The Vlerick Legacy
Vlerick Business School is the oldest business and management school in Europe. Founded in 1953 by the renowned academic, entrepreneur and politician, Professor André Vlerick. Vlerick Business School has been leading innovation in business for well over half a century. As the management school of Belgium’s two largest universities – Ghent University and KU Leuven – the School has built a solid, worldwide reputation as a leading, independent institution with a strong international focus and close ties to both the academic and corporate worlds.
Vlerick Business School is a top European Management School, with campuses in Brussels, Ghent and Leuven, Belgium, and St-Petersburg, Russia.
We offer 3 one-year Masters programmes for recent university graduates who want to make a long-term investment in their future career:
These programmes are delivered in English and run full-time from early September to early July and provide an exceptional foundation for a fast-track career in financial, marketing, or general management. Classes are alternated with various exercises and games throughout the year, and there is a 1-week study trip to a business school abroad. The programme culminates with the two to four-month in-company project, in which students tackle a business issue within a company by integrating and applying what they have learned during the programme.
Every year, we offer 1 full scholarship, covering the entire tuition fee to a student who is accepted into one of our Masters programmes. Go to the website for more info.

Sharing strong common values of openness and internationalism, BEST and Vlerick Business school have been partners for several years. In addition, our Masters programmes offer the perfect complementary business education for the strong technology profiles within BEST.
Therefore, as part of this partnership agreement we offer one full scholarship on a yearly basis (worth EUR 14,000) for non-Belgian BEST members who want to enroll in one of our 1-year Masters programmes. This scholarship can only be used as payment of the tuition fee and cannot be used to pay living costs or travel expenses.
"I applied to the BEST Scholarship at Vlerick School because I felt that my professional path needed a life-changing academic course. The prestige of this Business School has been decisive for my decision. The experience and the open-mind that I received from BEST will be the perfect foundation for this international Masters in General Management. I expect a completely challenging year full of exciting learning in real business experiences." Gerard Salvador (Spain), BEST scholarship winner 2014

"After being actively involved in BEST, studying for a Master in General Management at Vlerick seemed very natural, but equally challenging. The combination of great professors, very diverse colleagues and a good mix of theory with applied cases enriched my management knowledge. Since I constantly benefit from the Vlerick experience in my daily work life, I'd recommend the school to anyone who seeks a business oriented career."
