Université Catholique de Louvain – Belgium

MIFA programme at the Faculty of Finance and Accounting, Prague University of Economics and Business and Université catholique de Louvain (UCL–LSM), Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium give students admitted to the MIFA programme the opportunity to register for the Double Degree Programme (DD).

UCL–LSM and MIFA VŠE have decided to establish a double degree programme agreement that allows students to obtain two degrees at the graduate level, one issued by each institution. DD programme will provide the opportunity to the students to graduate from both institutions to simultaneously pursue Master’s degree from VSE and UCL–LSM. Upon successful completion of the double degree programme, the following degrees shall be awarded by the Partner institutions:


  • -Finance and Accounting (MIFA)


  • -Master in Management or
  • -Master in Business Engeneering.

Depending on the study track the student is admitted to at VSE by the time (s)he applies. The double degree programme is related to any combination of a UCL–LSM and a VSE specialization/major as long as the prerequisites are met.

Structure of Study Programme

The intended period of study for the double degree programme shall be two years (4 semesters). Students enrolled in the programme will spend their first year at their home institution and the second year at the host institution. The student is obliged to fulfill all of the obligations of the study programme at the home University. If the student does not meet these obligations, the registration for the Double Degree shall be terminated.

For the detailed structure please contact the programme coordinator.

Master Thesis

Students enrolled in the programme are required to write a Master’s Thesis. The management process of the joint Master’s Thesis should meet all the legal and academic constraints of both degrees. However, this process will be adapted as much as possible to avoid unnecessary inconveniences to the students.

The students of VSE are obliged to pass the State Exam at their home University.

Obtaining the two degrees

Students who successfully complete their studies obtain two degrees, one issued by the home institution and one issued by the host institution.

Tuition fee

The Double Degree programme is to be paid to the original University to which the student has applied. The price is 2,500 EUR per semester. The student of the DD is obliged to pay the tuition fee for the second year of his/her studies at the partner University for the whole 1 academic year, therefore 5,000 EUR, before leaving the Czech Republic for the Double Degree programme.
