“I found the Advanced Management Programme (AMP) to be very enriching and inspiring − with exactly the content I was looking for at this stage of my career. I learned to take a broader critical view of strategic issues and, above all, to dare to make well-considered choices. The most beneficial part of the programme for me was the substantive interaction with the diverse group of senior managers − a real sounding board! The peer group was very valuable, as we had the chance, within a small team, to go deeper into each other’s challenges and problems and learn from best practices. A strong team of instructors and very pleasant campuses provided the perfect environment. The AMP is a must for everyone who is facing strategic challenges or who wants to become a stronger leader!“

“The Advanced Management Programme had all the ingredients that I expect to find in senior management education. It was a good mix of placing self-acquired strategic insights into new (or existing) conceptual frameworks, analysing (less) successful business cases, and conducting enriching discussions with fellow executives from other industries and cultures. Thanks to the synergistic combination of theoretical deepening and stimulating interaction with colleagues – often from a totally different perspective – my strategic approach has received the broadening I was looking for.“

"The Advanced Management Programme gave me a deeper understanding of the areas that I want to develop in. this way I can contribute more to reaching our ambitious goals. The smart combination of modules on personal development, leadership and strategy, the camaraderie and sparring among the participants and the close interaction with our professors made it a unique and valuable experience."

  1. Sweet dreams are made of this… The success of Belgian chocolate exports

    Belgian chocolates are world famous. Together with Switzerland, Belgium is internationally known as the country of chocolates. Belgian chocolatiers win many international awards. Belgium is also the largest chocolate exporter in the world, exporting over 1 billion € of the sweet stuff every year. Based on very detailed export data in the period 1998-2010, researchers Filip Abraham, Zuzanna Studnicka and Jan Van Hove unravel the DNA of Belgian chocolate exporting firms and identify the factors that drive their export strategies.
  2. Distance matters

    If General Motors’ headquarters had been in Belgium, Opel Antwerp would not have been closed. Or would it? Why are managers more reluctant to downsize nearby affiliates than distant ones? Vlerick Professor Filip Abraham, together with researchers at the KU Leuven, investigated whether decisions to downsize taken by multinationals are affected by the geographical distance between headquarters and subsidiaries. Their results were published in a paper entitled “Staying Home or Moving Away? Restructuring Efforts within Multinational Enterprises”.
