Senior Strategy Consultant at KPMG Panama
"Vlerick helped me decide to change my career path. I chose Vlerick because I wanted to broaden my knowledge outside of engineering and learn more about business management. I learned so much, from corporate finance to decision sciences, and from strategy to big data and analytics. Now that I am back at work, I really see the difference. Because I have a more holistic view of business as a whole, I can jump in during a conversation with the C-suite. I can speak their language and understand their points of view."
Account Manager at Hilti Belux
"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."
Senior Business Analyst at StepUp Consulting Sweden
"The Vlerick Alumni Network is an incredibly powerful platform that allows students to reach hundreds of leaders worldwide. We just needed to choose the business sector we would like to work in and we were able to send an email to request an in-company project meeting.
Currently I am working as a business analyst in a big data consulting company and I got the job at one of the first career fairs at Vlerick."
