residential format of the MaastrichtMBA has been
developed for managers and entrepreneurs with at

have a passion for the challenges of managing and
leading organizations in a multicultural, global context.
The program combines the latest management thinking
with practice and applied research, with an emphasis
on leading and managing in multicultural settings.
The program is ranked #2 in the Netherlands according

accredited by NVAO, ACBSP, IACBE and AMBA, and

business education. It was one of the three nominees for
the Nuffi c Orange Carpet Award in 2014, in recognition
for its contribution to the internationalization of higher

Global and multicultural leadership skills are vital assets
for today’s managers. Joining the MaastrichtMBA class
will challenge participants to develop their management
skills in a diverse, international and multicultural
environment. The more than two dozen nationalities
represented in a typical class of the full-time, residential
format of the MaastrichtMBA create a stimulating
learning environment inside and outside the classroom.
This will help participants develop their global and
multicultural leadership skills and expand their 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.
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). With CSR and business ethics constituting an
integral part of the MBA curriculum, participants will be
trained to become a responsible and effective manager.
