Vlerick’s Masters in General Management has improved its position in this year’s Financial Times ranking by 9 spots. Within this worldwide top 90 of Masters in Management programmes Vlerick Business School climbs to number 31. On a European level the programme ranks 28. Currently, we have 126 students representing 15 different nationalities.

The increase in our position is the result of excellent progress in terms of career development after graduation. Professor Wouter De Maeseneire (Director Masters Programmes at Vlerick Business School): “The ranking result confirms that investing one year at Vlerick ensures a successful start of our students’ professional careers. We are the clear number one in the Benelux when it comes to the effectiveness of our career services in supporting student recruitment. Apart from that we also jump 8 places for career status which is measured according to the seniority in position and the company size. Furthermore, as good as all of our students have secured well-paid jobs within three months of completing their education. In all this is a great achievement and a true reflection of the added value our programme is offering.”

The successful careers of our graduates are equally reflected in their salaries where we are in the top 30. Apart from the careers aspect the programme has gained 15 places with regard to international course experience. Finally, we do well in view of aims achieved and with regard to value for money which is a key criterion for students comparing various programmes.
