We have designed the MaastrichtMBA to assist managers to lead with confidence and impact, to be sensitive to context and culture, and to place a high value on integrity, respect for society and self-reflection.
Joining the MaastrichtMBA will challenge you to develop your management skills in a diverse, international and multicultural environment. The more than two dozen nationalities represented in a typical class of the full-time MBA create a stimulating learning environment inside and outside the classroom. This will help you develop your global and multicultural leadership skills and expand your global network.
Maastricht’s proximity to other major European countries and MSM’s global network of partner institutions, including partnership of the Global Business School Network (GBSN) only add to our attractiveness as an international management school.
In the MaastrichtMBA we work closely with other top educational institutions in the EU region, most notably RWTH Aachen University. This top German University, well respected for its leadership in technological innovation and learning, provide an important input into the MaastrichtMBA, offering a unique MBA experience offering the best entrepreneurial and management flair from the Netherlands and engineering and technological precision from Germany. The MaastrichtMBA offered full-time and part-time in the Netherlands are fully recognized by the Dutch government (NVAO accredited) and after completion of the full-time program non-EU participants can qualify for a one-year visa to search for employment in the Netherlands.
