Results of the ‘Financial Times Global Masters in Management 2013’ ranking

The Masters in General Management at Vlerick Business School has risen three places in the ‘Global Masters in Management’ ranking for the second year running. The Financial Times publishes this list featuring a total of 70 courses worldwide every year. Vlerick is currently in 29th position, entering the top 30 for the first time.

This fantastic result confirms the ongoing upward trend of the last three years: in 2010, the course was at number 37; in 2011 we progressed to position 35 and last year we went up a further three places to 32.

When we take a closer look at the results for the key indicators, which together determine the course’s position, we can see that Vlerick offers better value for money this year. In this area, we rose from 10th to 8th place. Our students can also be assured of excellent opportunities to progress to the best roles within three years of completing their studies (30th place worldwide). Our students also gave excellent ratings to the Vlerick Career Services team, which is there to assist them in finding a good job (11th place). Finally, increased diversity with more female students and international professors also contributed to our good score.

Miguel Meuleman, Professor of Entrepreneurship and Programme Director of the Masters in General Management: “This positive trend in the ranking comes as a result of continued investment in the content and framework of the programme. Our long-term vision for education based on action and personal development equips our students with the necessary knowledge and skills to help them get their career on the right track faster.”
