Located in the heart of Europe, within easy access of Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne, Frankfurt, London and Paris, Maastricht School of Management (MsM) is one of the oldest and most international business schools in the Netherlands. Located in Europe, but an established global player, we know how much good management matters for success. We know how important it is to make internationally accredited management education accessible. Our programs are offered around the world, from Cairo to Lima to Nanjing, and elsewhere. Forging the established with the new and the north with the south, our distinct approach to business equips our students and clients to flourish in a world where rapid change and the importance of knowledge are the only two givens.
We believe our graduates learn more about themselves, as they learn about the world at MsM. Ultimately this is what will give them and their organizations the edge in life and business.
Having been a global player in management education for 60 years, MsM understands that management education is not so much about internationalization per se anymore. It is after all, the age of social media - and hence it is a standard requirement for a top class business school to be global. What management education needs now, more than ever, is substance. It is all about quality and relevance. And quality and relevance requires being constantly in touch, constantly innovating, always understanding the fundamental challenges and opportunities that managers, entrepreneurs and other decision-makers face. This is MsM. Old in years, but young in spirit; located in Europe, but present in the world; working with business, but working for people. In a time where crisis, greed and exploitation of human and natural resources are all too frequently headline news, we have been a passionate champion of sustainability - social, environmental and business sustainability. We believe our graduates learn more about themselves, as they learn about the world at MsM. Ultimately this is what will give them and their organizations the edge in life and business.
