The UBI Difference
United Business Institutes (UBI) was established on 4th April 1992 as a not-for-profit establishment of higher education. UBI was co-founded by Mr. Lucien van Dievoet and Mr. Francois d’Anethan who together decided to work on starting an English-language Business School that would combine a true international dimension with a high-quality business curriculum.
The quality assurance mechanisms of British universities have always been seen as the standard for higher education and therefore the decision for a British validation was made and the UBI programmes have been validated by British Universities since 1998.
Since taking its first students in October 1992, UBI has achieved a reputation for the high quality of its teaching programmes. Situated in Brussels, UBI offers the opportunity to study in English in a non-English speaking country and allows students to benefit from an international, intercultural and dynamic environment.
This successful recipe was extended to opening new campuses. UBI – Luxembourg was opened in 2013 to operate a campus in Wiltz, Luxembourg. UBI – China was opened in 2018 in Shanghai (China).

Middlesex University London
UBI and the University of Middlesex signed a Memorandum of Co-operation on the delivery of the Programme. Middlesex University validates UBI's academic programmes and oversees their quality assurance. For more information on the quality assurance process, students should refer to the section of their programme handbook on quality assurance.
Although students enrol at and attend the United Business Institutes Bachelor in Business Studies or Master of Business Administration programme, it is validated by Middlesex University and therefore they are students of both institutions. At Middlesex University, the programme is part of the Middlesex University Business School.
Being a Middlesex student on this validated collaborative programme means that when students successfully complete the programme, they receive the Bachelor in Business Studies or/and Master of Business Administration degree qualification from Middlesex University, London (UK). Students may attend the appropriate Middlesex University graduation ceremony.
