We are organising an online open day on Wednesday 1 December 2021 to inform students about our English-language programmes. Discover Europe’s most innovative university and learn more about our international programmes, admissions, housing and much more. For more information, Google “KU Leuven Online Open Day”.
The Master of Business Economics at KU Leuven offers a thorough training in all domains of an organisation with attention to how this organisation is embedded in society. Attention is paid to the development of corporate strategies and the management of functional domains (marketing, finance, accounting, production and logistics, innovation, personnel and organisation) .
By combining the initial specialisation in the bachelor's programme with the same or different specialisation in the master's programme, students achieve a differentiated profile that includes in-depth specialised skills.
The programme equips you for entrepreneurship and start-up management, as well as strategic decision making in established leading economic organisations.
Graduates generally take up managerial and/or research positions in business, national and international institutions, and in managerial functions at universities.
Given the variety of skills acquired, you will be highly sought-after by a wide range of companies from small firms to multinational corporations. You can pursue a career as auditor, entrepreneur, consultant, financial analyst, financial manager, project manager, marketeer, sales manager or stockbroker.
