About the programme 2019-2020

Master of Science (MSc) in Business Engineering

The Master of Business Engineering (MBEng) is a two year master's programme taught in English consisting of 120 ECTS spread over two years.

The Master of Business Engineering at the Brussels Campus has temporarily suspended applications. The programme will be redesigned with a specific focus that fits the international orientation of the campus. In the meantime, there will be no intake of new students for the academic year 2019 - 2020. Students interested in the Master of Business Engineering can enroll in the equivalent master’s programmes at the Leuven Campus. The bachelor’s programme handelsingenieur at the Brussels Campus is not affected by this decision, and remains open for enrollment.
