The EIU MBA Ranking is one of the most famous MBA Ranking in the world. The ethos behind the EIU ranking is simple. For well over a decade the EIU has been surveying students about why they decided to take an MBA. Four factors consistently emerge: to open new career opportunities and/or further current career; personal development and educational experience; to increase salary; the potential to network.

 Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School has deep academic roots. Founded in 1953 by Professor Baron André Vlerick, the School has evolved into the leading business school in Belgium and one of the top business schools in Europe. The School benefits from the amassed knowledge of the two largest Belgian universities, Ghent University and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven.

 In November 2007 Prof. Anders Aspling (Dean Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School) and Dr Justin Y.F. Lin (World Bank Chief Economist,Former Director CCER) signed an agreement between Vlerick and Peking University. And in October 2008 Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School will be launching a full-time and a part-time international English-language MBA at Peking University.

 For the partnership, BiMBA is the only one which has been awarded three accreditations: AMBAEQUIS and AACSB in China.
