Research for Business in Accounting & Finance

Our Research, your Practice

Our Accounting & Finance experts share our research expertise with you when they work together with your organisation. This can take various forms: a research partnership over the longer term or shorter projects requiring advice and research.

Whether designing and implementing new cost control systems, developing or implementing a financial model or cost calculation system, or examining best practices: our experts diagnose, map opportunities, moderate strategic workshops and develop an action plan with you and your staff.

We stand by the scientific foundation of the projects we implement. At the same time, however, you can rest assured that our research allows you to implement it right away.

A Research Partnership that Supports Management Practice

Does your organisation benefit from a strong interaction between theory and practice? Are you looking for individual coaching? We’re certain to have a collaborative formula that is perfect for your company.

If you prefer a long-term collaboration with Vlerick, a Chair is a one-to-one relationship between a faculty member and your organisation.

An example is the Gimv chair on ‘Private Equity’.

“Management practice and academic research shall progress together or not at all. There is no third option. This is our basic assumption and motivation to build a Competence Centre on Private Equity and Venture Capital in partnership with Vlerick. The contributions from our client companies add an essential dimension to this partnership. Cooperation under this model offers Gimv professionals and the management teams of our client companies valuable opportunities to engage with Vlerick’s top-notch faculty and its extensive network. This makes for fruitful connections for all parties involved.”

Our Offer is Too Good to Miss

Does your organisation benefit from a strong interaction between theory and practice? Are you looking for a directly applicable solution? We’re certain to have a collaborative formula that is perfect for your company ranging from an in-company project executed by our students to a faculty led workshop mapping your strategy into a balanced scorecard. A Vlerick in-company project offers your company the opportunity to carry out a financial  or management accounting project that you might not normally be able to resource. Especially our students of our Masters in Financial Management are in great demand for various accounting and finance projects.
