The full-time residential MBA provides state-of-the-art management education to managers and mid-career professionals from all over the world. This full-time, residential program has been developed for managers and entrepreneurs with at least three years of postgraduate work experience, and who 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.
A unique distinguishing feature of the program is its focus on understanding and anticipating how the societal context within which organizations function will determine their success or failure. The economic rise of emerging and developing economies and their demographics, the threats and opportunities of climate change, corporate social responsibility, and the role of business in social inclusiveness are examples of these societal contexts. This program thus offers participants the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of these environments and trends and their relationship with the advanced economies.
The full-time residential MBA is ranked #2 in the Netherlands according Eduniversal’s Best Masters ranking, internationally accredited by NVAO, ACBSP, IACBE and AMBA.
It is the only MBA in Maastricht that is accredited by the Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Agency (NVAO) and hence fully recognized by the Dutch government.
The full-time MBA draws on MSM’s 60-year experience in management and business education. MSM was one of the three nominees for the Nuffic Orange Carpet Award in 2014, in recognition for its contribution to the internationalization of higher education in the Netherlands. And MSM was shortlisted for the Association of MBA’s innovation award 2014.
