Vlerick Business School enters back into top 15 of the FT European Business School ranking 2012

After narrowly dropping out of the top 15 in 2011, Vlerick Business School has managed to regain its top 15 position in this year’s European Business School ranking which is annually published by the Financial Times. The School is going up two places and now holds the No. 14 position in Europe. From a national point of view, Vlerick Business School consolidates its first position in Belgium.

In 2009 the School achieved its highest position ever, being ranked the 10th best business school in Europe. Overall, Vlerick has managed to maintain a stable position during the last few years.

Dirk Buyens, Academic Dean Vlerick Business School: "Over the past year we have deployed our strategic choices in a consistent way. Secondly, we have recently gone through a rebranding, yet remaining loyal to our original values, and alumni of the school. Our good position in this ranking now proves that this keeps on paying off."

Methodology

For the ninth year in a row the Financial Times has produced a ranking of European business schools. This meta-ranking is based on the results of five other FT Business Education rankings published earlier this year:

  • the full-time MBA ranking (January)
  • the open enrolment executive education ranking (May)
  • the customised executive education ranking (May)
  • the Masters in Management ranking (September)
  • the Executive MBA ranking (October)

The FT European Business School ranking takes into account the number of programmes ranked by the FT for each school and the quality of these programmes.
