Each year we organize a CSR conference to give participants in the MBA program the opportunity to interact with representatives from the top international business community on CSR topics and best practices. Strong links to the business community Persuing an MBA degree is not only about management thinking and case studies.Thanks to its strong links with the business community, MsM offers participants in the MBA program exposure to the best companies and organizations in the region, who best exemplify successful global business and management. This is facilitated through our international management mentorship program, our MBA Business Colloquium, as well as an active program of guest-lectures and work visits. International management mentorship program MsM’s International Management Mentorship is a platform to link our talented,experienced and diverse group of MBA students on an individual basis to representatives of the local and regional business community and governmental institutions.This match allows mentors and students to build mutually beneficial and durable networks and relationships. For MBA students, the mentorship program is a unique and much appreciated opportunity to gain insights into for instance Dutch business and governance know-how.The initiative is also valued by local representatives,who see it as a chance to broaden their personal knowledge of foreign business cultures and expertise. The precise content of the mentorship is jointly determined by the mentor and the student.
