André Thibeault

From China Europe International Business School to HEC Lausanne, André has taught at many well-known business schools. As Finance and Risk Management Professor, André focusses on the value chain in financial organisations, banks as well as insurance companies. This focus shaped the finance and insurance department at Laval University in Canada and the finance department at Nyenrode Business University in the Netherlands when André was heading these academic institutions. This industry focus is also reflected in the new challenge of André, the academic directorship of the Vlerick Centre for Financial Services. André has just released a study on the performance of the Belgian banks during the last 10 years and he is preparing the same type of report for the insurance industry.
