Required GMAT-score

It is important to note that students are selected for CEMS MIM for their outstanding profile and based on their potential for an international career. In addition to the Louvain School of Management masters admission requirements, you should be aware of the following CEMS requirements regarding the GMAT. First, you do not need to take the GMAT if you have a weighted average of 67.00% from a Belgian bachelor's degree. Otherwise, you need a minimum GMAT total score of 600. Exceptionally, if you have a non-Belgian bachelor's degree from a CEMS School or one of their DD Partner Schools, you may be exempt from the GMAT if you have a min. B grade.

Start your preparation in time

The intake for the CEMS Master in International Management is usually from December to March. If you need to do a GMAT, we recommend you to start preparing on time. This, because reaching a GMAT score over 600 generally requires a lot of study hours and practice. Please note while planning your GMAT exam, that it can take up to 20 working days to receive your official score. If you have not received an official score above 600 by the deadline, you cannot participate in the CEMS MIM master's program.
