It is a result of a merger of the MBA programmes of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and of the Instituut Professor Vlerick voor Management of Ghent University, in 1999.

In parallel, the UGent and KU Leuven continue to offer graduate courses in management and business administration in their faculties of Management and Business administration.
In 2012, Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School changes its name and becomes the Vlerick Business School.
