Open programmes revisited
Modular and international
“We’re currently reviewing our portfolio. The key words are modular and international,” says Professor Walter Van Dyck. “All in all, our open programmes should be geared to the different stages in a career. We’ll redesign our long specialised programmes to enable you to take the full programme or separate modules. To offer maximum flexibility, our short courses will also be in modular form. Either you take a module as a stand-alone course or you combine different modules into a full executive degree. To meet increasing demand for shorter options, we’ll offer more two- to four-day courses. We’ll continue our general management programmes, of course, but these will be more international.
“In areas in which we excel, we’ll set up collaborations with other leading business schools. The strategic innovation programme with Cambridge Judge Business School, combining modules in Leuven and Cambridge, was such a success it will be organised again next year. Our Doing Business in Europe programme will make optimum use of our presence in Brussels and could easily be combined with modules abroad, for example in Beijing. After all, China is an important and growing trade partner.”
The transformation should be complete by January 2013.
