The Master in Business Administration (MBA) of Maastricht School of Management is an experience in the essence of organizational leadership and entrepreneurial management in a fast-changing, multi-cultural and global business environment.
 
<span 12px;"="">It is offered in three different formats to accommodate your needs:
Benefit from immediate results
Our MBA takes a practice-oriented approach, focusing on putting your newly gained knowledge and skills into your daily professional and personal life. Immediately from the first course you can apply what you have learned during the interactive lectures, practice-based assignments, work visits and guest lectures (on-campus MBA programs). You round off your MBA degree with a final project, either an academic research paper, a business plan or a business consultancy project. This will off er you the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills directly to real business problems or issues which companies are facing today.
 
Customize your MBA
The MBA is generalist management program, but at MSM you can also challenge yourself by choosing from different specializations to fully align your MBA with your career ambitions. Or perhaps you want to move outside of your comfort zone and develop yourself in a completely new area.
 
Develop your hard and soft skills to manage effectively and responsibly
Pursuing an MBA is more than just theory, it is also about developing your Soft Skills (sometimes referred to as ‘Complex Skills’). Throughout the MSM MBA program you will be challenged to develop skills in the area of intercultural communication, team leadership and collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, problem solving, self-awareness, resilience and time management. Moreover, with MSM’s MBA you will not only get the knowledge, tools and skills to manage effectively, but you will also gain a deeper understanding of how to manage responsibly. MSM subscribes to high ethical standards in business and strongly promotes corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainable development. We subscribe to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).
 
Join our diverse and global network
You will share your MBA experience with fellow students coming from different countries around the world and having different cultural and professional backgrounds. You will learn from experienced professors coming from and teaching around the globe. This not only adds to your learning experience but will help to significantly grow your international network. As one of the oldest and most international business schools in the Netherlands, MSM has built a huge worldwide network of students, alumni and partners – an interesting network to tap into and to be part of.
 
Program reputation
The MBA of Maastricht School of Management is internationally accredited, which means you can be assured that the program meets high global standards. Three bodies that accredit MSM’s MBA programs around the world are AMBA, IACBE, and ACBSP. Only a select few business schools enjoy these. For instance, only 2% of business schools have the coveted AMBA accreditation. Additionally the full-time MBA and Executive MBA conducted in Maastricht have NVAO accreditation. MSM holds institutional accreditation from ATHEA.
 
MSM’s MBA is ranked European Tier One MBA in the 2017 Global MBA ranking from CEO Magazine.
