Joining our Vlerick faculty team

Shape and inspire tomorrow’s entrepreneurial leaders

Come and help us make business a force for positive change in society. As a member of our faculty, you’ll help to shape our research, our relationships with the corporate world and our teaching.

With an open, hands-on approach, you’ll develop the entrepreneurial leaders – and thinking – our world now needs. And all the while you’re doing this, you’ll be supported in a collaborative organisation that prioritises and values diversity.

We can’t wait to meet you!


Being an academic at Vlerick

At Vlerick, you’ll discover our research centres, which attract senior business leaders – and spark relevant research across many topics.

Our research strategy focuses on rigour, relevance, reach and responsibility. It’s an approach that allows you to think progressively and remain relevant.

You’ll also be able to collaborate with academics in our partner universities of Ghent and KU Leuven. And we’ll support you to apply for research funding and encourage you to attend international conferences.

Connect to the corporate world

The strong connections we have with the business world are a source of great strength and pride. Our long-standing partnerships with organisations across sectors and the work of our research centres means that our approaches address the most pressing challenges facing business today.

From our base in Brussels, we look out over the European HQs of some of the world’s largest organisations. No wonder our outlook is so international and entrepreneurial.
