Vlerick is a social media friendly school

With an overall score of 74.3 out of 100 Vlerick Business School is ranked number 31 in the Top 50 Most Social Media Friendly International MBA Schools for 2013. Especially with regard to LinkedIn (ranked 15) and Twitter (ranked 26) Vlerick is doing well. The ranking is an initiative of Online MBA Page – a US based education community for MBA students worldwide – who recently put together a similar top 100 ranking of American MBA schools. Since it was so well received there’s now an international version as well.

Social media are an excellent source of information

There’s no question that social media are becoming ever more important. People use them for just about everything these days. Also prospective students are increasingly turning to social media to find more information about the business schools or MBA programmes they are considering. From watching videos on YouTube to asking quick questions on Twitter, students expect to be able to interact with schools online to get more information about the programmes they are interested in.

To determine the most social media friendly MBA schools, the staff of Online MBA Page spent countless hours collecting data on more than 300 of the top international business schools offering MBA programmes and gathered social media statistics for each one. Who are the most ‘liked’ and ‘followed’ international business schools on each of the most popular social networks? The result is this top 50 list. The scoring is based on a maximum of 100 points, with 25 points possible for Facebook, 25 for Twitter, 25 for YouTube, 10 for LinkedIn, 5 for Google Plus, 5 for Pinterest, and 5 for Flickr.
