Vlerick participant feedback

Els Scheppers

HR Projects Manager at Group Danone, Executive Master Class in Human Resource Management

The mix of theoretical approach versus practical cases; the invitation to discuss and reflect; and, in particular, the networking with, and learning from, fellow participants form the backbone of this well thought-out and practice-oriented [Executive Master Class in Human Resource Management] programme… Interaction during the sessions, group assignments, workshops and seminars create a pleasant group atmosphere and an especially enjoyable learning environment.

Alexander Janssens

Global Head Cloud Propositions at Damovo, Executive Master Class B2B Marketing & Sales

At Vlerick it’s very interactive. The [Executive Master Class B2B Marketing & Sales] course starts with an overview before going into detail. It takes you on a journey and I could apply everything I was learning immediately... The network was really impressive too. You have people from all backgrounds: pharma, food, logistics, ICT and many more. In normal life, you don’t often get a chance to work with people from outside your sector, but then when you do, it broadens your horizons.

Bert Lamote

COO at Zoutman, Advanced Management Programme

I found the Advanced Management Programme to be very enriching and inspiring − with exactly the content I was looking for at this stage of my career. I learned to take a broader critical view of strategic issues and, above all, to dare to make well-considered choices… The whole learning process presented theory in a variety of domains in a very practical way. In addition to focusing on the strategic aspects, we also sharpened our personal skills. After each session, I returned with new ideas for moving my project forward.

Stéphanie Luyten

APMEA E-commerce Manager at Puratos, Full-time MBA

The Vlerick Full-time MBA programme brings together a very diverse set of participants, which is the right way to study international business. Business is never black and white. It needs open discussion with multiple perspectives.

Daniel Theodoge

Business Analyst at BNP Paribas Full-time MBA

With a wide variety of courses, you will be refined and moulded to be a leader of tomorrow. The Vlerick Full-time MBA is an investment that you will have for the rest of your career and life.

Dries Hermans

VP Planning and Budgeting at Nikon Metrology, Executive Master Class in Controllership

A management programme at Vlerick offers a unique opportunity to share information and insights with professors and other participants. The interaction during the team exercises and cases proves very inspiring and leads to tackling daily issues from a different angle. The thought-provoking and practice-oriented topics makes for an enriching and relevant experience that will no doubt benefit you for the rest of your career.

Raf Ramaekers

Country Manager at BNP Paribas Fortis, Advanced Management Programme

I found all the ingredients that I expect to find in senior management education [from the Advanced Management Programme]. It was a good mix of placing self-acquired strategic insights into new (or existing) conceptual frameworks, analysing (less) successful business cases, and conducting enriching discussions with fellow executives from other industries and cultures.

Saskia Vandenberghe

Operations Manager at Turbo’s Hoet Russia, International Management Programme

During the different [International Management Programme] modules, I got to know some interesting tools and frameworks applicable to different management domains. Apart from strengthening my theoretical knowledge, it also challenged me to see things differently and think out of the box. It was very interesting to listen to the experiences of faculty that have worked with a lot of different large companies. Also the network opportunities with fellow participants were a valuable input and helped me to see things from another perspective.

Kris Smits

International Tax & Transfer Pricing Director at PricewaterhouseCoopers, Executive Master Class in Corporate Finance

The marriage of top academic speakers with people standing in the middle of fires on a day-to-day basis provided the insights I was looking for to enhance my consulting profile … Preparing for the [Executive Master Class in Corporate Finance] courses requires an investment from each participant. However, the return you get back in terms of knowledge, network building and sheer fun is part of the unique Vlerick experience.

Sam Perneel

Investment Manager at AG Real Estate, Executive Development

The tools that Vlerick provides in the areas of strategy, change management, marketing, communication, finance, HR, negotiation skills [on the Executive Development programme] generate new insights that you can put to use immediately – and, energised by the inspiring instructors, you want to put them to use as soon as possible. The sharing of experience among 20 fellow participants from almost as many different sectors adds extra value to the programme. No general theories, but messages and tools that stay with you.
