The MSM Online MBA provides you with the same high quality management education as our on-campus MBA programmes – the only differences are in its delivery and its flexibility to allow you to study where you want, and whenever it fits your busy schedule.

The 100% online set-up of the programme will save you time and money for traveling abroad. Following the MBA online does not mean that you study in isolation. Through the interactive discussion forum you can stay connected with your peers and professors to share experiences, pose questions, discuss real business cases and initiate debates. You can also choose the blended option by following the expertise track on campus in Maastricht in June/July.

Study at a distance but with unlimited opportunities for online networking

Courses are delivered in 8-weeks modules, in an active learning format. To stay focused and to guide you through studying the MBA online, you will fulfill practice-oriented assignments every week. These assignments can consist of different tasks, all related to the topic of the course and can vary per week. Literature reading, debates in the discussion forum on video cases or journal entries, following lecture casts are all elements of the programme. Video cases in the discussion forum will initiate the debate with your fellow students while animated videos will introduce you to the weekly topic. Every two weeks you will discuss journal entries which relate to the topic of the course. You follow online presentations by experienced faculty in the lecture casts. The discussion forum is the place where you connect, interact, share experiences and work together with fellow professionals making you part of a diverse and international virtual classroom. You finalise each course with a final assignment. To monitor your progress during a course you will reflect on your performance through self-assessment activities. Our international faculty are highly experienced in the delivery of the MBA online courses and will guide you through the programme. Career service presentations and consultations are also available for Online MBA students. All these elements are making the MSM Online MBA the ultimate online learning experience.

Choose 100% online or blended

You can follow the MSM Online MBA completely online with no obligations for residential weeks. However, if you would prefer to have a face-to-face experience, you can join the expertise track courses or one of the other MBA modules at MSM in Maastricht. At additional cost we could help you to travel to our campus in Maastricht to take the expertise track of your choice or one of the other MBA modules in a face-to-face class room setting.
