Newsletter #7/2019


It is with a great sense of pride that we look back on our inspiring Graduation Day for more than 100 students who successfully obtained their Master in Management, MBA, MPhil and DBA degrees at MSM on 19 September. Simultaneously, we look ahead with renewed anticipation as we embark upon a new academic year, filled with stimulating activities aimed to enhance our students’ personal development and professional growth. We warmly invite you to watch our brand new video made with the MSM Class of 2019 to experience the vibrant study environment offered at MSM.

As a signatory of the Principles of Responsible Management (PRME), we welcomed the opportunity to show our commitment to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and to responsible and ethical management education, both at local and global levels, during the #Act4GlobalGoals Day in Maastricht on 25 September. Many among our staff, incoming students and alumni participated in this energizing event.

In other news, we were happy to deliver two tailor-made programs to 27 Senior Managers from the Customs Department of Sri Lanka and to a 15-member strong Ethiopian delegation of deans and private sector representatives, accompanied by State Minister Dr. Abdiwasa Abdilahi.

Over the coming weeks, we look forward to meeting many prospective students during our Open Day on 19 October and at several education fairs around the world. Last but not least, let us kindly remind you that the deadline for our Online MBA program is coming up on 1 November 2019!
