2.    CONTENTS OF THE COURSE CATALOGUE

This catalogue includes all English-taught courses in HUB‟s academic
programmes (Faculties of Economics & Management, Linguistics &
Literature and Law) that are open to exchange students from HUB‟s
Academic Education Division.

If you happen to be a student from one of the partners of HUB‟s
Professional Education Division (enrolled in a profession oriented
bachelor programme), specific restrictions apply. In that case, please,
get in touch with departmental exchange coordinator Bart Hempen
(bart.hempen@hubrussel.be).

Students are expected to be fluent in the language of instruction (in
most cases English) and may be denied access to courses if their
language skills prove sub-standard. Please, make sure your language
proficiency is accurately described in your applicaton file (see below).

How to compose your study programme

 3.    HOW TO COMPOSE YOUR STUDY PROGRAMME

 As a guest of one of HUB‟s academic faculties (academic bachelor or
 master programmes), you may select any combination of courses
 included in this catalogue, amounting to a maximum of 36 credits if
 you are staying for a semester (5-6 months) or 66 credits if you are
 staying for an entire academic year (10 months) – with the following
 restrictions:

     If you are a master student, you should select courses from
      master programmes. However, you are allowed to choose up to
      4 credits per semester from an advanced master programme
      and up to 10 credits per semester at bachelor level.
     If you are a bachelor student, you should select courses from
      bachelor programmes. However, you are allowed to choose up
      to 10 credits per semester at master level.

                              How to compose your study programme

When preparing your study-abroad programme, please bear in mind
that the final course scheduling will only be done at the beginning of
the academic year, when the full course descriptions (called ECTS
sheets) will be available on the intranet for students. As a
consequence, you may find that courses you initially selected overlap
(hubrussel.net). To be on the safe side, have your home institution
agree on a couple of extra „just-in-case‟ courses and keep them in
mind „for future reference‟.

Please, notice also that courses are programmed on various
campuses across Brussels. As soon as all classes have been scheduled
and you are able to confirm your course selection (final changes
before October 2009), you will need to take into account traveling
time between campuses.

If you are fluent in Dutch, you may want to include Dutch-taught
courses in your learning agreement. In that case, please contact your
departmental exchange coordinator:

       Dirk Van Waelderen: Economics & Management
        (dirk.vanwaelderen@hubrussel.be)
       Jan Dierick: Law; Linguistics and Literature
        (jan.dierick@hubrussel.be)

                more information.
Course          The central objective of this course is to provide
description     the students with a problem-solving framework
                for the analysis and remediation of externality
                problems. Environmental Economy is the
                theoretical and empirical scientific study of
                economic aspects of environmental problems
                in the broadest sense. Occupying a central
                position here is the concept of externalities,
                which is the fact that actions of economic
                agents (consuming and producing) often create
                unwanted side effects for which no
                compensation is paid. These externalities lead to
                inefficiencies in the sense that, from a societal
                point of view, too many poluting goods are
                produced or natural resources are being
                overexploited. Environmental Economy
                investigates the causes for these market failures
                and proposes solutions in the form of
                environmental policy instruments that can
                be applied by the government to get rid of
                these inefficiencies. These instruments
                include property rights, liability regulation,
                emission and technology norms, environmental
                taxes, tradeable emission rights etc.In the course
                Environmental Economy, much attention will also
                be paid to the economic valuation of
                environmental goods for which no typical
                markets are existent. These valuation
                techniques contain both direct methods
                (questionnaires in which the willingness to pay for
                environmental goods will be assessed) as well as
                indirect methods (valuations deduced from
                observation activities at related markets).Finally,
                attention will be paid to sutainable exploitation
                of natural resources (if the time permits it).

                    and Social Sciences.
 Prerequisites      Preliminary studies in national company,
                    accounting and tax law, public international
                    law and European studies are welcome.
 Course             During the classes, the legal consequences of
 description        structuring business organizations and, in
                    particular, the EC implications of the operation
                    of corporations are set forth. The course focuses
                    on the harmonized company law of the EU as
                    the product of the Community efforts made
                    with a view to promoting the freedom of
                    companies in the provision of services. The
                    Community law material is preceded by the
                    broad discussion of the basic legal forms of
                    venture and corporate policies. The course also
                    addresses the nature of a company and the
                    typology of companies in a European context.
                    Then the principle of the equal treatment
                    before the law and the harmonized publicity
                    requirements are dealt with. The Community
                    law features of branches and single-member
                    companies will also be highlighted. A special
                    emphasis is placed on the harmonization
                    requirements in respect of the formation of the
                    public limited liability companies and the

                   maintenance and alteration of their capital.
                   The explanation is based not only on the
                   statutory laws but also on the case law
                   developed by the European Court of Justice
                   while implementing the company law
                   directives. A particular accent moves to the
                   EEIG and the UCITS as „sui generis” Community
                   forms of venture. In view of the future
                   developments, the anticipated forms of the
                   harmonized European company structure,
                   including the statute for a European company,
                   recently adopted, will also be explained. The
                   company law discussion is complemented by
                   the most important aspects of the
                   harmonization achieved in areas of financial
                   law, commercial accounting and taxation.

