"Each module of the Executive Master Class in Corporate Finance exceeded my expectations. The balance provided between theory and practice, and between corporate finance and strategic business considerations, is excellent. Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work for top companies in the pharmaceutical and life sciences sectors, and I’ve studied at a variety of schools. I know what the standards are and what good companies expect. This programme and faculty are world-class."

"This Executive Master Class has allowed me to focus on uncommon issues and to look at very interesting subjects from a perspective that’s different from my usual one – even with my broad CFO experience. I especially appreciated the frequent interactions with peers, trying to come up with extraordinary solutions to challenging problems. The case studies have also proven to be extremely useful in my professional setting. Top programme!"

"The Executive Master Class in Corporate Finance at Vlerick has proven to be of great value in the process of starting up my own company. The insights gathered throughout the various courses, the outstanding level of practical knowledge sharing and the continuous support from Vlerick staff, have enabled me to develop a sound and comprehensive financial plan that made negotiations with financing partners more transparent and efficient."

"Although it requires a lot of effort from each participant, I enjoyed the EMCCF programme a lot. The combination of academic professors and proven business people is excellent. In addition to that, there is a lot of knowledge and practice shared between the participants, which is very useful."

International Tax & Transfer Pricing Director

"As a tax consultant advising multinational companies on transfer pricing and international tax issues, I started this journey to learn more about valuations and the optimal capital structures of groups. The Executive Master Class went beyond my initial expectations. The marriage of top academic speakers with people standing in the middle of fires on a day-to-day basis provided the insights I was looking for to enhance my consulting profile. Attending the class sessions and preparing for the courses requires an investment from each participant. However, the return you get back in terms of knowledge, network building and sheer fun is part of the unique Vlerick experience."

  1. Strong growth in Belgian mergers and acquisitions market

    2015 and the beginning of 2016 were characterised by a pronounced increase in the number of transactions in the Belgian mergers and acquisitions market. Demand is greater than supply, stimulated by easy and cheap access to finance and greater availability of financial resources to investment companies. Furthermore, the persistently low interest rate environment means there is increased interest from family investors, wealthy individuals and foreign private equity funds in Belgian medium-size enterprises. It is therefore not surprising that the prices paid are increasing across all sectors and business sizes. These are the findings from a survey of 142 Belgian mergers and acquisitions experts into their experiences over the past year.
  2. Family companies more open to private equity

    ‘Keep it in the family.’ The time-honoured motto of family companies has applied less and less in recent years, and that includes their funding. All around us we see increasing transparency and openness to the outside world, and family companies today are not immune to this. Recent research in cooperation with our Chair Partner Gimv provides a nuanced picture of family companies and their attitude to private equity.
