Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School has been invited to become a member of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), a non-profit organisation of leading graduate business schools around the world. The best known activity of GMAC is the design and management of the prestigious GMAT aptitude test which is taken by circa 250,000 candidates worldwide each year.  GMAT takers typically follow management education degree programmes at the leading business schools worldwide. The School has proudly accepted this invitation to join the governing council, as an acknowledgement of the major contribution the School has made to graduate management education. Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School is the only Belgian member ever invited to join this prestigious organisation.

Peter Rafferty, Director of International Business, Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School:The GMAC membership is very important for an international business school such as Vlerick, since GMAC is the most prestigious organisation in the business education industry. Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School will now be one out of 39 schools outside of North-America to have joined GMAC. This membership will allow us to sit at the top table of business schools in the world and participate in making decisions and doing suggestions on management education.

David A. Wilson, President and Chief Executive Officer, GMAC: “All of us at GMAC are looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Vlerick and its staff. These are challenging times for management education and having the opportunity to exchange ideas and work more closely with fellow member schools through our conferences, gaining more insight through participating in our market research and accessing the tools and services that we have designed to meet your needs are a few of the ways we hope GMAC can help you meet your challenges.
