Vlerick Master programs

The Masters are all 12 month programmes and there are 3 different subjects on offer:

Masters in Finance

Masters in General Management

The programmes differ from other Masters programmes as they are very practical compared to many other programmes.

Main Features:

1.Dynamic approach

Our faculty stimulate teamwork and active participation in class. Many lectures are built on real company cases or testimonials from entrepreneurs and business leaders from a variety of companies.

2. Real world in-company project

Before graduation, you spend 2 to 4 months in a company to conduct a consultancy project. This project challenges you to apply the theoretical concepts you have acquired during the programme to a real management problem.

3. Career services and placement

The Vlerick Career Services staff assist you in your pursuit of a challenging job through a mix of company presentations, job fairs, personal coaching, networking with alumni, an online CV guide, job postings and much more.

During the programme, you will embark on three off-campus seminars. A 3-day opening seminar, a one-week international trip and a closing seminar to reflect on the past year. Previous destinations for the international study trip have been Dublin, Madrid, London, Krakow and Budapest.
