Without a doubt holding an MBA opens the door to top-level functions in the international business world. With over 14,000 MBA programmes worldwide, the choice of the right business school is ever more difficult. Based on the most important international MBA rankings, Handelsblatt - the leading financial newspaper in Germany and Austria – has put together a list of 50 schools where the effort is worth your while. It lists the Vlerick MBA amongst the 50 leading MBA programmes worldwide.

Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School is proud to be featured in this top list amongst other leading business schools around the globe. Handelsblatt especially stresses the international character of the School, both with regard to students / alumni as to teaching locations, describing Vlerick as the “Belgian steppingstone to the world”.

Peter Rafferty, Director of International Business at Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School: We are delighted to, once again, be listed as one of the top 50 business schools worldwide by such a respected publication as Handelsblatt. Germany remains an important market for Europe and the rest of the world and it is gratifying to be identified there as a leading global provider of management education.”
