Executive MBA

"Choosing the Executive MBA was the optimal decision for me - not only because of the programme's flexibility (it is conducted outside of working hours), but also because of the level of professionalism and work experience of the participants themselves. Rich interactive discussions were the norm thoughout our MBA programme, and they were enhanced even more by the group's multiculturalism - no less than 10 nationalities. Added to that, our international trip to India was an unforgettable experience, both professionally and from a personal life perspective. Overall, the executive MBA has contributed tremendously to my business knowledge and has taught me how to swim in the turbulent oceans of the business world."

Executive MBA


Executive MBA 2010

"In my opinion, the Vlerick Executive MBA delivers exactly what it promises: highly practical information delivered by great professors with hands-on industry experience, lively class discussions and challenging group work that enables us to share our knowledge and experience. The programme’s schedule - with weekend sessions and 4 full residential weeks - is another important advantage, as it minimises disruptions to work and personal pursuits".
