Our US Chapter head testifies
Adriaan Hoogmartens (MGM 2011), based in New York
It is with great pleasure that I accept my role as chapter head of New York through which I will continue to spread the values of entrepreneurship that Vlerick embodies. While we work hard in the city, we also know how to play hard during the few free moments we have. I want you to know we are here for you in the city and I look forward to seeing you all during one of the events tailored to your interests and needs.
Our Shanghai Chapter head testifies
Bert Van Genechten (SCM 2006), Managing Director China Delaware Consulting
With Vlerick Business school growing internationally, so are the Alumni spreading their wings over the world. In Shanghai, Vlerick Alumni allows those Alumni in Shanghai to link back to the Vlerick base, hear what is happening at Vlerick and sharing experience about local business in China and international cooperation. It’s more a group of friends coming together from time to time. A nice point to keep in touch.

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
It takes some time and effort to create and implement Alumni events, but it’s all worth doing so with an enthusiastic team as we create opportunities!
Wouter Ollevier (YMP 2005)
"Where all think alike, no one thinks very much."
Vlerick Alumni consistently makes true on its promise of lifelong learning and valuable networking. I owe a lot to this group of knowledgeable folks who have proven to share generously and challenge candidly. The honor and pleasure to contribute is truly all mine.
Frederik Malesevic (M3 2009)
“You cannot stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf” (Jon Kabat-Zinn)
In complex times, thinking out of the box becomes the rule instead of the exception. The Vlerick Alumni association challenges you to keep a sharp look on the new reality we live in. The content and network events are the perfect stimulus to keep you on top of your game.
Geert Lagae (PUB 1991)
You can consider an education at the Vlerick Business School as a mere starting point, a training in business skills and the handover of a toolbox for your career. However, the approach and programme intensity of Vlerick sets things in motion : you meet your best friends for life, you pick up ideas and opportunities to shape your future. Joining the Alumni allows you to continue your development, be it through content or through networking or meeting new people.
In the end we are here to support you,
"So may a thousand actions, once afoot,
End in one purpose"
