Dean's Challenge

Category: Alumni Events

Our Dean, Marion Debruyne, challenged us during the Global Alumni Winter Reunion!

'I invite you to become part of the future of the school and to dare to engage. Only 6% of our alumni participate on an annual basis in our alumni events, and merely 0.6 % actively volunteer and create those activities. We can do better!'
So join us on 23 March in the Dean's Challenge and show us the real Vlerick enterprising spirit. Showcase your expertise and translate your Vlerick passion into an idea for driving alumni engagement and activities in 2019-2020. We will offer you a space and experts to brainstorm, co-create and develop your ideas! 

You can expect a 1-day design thinking workshop, where you will be able to learn and co-create with our experts in a flexible and thought-provoking environment. Furthermore, you will expand your network and make lasting connections with like-minded Vlerick alumni. Live an experience of consumer oriented ideation towards boosting the alumni engagement! Prior to the event, we will provide an online tool to kick-start the sharing of ideas online.

For our international alumni or the ones who cannot join us on the Ghent campus we have, simultaneously, the online Design Thinking Challenge on 23 March: 2-hour sessions of brainstorming and sharing ideas for Vlerick’s international alumni community using a design thinking practice, lead by Eliza Hochman – Learning Designer at Vlerick Business School.

Access to the Alumni online workshop!
We look forward to interacting with you on 23. March at 10 am CET.
