WHAT OUR ALUMNI SAY ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

Meet Ellen Houben, Account Manager at Hilti Belux and alumna of the International Management & Strategy programme:

Ellen Houben"Before Vlerick I spoke about discovering the world and working abroad.
Thanks to Vlerick those words became reality with the Global Immersion trip and my current job at Hilti. Vlerick is an amazing experience especially for people like me who have a non-business background and still have doubts about their future career path."
