Studying at Vlerick is a truly international experience from start to finish. You get the opportunity to work with fellow Executive and Full-time MBA participants from all corners of the world, and you’ll study business first hand, in one of the most significant global BRICS economies. First our programme runs you through a series of seminars and corporate lectures – so you’ll be totally immersed in the local history and culture. Then you’ll get to study local business and gain valuable experience of international business. Finally there will be time for some sightseeing and cultural visits.

Mario Castañeda

“One of the most exciting parts of the MBA was a trip to China, where I had the unique opportunity to study Chinese business on location. Through the academic lectures, company visits, and cultural and social activities, we were immersed in Chinese history and economy.  I also had the chance to network with some Peking University students, and, most importantly, I gained a broader perspective on how business is conducted in this part of the world.”
