Newsletter #8/2017

MSM Dean Wim Naudé

September was marked by one of the absolute highlights of the year at Maastricht School of Management: Graduation. Coming as this graduation did, during our 65th Anniversary, it was appropriate to reflect on our relevance as a business school. In this regard, the presentations of Mr. Frank Kauffmann (from Royal Philips) and Mr. Andrew Main Wilson (from AMBA) was both inspiring and reassuring. MSM’s relevance and quality are well recognized and appreciated and are our bulwarks against an uncertain future, both for the School and for our graduates. You can read more about the graduation, and our continuing initiatives in strengthening our relevance and quality, in this newsletter.
