Being a Professor

  • As a professor, you will join one of the area’s in the school, where you will team up with your colleagues: faculty members, researchers and administrative staff.

  • Our professors teach classes at Master and MBA-level, as well as in executive programmes. We highly value the quality of our teaching faculty, and therefore invest in the development of our faculty, to help them excel in the class room. Coaching, case teaching workshops, training on presentation skills are just a few of the options.


  • There are multiple channels for research funding. Faculty members can apply for research grants funded by the Flemish government or the partner universities, or they can be involved in - or even set up their own – “Vlerick Centre for Excellence”, a research centre in close cooperation with the business world.

  • Our faculty members have the possibility to supervise doctoral students who graduate through one of our two parent universities.

  • Our faculty members are encouraged to attend conferences - typically one conference on the European continent and one conference outside Europe - where they present papers and meet colleagues. 

  • Our Vlerick faculty is supported by a professional staff of programme organisers and administrative assistants, who run the MBA and Master programmes and the executive programmes developed by our faculty members.
