"When I started the MFM programme at Vlerick, I thought I wanted to go in trading or work for one of the big banks. However, during the programme, I learned more about corporate finance, the current evolution in banking regulation, entrepreneurial finance, etc. This changed my view on what I wanted to do in my professional career and I decided to join a scale up in the fintech lender sector."

"Vlerick can’t be taken out of who I am today. For sure, we learn a lot of technical skills and we become adept to solve the most complex finance cases. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Underneath, we grow as a person. Before joining Vlerick, I did not have a clear idea about the different career paths and the full spectrum of possibilities. So, thanks to Vlerick career events, I am now fully aware about my destination, and about what it takes to achieve it."
