Vlerick expertise in General Management

  1. What does the future have in store for China and the EU?

    We live in economically and geopolitically turbulent times. Considering that the EU can, in all likelihood, no longer depend on the unconditional support of its most important trade partner, the USA, the EU has been accelerating the process of concluding free trade agreements with Canada, Japan, Australia, the MERCOSUR countries, Singapore and the ASEAN member states. However the absence of China from this list is striking. Nevertheless, China and the EU could both benefit from closer collaboration. Professor Filip Abraham and Jan Van Hove take a close look at the trade and investment relationship between the two parties - from the perspective of the EU.
  2. Staying ahead of the political game

    Some see office politics as a necessary evil; some welcome the opportunity to show their political skills. Others simply refuse to play ‘the game’. But it’s not a winning or losing game. Being politically savvy doesn’t mean that you win at the expense of someone else. It’s not about being false or self-centred either. Or playing favourites, let alone back-stabbing. On the contrary: we argue that remaining authentic is of vital importance.
