Vlerick students meet Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi

End of March the Indian Embassy in Brussels welcomed an Indian delegation headed by the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Besides the enthusiasm of a large group of current students from all over the world, two of our Indian full-time MBA students Arshvir Singh and Vivek Dhawan succeeded in congratulating Prime Minister Modi in person, as a token of their deepest appreciation and respect for his visionary leadership on business and education. On behalf of the whole Vlerick family they were able to hand over an large greeting card with many signatures and wishes from staff and students.

Stronger Indo-Belgian ties

India has always been special to Vlerick and each year we welcome many bright Indian students undertaking an MBA or Masters programme. In honour of Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Brussels, we will launch three EU – India scholarships for our full-time MBA programme, further strengthening our relationship with the Indian community. Yolanda Habets, Manager Full-Time MBA programme: “These scholarships who are worth 13,000 euros each, will be granted to ambitious and bright Indian students that want to pursue a full-time MBA in the heart of the European Union. By doing so we want to invest in creating responsible leaders who can contribute to the sustainable development of their home country India.”
