Vlerick Executive MBA keeps on rising in annual Financial Times ranking

For the second consecutive year Vlerick’s Executive MBA programme has risen in the Financial Times Executive MBA ranking. Vlerick Business School has improved its position in the 2014 ranking with four spots. Within this top 100 of Executive MBA programmes worldwide Vlerick climbs from the 86th position to number 82. This year’s result confirms a steady evolution since 2012.

Professor Regine Slagmulder, Director Executive MBA programmes, explains the progression: “I am pleased to see that the recent curriculum changes are positively reflected in our EMBA rankings. Over the years Vlerick Business School has built a solid position in Belgium, offering three different EMBA formats in Brussels, Ghent and Leuven. Our ambition is to further strengthen our position in our Benelux home market, while at the same time leveraging the school’s international footprint. One way to achieve this is by collaborating closely with our EMBA colleagues on the Vlerick campus in Russia.

Professor Koen Dewettinck, Programme Director Executive MBA Ghent , adds: “Three years ago we started with the complete redesign of our Executive MBA. We have put more flow into the programme, we started working with fixed cohorts and provided much more support to the personal development journey of our students. We also opened up the opportunity for our MBA students to tailor their learning journey towards their personal needs by introducing elective modules. The main intent was to make the student experience even stronger. We are happy to also see this positive impact translated in the ranking. It gives us confidence that we are on the right track. We now have a solid base for further progression and improvement.
