Centre Emile Bernheim (CEB), is ULB’s research Institute in Management Sciences, affiliated to the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management (SBS-EM).

CEB aims at developing and promoting advanced scientific research in Management Sciences.  CEB's researchers are currently active in the following fields: Finance, Marketing, Technology Management, International Economics, Strategy & Corporate Governance, Accounting & Control, Economic & Financial History, Tax Sciences, Quantitative Methods for Management, Human Resources & Organisation, Microfinance - CERMi, Environmental Economics - CEESE, and Public management.

CEB is organised into eight departments, it hosts full-time professors, part-time professors, and researchers.

CEB members publish in top international scientific journals and participate in congresses, conferences, and academic teaching around the world. CEB senior researchers have developed close relations with public and private firms, and national and international organisations (EU, World Bank, IMF, federal and regional Belgian governments, the European Patent Office, the OECD), wich frequently lead to contracts funding applied research work and expertise. CEB also runs the Doctoral School in Management Science of the SBS-EM. Some CEB PhD students benefit from scholarships. These grants (FNRS, CIM, etc.) are highly competitive, and CEB candidates have obtained excellent scores in recent rounds of attribution.
