Student Profile(s)

Andres Franco Morales

My life during the last two years has been enormously enriched after have taken the decision of moving to Belgium to follow a program at the VUB. I was faced with an undeniable international context; from the beginning I found diversity of cultures and people, legendary city-highlights, and endlessly possibilities when it comes to art, music, and entertainment.

Academically, my background was based on one-country reality and taught in one language only; so, the MMS at the VUB boasted my competences at another level. A holistic view of the world, of the MNEs, and of economic variables was my most valuable gain that I reached from the program. The content of the courses full of useful information that needs to be researched further in order to gain a deeper insight of the content, the variety of topics taught in class, and the willingness of the professors and administrative staff to support students in their learning made my experience at the VUB fully pleasant.

After this training, my feeling is of complete confidence to go out to the market and present myself as a creative, skilled, and internationally-oriented business manager.

Jhon Viloria

I chose VUB for my postgraduate studies because of its high academic level, high quality teachers, and it is recognised worldwide as one of the educational institutions.

My time at VUB taught me to improve myself and be more resilient.
