There are a large number of English-language master's degrees available in universities across Europe. If you are planning to apply for a master's program which is taught in English, then you will need to provide proof of your English language abilities. One test used to measure language skills is the TOEFL, which you need to take before applying for a master's.
To illustrate the kind of TOEFL scores that are required to apply for master's programs in economics, finance, and business, we have compiled information on required scores for some of Europe's best universities.
Master’s in Economics, Radboud University
“A TOEFL score of ≥90, with subscores not lower than 18”
Requires equivalent to B2 level, which translates to TOEFL iBT scores as:
“Lund University’s programmes require English 6/English course B. This is the equivalent of a TOEFL score of 90.”
MSc in Finance, London School of Economics
Requires TOEFL iBT scores of:
Master of Finance, University of Cambridge
“TOEFL - 110, with no element below 25”

“TOEFL iBT total score at least 100”
MBA, University of Oxford
MBA, Imperial College Business School
“TOEFL iBT: A minimum score of 100 overall with minimum scores of 22 in all elements.”
As you can see, required TOEFL scores for programs in non-native English speaking countries are in the 70 – 100 region. Universities in English-speaking countries have stricter requirements of scores of 100 upwards.
