You know that the next stage of your career starts with an MBA. So here’s how to make sure you get the place you’re dreaming of.

1. Make sure Vlerick is a good fit for your personality

Vlerick Business School offers you a truly international perspective. Our world-class teaching connects you to the most cutting-edge thinking from around the globe. And our hands-on, practical approach means you’ll hit the ground running when you graduate.

And that means we look for a particular kind of professional. If you’re open to new ideas and you have a global perspective, you’ll fit right in. If you’re also practical and have a passion for bringing about positive change, you’ll thrive in our rigorous academic environment.

2. Sign up for the admission test

We hold admission tests once a month on our campuses in Ghent and Brussels. If you’d like to do it online, please get in touch and let us know.

The admission test comprises:

  • The analytical test
    …is a 20-minute, multiple choice assessment that you carry out on a computer. It lets us know about your mathematical and statistical reasoning.
  • The English Proficiency test
    …takes 25 minutes, and demonstrates your ability to interpret short business texts.
  • The interview (in English)
    …is where we find out all about your motivation, knowledge and management potential. We’ll also be keen to discuss current events and socio-economic issues with you.

3. Know what to expect – and prepare

Before the test

  • Plan ahead and take the test well in advance of the admissions date
  • Practice talking about why you want to take our MBA
  • Make sure you’re up-to-date on current affairs and issues

During the test

  • Stay calm and keep your eye on the clock
  • If you’re not sure about an answer, use a process of elimination to find the correct one

After the test

  • You’ll get the results in two to three business days
  • Even if the result is positive, call to get feedback
  • If you don’t make it the first time, don’t give up – you can re-take the test one more time.
