"I applied to the BEST Scholarship at Vlerick School because I felt that my professional path needed a life-changing academic course. The prestige of this Business School has been decisive for my decision. The experience and the open-mind that I received from BEST will be the perfect foundation for this international Masters in General Management.

Name  "After being actively involved in BEST, studying for a Master in General Management at Vlerick seemed very natural, but equally challenging. The combination of great professors, very diverse colleagues and a good mix of theory with applied cases enriched my management knowledge. Since I constantly benefit from the Vlerick experience in my daily work life, I'd recommend the school to anyone who seeks a business oriented career."
