Vlerick Business School makes a slight progression in the 2013 Financial Times Executive MBA ranking

After a small drop last year, Vlerick Business School has improved its position in the 2013 Financial Times Executive MBA ranking with four spots. Within this top 100 of Executive MBA programmes worldwide Vlerick climbs from the 90th position to number 86. This is a good result considering that we are one of the few European-based programmes that have shown improvement in this  year’s ranking.

The slight increase in the School’s position can be explained by Vlerick’s results in terms of salary increase, career progress and aims achieved. For each of these categories the Executive MBA ranks in a top 50 position.

Koen Dewettinck, Programme Director of Vlerick’s Executive MBA (Ghent and Leuven): “Although rankings are important, we try to focus first of all on increasing the quality of the ‘experience’ we provide to our MBA students. We are happy with our good scores on salary increase, career progress and aims achieved, as they link directly to the Return of Investment of our programme to our students.”

According to her, the most important move in this context is to embrace change and engage in an open dialogue with stakeholders. That’s why she decided to participate in the 4th edition of our Future Grid Managers programme.
