The Vlerick Business School (Vlerick) is a management school of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, but operates independently. Founded by Baron André Vlerick - entrepreneur, politician, and professor - in 1953, Vlerick now has four international campuses: Brussels, Ghent, Leuven in Belgium and Saint Petersburg in Russia. We run a cooperative program with the China Center for Economic Research at Peking University. We provide MBA and Masters in Management; as well as specialized, general courses, and tailored training for companies.
We have more than 17,000 alumni from more than 100 different countries. But we are more than a business school catering to local and international students. We are also recognized for our outstanding programs. In fact, Financial Times ranked our MBA Program among the Top 100 MBA Programs and Top 10 MBA Programs in Entrepreneurship worldwide in 2015.
