Eligibility and admission requirements

1. Diploma requirements

The faculty's committee will assess whether the undergraduate degree is equivalent to the required Flemish degree.

The Flemish business engineering bachelor programme consists of six learning paths. These paths should be present in the candidate's educational background in order to be eligible for the master's programme. We have added a few courses for your reference, but this list is not exhaustive.

  • economics and business economics path: microeconomics, macroeconomics, accounting, marketing, etc
  • quantitative path: mathematics, calculus, linear algebra, etc.
  • methodological path: statistics, econometrics, research methodology, etc
  • technical and technological path: electrical and electronics engineering, materials science, mechanical and civil engineering, etc
  • path operations and information management: production technology, business information systems, etc
  • informatics path: programming, algorithms and data structures, data mining, etc.

In case these learning paths all not all present in the candidate's educational background, the committee will decide if admission to the preparatory programme for international students is possible. 

2. Language requirements

English level B2 is required upon enrolment.

3. Additional faculty requirements

The Faculty of Economics and Business Administration strongly advises international applicants to add a GMAT or GRE score to the application file. If applicants submit an application file without GMAT or GRE, theyhave significantly less chance of being admitted. 

The faculty also determined the minimum scores an applicant should obtain. Provided the applicants adopt an appropriate study attitude, this score gives a positive indication of their chances of success in the study programme. A lower score is insufficient and implies the applicants would have considerable difficulties in successfully completing the study programme, therefore, these applications will be refused.
