When André Vlerick founded the school almost 70 years ago, he built it on a strong belief in the power of business as a source of progress and prosperity. And while that vision has not changed, the world around us is now very different. We live in fast-moving times, where constant global change and rapid technological developments can lead to overnight disruption.
That’s why we need entrepreneurial leaders who can make change happen, both in their organisations and society. We need positive change makers who are ready to take the leap and live their dream.
Our dreams give substance, meaning and direction to our lives. And under the right conditions, they allow us to touch the lives of others and impact the world around us. No matter how near or far your dream may be, one thing is for sure: you need the guts to take that first step.
Whether you dream of starting your own company, making change happen in your organisation – or solving a challenge society is facing – you can make it happen at Vlerick. We provide the inspirational, inclusive and international environment you need for your dreams to take root, to grow and ultimately to thrive. To bridge the gap between dreaming, daring and doing. To take your next leap – and live your dream.
In a fast-changing world, the future belongs to the people with the drive to keep learning. To become an entrepreneurial leader, you need to stay ahead of the changes happening around us but also be aware of how your perspective evolves. This is why we ask our students and participants to challenge both themselves and the status quo. Because you can only lead when you continue to learn.
As a business school, we know how important it is to keep learning and innovating. So we keep reimagining our learning journeys. We embrace innovative digital technology. We embed sustainable approaches into everything we do. And we work hard to build an international, inclusive environment.
Because learning drives the entire Vlerick community: challenge yourself always, be a student always.
Your time at Vlerick will be a transformative experience. It will broaden your perspective, open up new opportunities and ignite the entrepreneurial fire within you. And it will give you the support you need to take your next leap - in your career, in your organisation and in the world.
Your leap comes when you have the confidence to turn the knowledge, skills and tools you’ve gained into action.
When you take it, you help us to achieve our own purpose: to transform people for a better world. To attract entrepreneurial leaders, spark their passion and channel it into a positive force for change.
Each leap has the potential to inspire others to take their own leap – creating a ripple effect whose impact can be felt around the globe. All you need to start the ripple is the confidence to leap.
