  • If you’re a business star of the future...

  • If you want to excel in a complex business case...
... then the Vlerick 2016 M&A challenge is for you

You could be from anywhere in the world, from any university and be from any background. As the topic of M&A presents the ideal setting for cross-functional collaboration, we strongly encourage all top-class students to apply, particularly those with a law, engineering or scientific background. The case will deal with numerous aspects related to M&A, i.e. it won't be restricted to finance and strategic issues, but also explore broader elements. You may even have a little experience in the workplace.

Individual applications only

We won’t be accepting applications from teams of students, so please only apply for yourself. Make sure that your CV includes your grades, dissertation subject, internships and extra-curricular activities.
You must apply by November 6, 2016. We won’t consider applications after this date.
Please don’t be discouraged if you don’t get through. It doesn’t mean we don’t think you have what it takes. Remember, we’re looking to create balanced teams, and we may just have too many people applying from your particular background.
