About MSM

Maastricht School of Management (MSM) grew out of the Research Institute for Management that was established in Delft in 1952. Today, located in the city of Maastricht, it is an international higher education institution (incorporated as an independent non-profit Foundation) that offers postgraduate management degrees, executive education programs and that conducts research and provides capacity building services. We have long experience and extensive networks in emerging and developing countries.

Our degrees carry prestigious international accreditations such as from AMBA, IACBE, ACBSP and ATHEA and are offered in Maastricht and in selected locations abroad, with reputable partner institutions. Our MBA and Executive MBA programs which are offered in the Netherlands also carry the NVAO accreditation which means these degrees are recognized Dutch degrees. Furthermore, we are committed to the National Commission’s Code of Conduct which applies to full-time* international students in our Netherlands programs. Our commitment to sustainable development and ethics are reflected in being an advanced signatory to the UN-PRME and by supporting the UN Global Compact.

MSM strives to provide to all its students both in the Netherlands and abroad a quality educational experience, the #ExperienceMSM. On this website, you will find information on the programs we offer, including their rules and regulations, where we offer them, to which degrees these lead, by which agencies they are accredited, the value of these programs, the research and capacity building we provide. You will also find information on how to contact us for more information and how to lodge a formal complaint.
