coordinates the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate in Sustainable Energy Technologies and Strategies (SETS Joint Doctorate).

The Erasmus Mundus programme aims to enhance quality in higher education through scholarships and academic cooperation between Europe and the rest of the world.

Added Value

The EMIN Joint Master Programme has an advantage over existing programmes in the added value stemming from its partners’ joint expertise, the relevance of the subjects addressed, the participation of supporting industries and institutions, and the target of offering a joint degree once legal obstacles and national legislation so allow. All these advantages ensure an impact on European competitiveness in this area, and the development of cutting-edge education and collaboration between the academic and the industrial worlds. This added value of the EMIN Joint Master Programme can be summarized in the following points: international component, renowned partners, interdisciplinary approach, industry connection, experience gained in the management of this programme, and research career opportunities.

Europe : Erasmus Mundus Masters Scholarship-IT4BI


Business Intelligence (BI) promises an organization of the capability of collecting and analyzing internal and external data to generate knowledge and value, providing decision support at the strategic, tactical and operational levels. Now that we live in a knowledge society, people and organizations are immersed in a constantly flowing torrent of information, and businesses succeed or fail based largely on how effectively they collect, clean, transform, integrate, store, explore, analyze and monitor this information to predict future trends and make the best decisions. To succeed in this day and age, organizations can no longer afford to treat information and communication technologies as administrative tools, but need to embrace them as a strategic asset and embed them fully in their decision-making process.


The added value of IT4BI consists of:


  • a two-year, English-language course in BI, given by world-renowned European institutions who jointly designed the courses and programme, including three choices of specialisation,


  • the first curriculum in Europe covering the broad scope of scientific and technological fields supporting today and tomorrow\’s Business Intelligence systems,


  • strong connections with research and industry, offered by 5 full partner HEIs cooperating with 12 industrial associated partners, 2 national research institutes, 2 regional public authorities, 4 HEIs around the world, and a European HEI network, all contributing to the programme and its development.

    • Academic results : This will be calculated as the weighted average of the marks in the different subjects.
    • Other studies : A second bachelor or master will score depending on the obtained credits in computer science. Extra-curricular courses taken will be scored based on lecturing hours taking.
    • Professional experience : Points will be given by year of work on IT or BI position (regarding the position held and the topic).
    • Personal project : Points will be assigned based on the following categories: organisation, sequencing, content, vocabulary and word choice, critical thinking, originality and creativity, accuracy of facts.
    • Reference letters : Points will be assigned based on the approval, comments and reputation of the referees, as testified by the reference letters and the referees’ H-factor.



A final ranked list of candidates, based on all obtained points, will thus be produced. A main list containing the top 20-25 students will be submitted to the European Commission for scholarship approval. A reserved list is also produced.

Visa conditions

To apply for a visa as a self-funded student, you will need to have a financial guarantor. The guarantor must be able to prove that he has a monthly income that is sufficiently high for him to be able to pay you 604€/month, while retaining 973€/month for himself and 150€/month for each dependent. If these conditions cannot be met, the Belgian consulate will not issue a student visa.

Note that it is very difficult, and in some cases impossible, for an accompanying spouse or partner of a non-European student, to obtain a visa.
