Vlerick is an independent business school, deriving more than 95% of its funding from the marketplace. Yet we also are an academic business school. It is important to be able to devote significant resources to allow our faculty to stay leading edge in their field and to be thought leaders. We also need to develop the faculty of the future by training doctoral students.
Theory and practice: they are often perceived of as two worlds apart. For us however both reinforce each other. Our faculty excels in building bridges between fundamental and applied research and the business world by doing relevant academic research and by translating those research results into practical advices, tools and insights to use in every-day business life. We strongly believe that research pays off.
By giving to our academic research fund you will contribute to keeping Vlerick leading edge, and ensuring the academic quality of our teaching and programmes
