Masters M&A Challenge

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.

The 3rd edition took place on 19 November 2016 in Brussels.
