The 'Advanced Management Programme'
comprises 6 core modules of 3 days each. After the five core modules you will apply the newly found insights to a strategic business challenge for your organisation – this anchors all aspects that have been covered during the programme. During the final module we will integrate the insights of the strategic and leadership trajectory and provide a sounding board session on the strategic business projects.
The Advanced Management Programme has 2 important learning objectives: 1. Developing your strategic understanding and 2. Enhancing your leadership role within the company.
The Strategic track
makes you familiar with the key models and concepts in strategic thinking. We provide you with a clear overview of useful frameworks on various levels. The challenge for the participants is to translate their strategic insights to their company’s focal points and to formulate and implement their own winning corporate or business strategy. You will consolidate the learning points through a strategic business challenge
. A thorough analysis of your company’s strategy, an action plan for improvement and the implementation of some of the frameworks are part of this strategic project.
The Leadership track
sharpens your leadership role by providing you with toolboxes and the self-insight necessary to leverage all your potential. The golden thread running through the different leadership modules is a 360° feedback process
that supports you in reflecting on your leadership development needs. Peer coaching will give you an external sounding board complementing your internal insights. You will be challenged to develop a personal development plan to integrate your leadership insights and to put these into practice.
The Integration track
, and final module, gives you the opportunity to wrap up all insights of the strategic and leadership track. We will spend one day each integrating all covered frameworks via different learning techniques and formats. During this module you will also present the findings of your strategic business challenge to a group of peers and faculty and you will receive valuable insights to bring your company to a next level.

Vlerick connects theory to practice, and back again. Theoretical concepts and insights turn tangible through practical examples, cases, simulations, peer discussions and exercises. In addition to the faculty’s sharing of knowledge and experience, interaction and exchange amongst participants is a key element in the learning process.
The distinguishing factor for this programme is the reflection on your leadership role through a 360° feedback process and the strategic business challenge. This strategic challenge is worked on during the course of the programme and addresses a specific strategic challenge your company is facing.
The Advanced Management Programme intends to facilitate networking amongst participants both during and after the programme. The residential format includes evening activities of a professional and social nature that foster exchange and bonding.
