MAI-Track Alumnus 2023
“The MAI programme at Vlerick has been an incredible year where I broadened my data skills and sharpened my management and business strategy knowledge. What sets this program apart is the hands-on approach with interactive classes, real-life cases and a Hackaton to put to the test what you have learned. Not only the classes, but also the opportunity to attend career fairs and other networking events have been incredibly useful. This combination made the program a multi-dimensional experience of both theory and practice, in which I was able to build upon not only my skills, but also my future.”
