"Vlerick’s Masters in General Management caught my attention because of its short duration, reasonable tuition and clear communication with staff. I learned a lot of useful things, made great contacts and refuelled my confidence to keep going after my dreams."

"Vlerick really wants to make the content as action-oriented as possible, while still preserving an academic standard. Including real business cases and assignments in the programme and having the opportunity to work on an In-Company Project, instead of a purely theoretical masters dissertation are clear examples of this. Vlerick also has a strong network of alumni which can really catalyse your career."
