Meeting more minds is the key to open innovation. Maastricht School of Management uses ‘mentorships’ as a tool to make its students familiar with the Dutch way of living and doing business. In return, senior managers participating in the mentorship program get personally acquainted with foreign business cultures and expertise.


About mentorship

Studying an MBA is not all about economic and organizational theory. Learning is also about doing and being. At Maastricht School of Management students live and study in a multicultural environment. This year’s MBA class consists of 23 nationalities. To give students access to a Dutch professional network and get acquainted with the Dutch way of living, MSM invites senior managers who want to broaden their cultural horizon to mentor an MBA student.

Senior managers from Dutch companies or governmental institutions giving access to their professional network and inviting the student for social or cultural activities, that’s the goal. Not too many parties of course because academic success stays number one priority. But enjoying carnival, theater or an exposition, can lead to mutual unique intercultural experiences. Not to forget the access of your company to MSM’s vast global network.

If you or one of your senior managers is interested in becoming a mentor of an MSM MBA student please contact us.
