UNeECC University Members

University of the Month

Belgium Belgium KU Leuven

KU Leuven

Every month we are introducing one of the university members of UNeECC to learn more about their mission, academic activities, research fields and projects. This time we take a closer look at KU Leuven, home to Prof. Flora Carrijn, President of the UNeECC.  She is the academic director  KU Leuven Antwerp Campus and Managing director of Flanders Business School.

KU Leuven Up Close

With its comprehensive approach to knowledge, KU Leuven offers a truly complete education. The university excels in a wide range of disciplines, organised across 15 faculties. The fact that every one of these subjects ranks in the top 100 of their field, with half of them in the top 50 worldwide, is truly a mark of honour.
