Olivier Vanden Eynde, Close the Gap

“What really fascinated me about Vlerick's approach was the in-company project that we had to develop. It meant that I could use my training time to write my own business plan and test it against reality. I regard the good rating I got for my final project as a quality label. It also gave me the confidence to really go for my plans.”

"Each module of the Executive Master Class in Corporate Finance exceeded my expectations. The balance provided between theory and practice, and between corporate finance and strategic business considerations, is excellent. Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work for top companies in the pharmaceutical and life sciences sectors, and I’ve studied at a variety of schools. I know what the standards are and what good companies expect. This programme and faculty are world-class."

"This Executive Master Class has allowed me to focus on uncommon issues and to look at very interesting subjects from a perspective that’s different from my usual one – even with my broad CFO experience. I especially appreciated the frequent interactions with peers, trying to come up with extraordinary solutions to challenging problems. The case studies have also proven to be extremely useful in my professional setting. Top programme!"

"The Executive Master Class in Corporate Finance at Vlerick has proven to be of great value in the process of starting up my own company. The insights gathered throughout the various courses, the outstanding level of practical knowledge sharing and the continuous support from Vlerick staff, have enabled me to develop a sound and comprehensive financial plan that made negotiations with financing partners more transparent and efficient."

"Although it requires a lot of effort from each participant, I enjoyed the EMCCF programme a lot. The combination of academic professors and proven business people is excellent. In addition to that, there is a lot of knowledge and practice shared between the participants, which is very useful."

Kris Smits 

Kris Smits, PriceWaterhouseCoopers
International Tax & Transfer Pricing Director

"As a tax consultant advising multinational companies on transfer pricing and international tax issues, I started this journey to learn more about valuations and the optimal capital structures of groups. The Executive Master Class went beyond my initial expectations. The marriage of top academic speakers with people standing in the middle of fires on a day-to-day basis provided the insights I was looking for to enhance my consulting profile. Attending the class sessions and preparing for the courses requires an investment from each participant. However, the return you get back in terms of knowledge, network building and sheer fun is part of the unique Vlerick experience."

  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.
