Vlerick Business School Admissions Test (VBAT)

We organise the VBAT on a monthly basis on our campuses in Belgium or via skype. The location of the VBAT has no link with the location of your Masters programme. To ensure the safety of our candidates, professors and staff, we will organise our admissions test fully online until further notice.

When you apply through the VBAT you’ll take an analytical test and a face-to-face interview. The analytical test is a computer based, multiple choice test. It assesses whether you can quickly read and interpret business data and it will take around 20 minutes. In order to prepare for your admission test, you can find some tips & tricks in our VBAT preparation document.

Please find below the dates of our upcoming VBAT dates.

Due to the high number of applications, there are a limited amount of slots per date, which will be filled on first-come-first-serve basis
