To be eligible for direct admission to the Master of Business Administration programme, you must have obtained a degree that is equivalent to our BSc in Business Administration. Information on direct admission and programme admission after either a bridging or preparatory programme can be found on the webpages listed below.
You also have to provide evidence of your English proficiency as good knowledge of the English language is essential. Unless you are a native speaker, you will be asked to submit a TOEFL or IELTS certificate. If you have already completed an English-language academic programme at an Anglo-Saxon university, your degree will be considered sufficient proof of your English proficiency.
GMAT/GRE-test results are to be included in the application. Students with a required Flemish bachelor degree, students with a degree from a partner university of the KU Leuven Faculty of Economics and Business and students with a degree from a university ranked in the global top 200 in the most recent edition of THE or QS World Ranking are exempted from the GMATGRE requirement.
