KU Leuven Campus Brussels

KU Leuven offers academic programmes on its Brussels campus at HUBrussels (HUB). HUB was the result of a merger between three Brussels-based university colleges and one university. As such, the location has become a multifaceted institute of higher education. Due to its hybrid nature of housing both academic and professional programmes, HUB is unique in the Flemish education landscape.

Master's Programmes



In 1996, HUB (then EHSAL) was the first Belgian business school to obtain the ISO 9001 certificate for its consistently high level of academic quality and excellent service to students. HUBs internationally-oriented education is highly recognized in international audits. From the European Commission, HUB obtained the European University Charter.


With over 50 years of accumulated experience, HUB belongs to the leading educational institutes in Europe. HUB represents quality, professionally oriented education and academic training in Brussels, the political and economic heart of the European Union. HUB introduced major educational innovations in Flanders. By introducing the bachelor-Master structure in its curriculum, HUB joined the new European Higher Education Environment. Simultaneously, HUB enhanced its academic standards by joining the university association with Flanders oldest university (KU Leuven).
