leuven

This programme takes place in Leuven, one of Belgium’s most vibrant university towns and a high-tech hotspot in Europe. Our partner University (KU Leuven) is considered the second most innovative European university, behind Imperial College London, in a 2015 ranking by press agency Reuters. KU Leuven is ranked 16th worldwide.

Programme Content

In the first part of the programme, you'll get a broad view of all management domains. Starting with a crash course on management essentials, you then move on to the core subjects. Throughout the different modules, you'll be faced with numerous action learning challenges and personal development exercises.

Throughout the year you'll work with your team on developing your own new business idea during the start-up accelerator. Experienced coaches will help and challenge you on the way.

The second part of the programme focuses entirely on Innovation and Entrepreneurship. You'll first take some specialised courses and then choose an industry-focused strategic innovation boot camp. One of the highlights of the year is no doubt the disruption tour to Silicon Valley in which you'll visit several innovative start-ups and get to meet successful entrepreneurs. In the last two months of the programme, you'll either work on an innovation consultancy project or your own start-up.

During Summer, you can apply for an optional internship in a start-up through one of our partners’ incubator or accelerator programmes.
