As a corporate partner, you are invited to several networking events:

  • Our Annual Partner Research Forum, will take place annually. This Forum is hosted by one of the Chairs / Prime Foundations Partners. Goal is to provide all participants with output from leading research and peer to peer contact with the top management and faculty of the School.



  • At the beginning of the academic year our Masters students are invited to the Meet the Corporates event. The intention behind the event is to give our Masters students the opportunity to meet with the corporate partner companies and for the partners to fully showcase their company to potential new recruits. This event is part of the students’ curriculum and thus obligatory for them to attend.

  • The Meet The Corporates - MBA Talent Day is an exclusive opportunity to connect Vlerick Corporate Partners and other leading international companies looking for top managerial talent with our current Full-Time and Executive MBA participants. A unique chance to get to know and challenge MBA talents, so make sure not to miss this opportunity.

Check the upcoming networking events for our corporate partners.

  1. The power of ecosystem thinking within the government

    Date :

    Government bodies are in the midst of a digital transformation. But the design of new solutions often gets no further than merely the technical level. “If government bodies still want to be relevant in five years’ time, they will need the courage to set the bar higher and act as choreographers within their own ecosystem”, says Vlerick Professor Stijn Viaene. But what does it mean to take on the role of a choreographer? That is what we will be investigating with LoQutus over the next two years.

  2. “Entrepreneurship born of necessity”

    Date :

    From 11 to 16 November, 40 iGMO members headed to South Africa for their annual inspiration field trip. Their aim was to take a step back from their own companies for a while and acquire some food for thought, both from academic lectures at our partner institution Stellenbosch University, and from visits to local entrepreneurs in the townships. Professor Hans Crijns: “Here, entrepreneurship is born of necessity, but at the same time it expresses something incredibly hopeful.”

  3. Young Belgian growth companies should pay more attention to their governing bodies

    Date :

    A company’s Advisory Board and Board of Directors can have significant impacts on its performance. However, not so many young Belgian companies with growth potential have such governing bodies. Only 8% have Advisory Boards, and one in five have Boards of Directors. Although the compositions of the Boards of Directors are relatively diverse and complementary, only one in five has independent directors. Moreover, only 16% have a female presence; compared to the US (37%) or the UK (47%), women are under-represented on Belgian Boards of Directors. On the positive side, the Boards of Directors meet much more frequently than is generally recommended, which means that these young growth companies fully exploit their expertise. These are the main conclusions of the fourth edition of the Rising Star Monitor
