Admissions requirements

If you’re ready to challenge yourself by taking the next step in your professional development – we want to hear from you. We’re looking for students who will thrive in a vibrant, international academic setting, get actively involved in the Vlerick community and become the business leaders of the future.

To apply for our full-time MBA programme, you need:

  • A degree from an accredited university 
  • At least three years’ full-time work experience 
  • To pass an admissions test – either the Vlerick Business School Admissions Test (VBAT), GMAT or GRE 
  • To pass the English Language Proficiency Exam
    If you’re a native English speaker – or if you studied your undergraduate degree in English language – you won’t need to take this exam

After we’ve reviewed your application you’ll be invited for the admissions interview.

What we’re looking for

To join our MBA programme, you need a strong academic profile. But more importantly, you need to be a good fit for Vlerick. So when you apply, we consider your: 

  • Academic potential: We examine your academic record and GMAT, GRE or Vlerick Business School Admissions Test results – as well as your quantitative and qualitative analytical skills.
  • Managerial potential: We’re looking for students with an international outlook, strong teamwork skills and a responsible approach to business. We want to know about your professional experience, your career so far – and your goals for the future.
  • Vlerick potential: Are you a good fit for us – and are we a good fit for you? We explore what you’ll bring to the programme – and how the Vlerick experience could benefit you.
