Masters M&A Challenge
Saturday 02/12/2017

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 with different backgrounds from 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 discount of €1,500 on the tuition fee for one of our masters programmes and an exclusive dinner together with some captains of industry and Vlerick Finance faculty. 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 4th edition will take place on 2 December 2017 in Brussels (Apply before November 19).
