Applicants with a non-Belgian university degree: Applicants should hold a university Master's degree in Economics or Business Economics comparable to a Master's degree in Economics, Business Economics or Business Engineering from the Faculty of Economics and Business at KU Leuven, Campus Leuven. By a degree in Business or Economics we mean a broad-based academic education, not a technical training in e.g. marketing or hotel management.

Academic performance should be above average (e.g. applicants should have obtained distinction). If admitted, these applicants still have to participate in a preparatory programme.
