During my experience abroad, I ... (1) Never – (4) A lot
This was a Master Programme and the course is such that it has been squeezed into a very compact and handy one to fit one academic year. There were a few courses which have increased my knowledge and interest to a very good extent but what dissappointed at times was the fact that the school had to carry on with some redundant and uninteresting courses, because certain professers wished for the same. Otherwise, the course content was pretty good to serve as a springboard in the world of business.
“Great for international study program but limited in international career”
Belgium, Graduate Business Studies
Vlerick Business School
VBS is a good school with comparable study program for core modules. It has a good mix of international students making it much more interesting. Due to its small sized class teachers are focused and academic feedback is quick. Most of the teachers are are very friendly, approachable and helpful (except for few odd ones). Very fast paced classes
The key standout are the international trips. But it can burn your pocket if you don't plan your finances before hand because all of these costs are additional to the program fee. Entire MBA schedule was badly planned leaving absolutely no flexibility for personal life or extra curricular activities.

The school does not have a strong associations with companies and alumni, in-spite of how its advertised. Getting a job for internationals who do not speak French or Dutch is next to impossible and highly challenging. Not much extra curricular activities.
