The CEB's researchers are currently active in the following fields: Finance, Accounting & Tax Sciences; International Trade & Development; Strategy, Corporate Governance, Marketing & Innovation; Economic & Financial History; Human Resources, Organisation & Labor Economics; Microfinance (CERMi); Public Management; Centre d'Etudes Economiques et Sociales de l'Environnement (CEESE).

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.
