Vlerick Masters students create their own magazine

The Masters in General Management students at our Leuven campus have written and developed an independent student magazine called V-Mag. It’s mainly business-oriented and targets Vlerick students, but also everyone who is interested in Vlerick Business School. The magazine is available digitally only and can be read online or downloaded as a PDF.

Current student and editor-in-chief Arun Luykx explains: “We feel that the magazine, both in content and form, embodies the spirit of the Vlerick rebranding. We've been able to gather a lot of interesting and unique content written by various classmates on topics ranging from the US Elections to interviews with Belgian and foreign entrepreneurs.”

The magazine shows how Vlerick students are very much connected with the world beyond the School and their programme, adding to Vlerick's image as a thought leader in research and education in business.

Here are some of the articles you can read in the magazine:

  • Hope 2.0: American student Hunter Tanous presents his take on Obama's re-election and what it may bring in future
  • Women on Boards: Catherine Billiet, who has a background in law, talks about the possibility of the European Union putting quotas for women on boards, and what it means for the current students
  • ILead: Arun Luykx presents a novel business concept where Chinese students set to study abroad in the US undertake cultural classes before heading abroad
  • Futurescope: a brief introduction to the event by organiser Bart Minne
