Diploma requirements

After admission procedure

Students who do not qualify for direct admission should submit an application for screening. Eligibility is determined by the board of admissions based on the student’s Bachelor’s degree, their academic background, the obtained study results and their language proficiency. For international students, a GMAT or GRE may be required.

Students with a degree from Belgium, the Netherlands or Luxembourg, can continuously submit their application via this online form. Other students should apply during the application window via Mobility Online. You will need to provide the following information:

  1.  Academic degree: As a minimum eligibility requirement, applicants must hold an academic bachelor degree which correspond to at least 180 ECTS. Applicants in their final bachelor year are also encouraged to apply. In such a case, the offer of admission is conditional upon completion of the undergraduate degree before the final enrollment in the Master.
  2. Academic background: The admission board will evaluate whether applicants will have, at the start of the programme, a good working knowledge and understanding of Research methodology, Mathematics, Macro- and Micro-economics, Business economics and Information Science. In some cases, a preparatory programme may be required to fill limited expertise gaps. The necessity and content of the preparatory programme will be determined case per case by the board of admissions, depending on the obtained credits in the prior degree(s). A preparatory programme of up to 12 ECTS can be combined with the full Master's programme, enabling students to graduate in 2 years.
