The modular programme will run over 18 months and participants will be expected to alternate between both schools for one weekend every three weeks, as well as attending four, one-week blocks. Students will also be expected to take part in an overseas trip to either Russia, New York, Beijing or India.
The inaugural programme will have 25 participants, representing 10 nationalities.
Vlerick already runs an EMBA within Belgium which requires weekly attendance. The new programme - a response to strong demand - will address both schools’ international audience and will allow participants to maintain full-time international careers.
