Covid-19 / Corona virus - Masters programmes

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back on campus for the first time since March 2020, when we took the necessary decision to close our campuses to guarantee the safety of our participants, staff and professors. 

For the upcoming academic year, all Masters programmes will kick-off in September as planned, in a safe environment with the necessary health precautions. Through our hybrid teaching format, we want to make sure that our personal hands-on learning experience, which is why you chose Vlerick Business school, will be able to happen face-to-face, in small rotational learning squads. The vibe on campus will be exactly what you’d expect from Vlerick – energetic, buzzing and full of possibility with room for personal development coaching and international networking.  For other sessions, such as business simulations or games, they might take place online, thus guaranteeing the most flexible approach, in a live online session. This hybrid way of working will also make sure your knowledge and skill set are future proof to tackle your career to come.

Our Cancellation Policy

None of us know what the next few weeks will hold. In a changeable world, we want to know that you can count on our understanding. Therefore, in order to give you some peace of mind, we want to point out that, as always, we have a Force Majeure-clause which is part of our cancellation policy also covering the current Covid-19/Corona virus outbreak. This means that if you should be unable to travel, obtain a visa or your diploma on time to join the programme in September, any commitment fee or tuition payments you've already made will be refunded or you may opt to defer your registration to the year after.
