Masters M&A Challenge
Saturday 19/11/2016

The Vlerick M&A challenge is one of the largest business competitions in Belgium, giving you the opportunity to discover the field of M&A first-hand. During one day, students coming from different backgrounds all over Europe work in teams on a real-life M&A case. They will have to analyse a recent M&A deal, guided by our renowned faculty. Finally, at the end of the day every team has to prove their value in front of a jury with leading Belgian and international M&A experts. The winning teams receive a 10% scholarship for one of our masters programmes. It's the perfect occasion to network with some of Europe’s brightest M&A people and to experience our hands-on learning culture.

After 2 successful editions in 2014 & 2015, we are proud to announce that the 3rd edition will take place on 19 November 2016 in Brussels. We are looking forward to hosting again master students from all across Europe in an equally challenging and inspiring atmosphere.
