Why this programme?

What is the added value of following the 'Executive Development Programme'?

Even an experienced manager needs weapons, tools, concepts and a network. The Executive Development Programme gives middle and international managers the choice to transcend the perspective offered by their function.
As a result, you will be able to deliver more value.

You gain a deep understanding of the various management disciplines and achieve success for yourself and your organisation. EDP represents a unique opportunity to enhance your ability to do business and to broaden your understanding of leadership by listening and sharing with other participants. You will realise that there is no such thing as one way to success.

Simulations, group work, presentations, peer discussions and a 360° feedback review allow you to effectively translate the theory into tangible performance.

Moreover you’ll be part of an exciting Vlerick learning experience. Learning about business at Vlerick will inspire you for life. We have a unique approach to learning, which focuses on bringing theory to life, giving you the skills and insight you need to really make a difference. Spend time on our beautiful campuses, and you become part of one of the most active business communities in Europe, learning in a way that will help you to be a more effective and productive business leader throughout your career.

Our programmes put you at the centre of every learning experience. And it really is an experience far away from traditional classroom learning. You’ll work collaboratively with your faculty and fellow participants to bring your ideas to life in a robust and practical way.

    If General Motors’ headquarters had been in Belgium, Opel Antwerp would not have been closed. Or would it? Why are managers more reluctant to downsize nearby affiliates than distant ones? Vlerick Professor Filip Abraham, together with researchers at the KU Leuven, investigated whether decisions to downsize taken by multinationals are affected by the geographical distance between headquarters and subsidiaries. Their results were published in a paper entitled “Staying Home or Moving Away? Restructuring Efforts within Multinational Enterprises”.