 Course             Technological innovation and the elimination of
 description        trade barriers led to the globalisation of the
                    economy. Firms are globalizing and this creates
                    possibilities for higher efficiency on the one
                    hand, but also complicates global
                    management and organization on the other
                    hand. The aim of the course 'Comparative
                    International Management' is, first, to
                    understand the differences in management
                    and organization between countries. We discuss
                    management styles, decision processes,
                    delegation, spans of control, specialization,
                    organizational structure, organizational culture,
                    typical career patterns, corporate governance,
                    production systems, corporate strategy and
                    labour relations. Once cross-national differences
                    have been identified, two additional questions
                    are asked: how can they be explained, and are
                    they likely to disappear or will they persist?
                    Through comprehensive cases, students learn to
                    apply management concepts and techniques
                    in a multinational environment and
                    adapt them to different economic, political and
                    cultural environments.

                     is set on the city as discourse, as a figure of the
                     mind, a locus of thought. Its mental mapping is
                     further explored, both in terms of „chronos‟ as
                     well as „topos‟. How do fictional imagination
                     and factual memory interrelate? How does the
                     city function as a site for the intersection of
                     historical and cultural identities within a
                     European context?

                      chapters 10 and 13 from B. Aarts, English Syntax

Course               English Linguistics IA is an introduction to the
description          grammar of English. It begins with basic notions
                     of morphology and the syntactic structure of
                     simple phrases (noun phrase, verb phrase, etc.).
                     This is followed by a thorough analysis of the
                     syntax of the English simple sentence, with a
                     focus on aspects of the verb phrase (tense and
                     aspect). Finally, there is a self-study section on
                     orthography and verbatim transcription.

 Course               The main aim of this seminar is to offer some
 description          theoretical insights in the framework of
                      structural-functional semantics. This framework is

                                   118
          Courses managed by the Faculty of Linguistics and Literature

                     illustrated by means of exercises within the
                     framework of dependency theory and
                     semantic valency theory. Within the mentioned
                     framework, students will be familiarized with the
                     basic principles of Goldbergs "construction
                     grammar".
                     Particular attention further goes to
                     paradigmatic language structures, so-called
                     lexical fields.
                     Students are expected to present a small case
                     study on a verbal lexical item, to be analysed
                     within the framework of valency theory.
                     Depending on the personal interest of the
                     student (e.g translation studies), this case study
                     may take the form of a contrastive analysis.

                      pivotal moments and texts: the roots of modern
                      literature in the late 18th and early 19th
                      centuries, the explosion of modernism between
                      1900 and 1920, experimental tendencies in
                      prose and theater during the 1920s.
                      The second part consists in the discussion of six
                      more recent prose texts the students have to

 Course              This course aims at improving both practical
 description         language skills (oral and writing proficiency)
                     and theoretical knowledge of language use
                     (pragmatics). It focuses on the language of
                     politics, as used in official sources and in the
                     media. Examples from both fields are analyzed
                     and used as input for presentations and a 10
                     page paper, which serves as basis for the

 Prerequisites      The students have a good overall command of
                    the German language and have at least
                    reached level B2 of the Common European
                    Framework of Reference.
 Course             The course consists of three major parts: regular
 description        seminars, guest seminars and a home study
                    package. The topics dealt with during the
                    regular seminars are: giving presentations (on
                    trade fairs in Germany); organizing and
                    conducting meetings (including taking minutes),
                    public relations (including preparing press
                    releases), direct advertising, sales promotion and
                    product communication. For each of these
                    topics, a theoretical background will be
                    provided first, after which the students will be
                    working on practice-oriented assignments (see
                    „continuous assessment‟). Special attention will

                    also go to the acquisition of professional jargon,
                    thus lexically complementing the seminar topics.
                    The guest seminars, secondly, will make the
                    students more familiar with real-life professional
                    situations. Here too, the students will have to
                    work on assignments, be it in small groups
                    (continuous assessment). The home study
                    package, finally, concerns the compulsory
                    reading of Dieter Herbst‟s „Handbuch
                    Unternehmenskommunikation‟ and the
                    acquisition of selected specialised professional
                    vocabulary.
                    Assessment: oral exam (= home study package:
                    50%) + continuous assessment (= all seminar
                    assignments: 50%)

                     modern and contemporary writers.
                     By means of short fragments of texts we try to
                     establish characteristics of literary movements

                      and functions. Therefore we mainly use the
                      following concepts, based on relevant notions
                      of literary theory: literature as fiction, narrativity,
                      art, language and system.
                      According to the importance of translation, we
                      refer as well to other European and American

Course                 The course‟s objectives consist in improving the
description            written and oral foreign language proficiencies
                       of the student. During the lessons the students
                       read articles chosen by the teacher. A lot of
                       attention is paid to the correct pronunciation
                       and intonation. The articles are about Italian
                       language and culture and are the basis of the
                       discussion with the whole class. In preparation,
                       the students form small working groups and
                       discuss the articles among themselves. The
                       course on the written competences of the
                       student is based on the writing of summaries of
                       the article the student read before. The
                       summaries will be corrected in class and the
                       most frequent mistakes will be discussed. During
                       the course the student has to prepare a
                       literature paper. Those papers will be discussed
                       in the Italian literature course but the grammar
                       and lexicon correction will be made in this
                       course.

 description          students‟ written language skills. The writing
                      course underlines the cyclic nature of the

                      close reading opinion pieces, newspaper
                      articles and essays. Students have to read and
                      analyze short stories. Students have to perform
                      some research assignments on one novel set by
                      the course instructor. They also have to discuss

 Prerequisites        The course is meant for students with the
                      competences of German Translation III.
 Course               The course consists of two parts.
 description          During the first lessons we will work out a model
                      for the analysis and translation of essays or
                      literary texts. The underlying assumption is that
                      such texts make use of certain rhetorical and
                      so-called “literary” techniques. So rhetoric and
                      stilistics play an important role in the analysis of
                      source texts, but also biographical information
                      about the author can be of importance. For
                      older texts knowledge of the historical
                      background may also be required.
                      In the second part of the course students have
                      to present a text with translation.
