The Master [120] in Management has four elements :

  1. Common core curriculum

    This includes the dissertation and its seminar, an internship that can be tied in with the dissertation topic as well as foreign language courses.

  2. A professional focus

    This involves more in-depth study of different management topics (strategy, finance, management control, marketing and human resources).

  3. A major

    This is a two-part course that enables students to specialise in one of the fields of management (marketing, strategy and organisation, finance, auditing, etc.). Students will have access to the majors that are offered at both the Mons and the Louvain-la-Neuve campuses of Louvain School of Management.

  4. Exchange or LSM option and courses
    In the second year, students have the opportunity to either take one or more exchange courses at one of the 145 partner universities of Louvain School of Management or continue to specialise with LSM courses and a 15-credit option.

Note that, depending on your previous studies, the examination board may add some course units (= prerequisite courses) to your Master’s programme.

LSM also offers Master’s [120] students seven tracks that pursue specific educational objectives. These are accessed through a selection process, which, for some, takes place in the academic year prior to entry into the first year of the Master’s programme.


The CEMS Master in International Management – CEMS MIM

LSM is the exclusive Belgian partner of this network, which has, for some years now, brought together leading European business schools and several partners outside Europe.

Interdisciplinary Programme in Entrepreneurship - CPME

This programme brings together students from several UCLouvain faculties and equips them with the analytical and thinking tools they need to understand entrepreneurial processes, create or take over a business (private limited liability company, non-profit organisation, public limited company, etc.) or progress entrepreneurial projects within existing organisations.

The International Business (IB) programme

This programme is for students who would like to embark on an international career. By combining a preparatory major specific to this programme, exchange courses and a six-month internship in a multinational company abroad, it cultivates the open-mindedness, intercultural skills, adaptability and proactivity required for working in an international environment. The students selected for the IB programme will therefore spend the whole of their second year abroad, successively completing an international exchange and a six-month internship in a company outside Europe.

Double degree - DD & DDD

By accumulating 60 course credits at Louvain School of Management, approximately 40 course credits at the DD partner university and a joint dissertation for both universities (20 credits), students will be awarded two Master’s degrees, one from LSM and the other from the partner university:

  • Prague University of Economics and Business (Czech Republic)
  • University of Cologne (Germany)
  • Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration – NHH (Bergen, Norway)
  • Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (Lisbon, Portugal)
  • Vytautas Magnus University (Kaunas, Lithuania)
  • Aix-Marseille University (Aix-Marseille, France)
  • KU Leuven (Leuven, Belgium)
  • Instituto Superior Técnico - Technical University of Lisbon (Lisbon, Portugal)

A dedicated double degree (DDD) with a focus on Environmental Issues and Supply Chain Management is offered exclusively by LSM and NHH.

The Master in Management "Financial Management track" and the LSM-ICHEC double degree.

The Auditing stream (major + option) at the Mons campus.

The Digital Marketing programme (in connection with the IPM Digital Marketing chair)

This programme is for students who wish to specialise in digital marketing. By combining marketing options in the first year, primarily the Digital Marketing option, with a work placement option in the second year, the programme offers a combination of in-company experience and university education (two days at university/three days at work) in the second year of the Master’s. In addition to the eight-month work placement, there are monthly workshops with industry and academic experts for formative discussions on key digital marketing topics.

For a programme-type, and regardless of the focus, options/or elective courses selected, this master will carry a minimum of 120 credits divided over two annual units, corresponding to 60 credits each.
