Be empowered by the Vlerick online learning journey

With the right business school behind it, online learning is a powerful tool. If you’re a high-achieving professional looking for the catalyst that could take your career to the very top, an Online MBA from Vlerick Business School could be an ideal fit.

But what exactly makes the online experience from our triple-accredited business school so effective? Here we explain how our approach to online learning makes our Online MBA the key to setting your career apart.

A history of inspiring business minds

The best people to describe what it’s like to study online with us must be those that have experienced it for themselves.

Our participants come from all over the world and all walks of life but they all share an ambition to achieve great things in their careers. Our participants each bring their own unique business acumen to our Online programmes and take away something different.

Including business consultants, heads of retail and digital leads, our participants have described the Vlerick online learning experience in a variety of ways, from “disruptive, flexible and fun” to “inspiring, educational and valuable”. There’s a great mix of perspectives but they all have something in common – they reflect just how engaging the course is and how it inspires intense involvement and reaction in those who take part. Many participants tell us they look forward to learning and relish the time and freedom it gives them to concentrate on their own self-development.



Marion Debruyne, our Dean, adds her own perspective, calling our experience “active, engaging and academically sound but very close to practice.” As she says, we tread the fine line between teaching the latest business theory and showing participants how to apply it in a real-world setting; turning knowledge into action for tangible learning outcomes.

Re-designing our MBA for maximum online impact

With results like this in mind, we have developed our Online MBA to embody the same values of positive, experiential learning as its on-ground equivalent. The Vlerick MBA ‘DNA’ runs through our online learning journey, infusing it with vibrant, passionate teaching and a hands-on application of knowledge. As we explain in our video about learning with impact, we don’t aim to simply feed information to our participants as teachers; we understand that with the right approach to learning innovation, we can be partners in your educational progression.


Our seasoned faculty has a wealth of professional business experience, providing you with the support and expertise to succeed in competitive international markets. They will encourage you to reflect on your learning in the real world; to ‘step out of the room’ and think about the impact your studies will have on your career. This ever-present personal connection to what you are learning exponentially increases motivation and drive to succeed.

The Online MBA content includes challenging interactive elements that provide an immediate platform to exercise what you’ve learned, such as business simulations, real-life case studies and live projects. Tasks are designed for group learning and to facilitate the exchange of ideas and critical thinking, as well as building a network of influential business peers.

You’ll experience immersive video learning, digital study support resources and synchronous classes with faculty, speakers and other participants around the world. All this is accessible at a time and place to suit you, making it possible to expand your knowledge and confidence as a business leader while working to further your career.
