  • The programmes for managers with no financial experience − Understanding Annual Reports, Mastering Costs & Budgets, and Grasping Financial Management − can be followed separately or all together in our larger programme: Financial Management for Non-Financial Managers.
  • The programmes for experienced finance professionals are specialised programmes in specific Accounting & Finance topics or domains: ranging from Venture Capital & Private Equity, to Supply Chain Finance, to Create Value through M&A…

Not only is the quality of the programme ‘Creating Value through M&A' very high, but the focus on real-life cases and the practical aspects of the M&A process makes it very attractive for professionals and practitioners. I left Vlerick feeling well-prepared to manage the M&A process from beginning to end – so I recommend this programme highly.

Our expertise in Accounting & Finance

  1. What makes financial planning in a regulated environment so different?

    A considerable number of case studies on financial planning have been developed, but it is more difficult to find ones that deal with financial planning in a regulated environment. For the Future Grid Managers Programme, Professor Filip Roodhooft, along with colleagues from the Energy Centre, straight away developed two that play out in the regulated energy sector. In the leading roles are the Belgian distribution system operator (DSO) Eandis, now Fluvius, and the French transmission system operator (TSO) Réseau de Transport d’Électricité (RTE).
  2. Do banks give adequate consideration to risks?

    Although the 2008 financial crisis is already more than a decade ago, it is still fresh in our minds. Irresponsible lending behaviour by the banks was identified as its leading cause. What determines such behaviour? For his PhD thesis, Thomas Matthys investigated the lending behaviour of banks in three different contexts using data analysis and statistical models. We talked to him about borrowing in the interbank market, the impact of activist hedge funds and expansive monetary policy.
