With this Executive Master Class, you'll have an impact in your organisation! Not only are our classes filled with practical examples, case studies and guest speakers. Through an in-company project, you'll be able to work on your own challenges, relevant to your business.

In order to meet the Executive Master Class certification requirements, you should successfully execute an in-company project, which allows you to translate your knowledge into business practice. Throughout this in-company project, you'll apply the knowledge and experience acquired during the programme in your own business. This project is carried out under the supervision of a faculty adviser and an internal company adviser. The scope of the project is defined in consultation with the company and the Vlerick adviser. The outcome of the project is a practical and relevant management report that will help you realise the impact of the Executive Master Class in your business.

You can start with the project as of the very first module. Of course, we're on your side and we'll help you frame the project scope and link you to a Vlerick faculty adviser. You'll need to complete the in-company project by March 2015.


When you've completed the core modules, it will be up to you to decide what you want to learn. Based on our experience we recommend three possible paths. You choose the one that best fulfils yours and your company's needs. Not sure what to choose? We'll be happy to advice you on this!
