Vlerick (Flanders) frontrunner in executive education

For the 6th consecutive time, the Flanders-based Vlerick Business School has been recognized as the best of its kind in the Benelux in the Financial Times’ ranking of executive education.

The ranking confirms Vlerick’s outstanding training programs for entrepreneurs, senior executives and managers.

The school is not only the best of the Benelux, but also the only one in the region to make the global top 50.

Patrick De Greve, General Director of Vlerick Business School, proudly explains: “We value this recognition very much. Coming in first 6 times in a row feels great. And considering the level of competition worldwide, achieving 32nd place in the global list is particularly significant.”

Ahead of the pack

Maintaining the number one position is not enough for De Greve: “We want to stay ahead of the curve. To improve our courses, we continue to innovate and experiment. Our ambition is to turn knowledge into relevant action for the business community. A complete executive education is essential to preparing students and companies to challenge themselves, the status quo and the changing world around them.”

Last year, over 4,000 employees from large companies like Delaware, Arcelor Mittal and Rabobank participated in various Vlerick programs. International workers on all levels then employ this knowledge to effectively transform their businesses. In this way, expertise from the Flanders-based school spreads like wildfire.
