New Executive MBA kicks off at the Brussels campus

First degree programme to be launched at new Vlerick campus

The new Brussels based Executive MBA programme took off to a good start last Monday with 24 participants, representing 7 different nationalities and 9 industries. The average age of the participants is 37. On average they have 11 years of working experience. This is the very first degree programme that is taking place at the new Vlerick campus in Brussels. It’s an evening format with weekly classes on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Behzad Samii, Vlerick professor of Supply Chain Management, will take up the role as programme director. After the first two evening classes he feels delighted to be working with such talented and enthusiastic individuals. And he’s very positive about the future of this new programme. “The wealth of knowledge and experience in the group warrants lively and vivid discussions during the courses and especially group work. The quality and diversity of our students in this first cohort of the Executive MBA in Brussels is a living proof of the thirst for knowledge at graduate level business education in the heart of Europe. That thirst can be quenched by the quality education provided by Vlerick Business School at the centrally located state-of-the-art Brussels campus. I have no doubt that the positive word of mouth spread by this first group, in addition to the relentless effort of our talent hunters, will cement the future growth and prosperity of the programme.”

Flexible programme structure

The Vlerick Executive MBA Programme has been designed to offer maximum flexibility and fit the working schedule of our candidates. With this in mind we offer three different formats. The evening format in Brussels has classes twice a week. Besides that you can also opt for a 3 weekly class rotation either on Fridays and Saturdays at the Ghent campus or the weekend formula on Saturdays and Sundays at the Leuven campus.
