Corporate partners reward Masters graduates

During the Masters graduation event on 1 July, our corporate partners were delighted to present awards to students who excelled in a field that is close to our partners’ hearts. A gesture that symbolises the strong interaction between our students and the corporate world.  

The partnership between KPMG and Vlerick goes back a long way. The focus of the Chair Partnership may have shifted recently towards energy and digital transformation, but giving this Best Masters in Financial Management Project award was a great way of looking back on the financial research both partners have undertaken in the past few years.

Given the strong focus on entrepreneurship 2.0 research, it was no surprise that our Prime Foundation Partner Deloitte presented the prize for Best Entrepreneurial Spirit.

Deloitte was also happy to present the award for Best Masters in General Management Project (Leuven campus).

Our Talent Partner Delhaize has been one of the top recruiters of Masters students this past year. Filip Van Den Put handed out awards to the best Masters students in Marketing Management and Financial Management.
