Newsletter #8/2019

Introduction

Business leaders and professionals all over the world increasingly understand the necessity and value of keeping their knowledge and skills up to date and relevant. Catering to this growing demand for lifelong learning, MSM welcomed close to 70 international participants in our skills- and policy-oriented short executive programs, focusing on topics such as Strategic Leadership, Change Management, Effective Leadership, and Project Finance and Management. MSM was also able to put this lifelong learning approach into practice abroad, by holding two successful Refresher courses on subjects as varied as Agritourism, Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Georgia, and Corporate Social Responsibility for financial inclusiveness in Bhutan.

A common thread between all of MSM’s programs, courses and projects is their commitment to creating a better and more sustainable global business environment through the practice of ethical and responsible management. In this vein, the fourth Executive MBA module examined the principles of Global Responsibility, and three recent international capacity building programs in Indonesia, South Africa and Tanzania.

Over the coming weeks, we look forward to meeting many of you at various international fairs in Europe and the Middle East and invite you to save the date for our next Open Day in Maastricht on Saturday 25 January 2020. In the meantime, please join us on our brand new video tour of our cosy building in Maastricht, during which our Recruitment Officer Inka Diddens answers all your frequently asked questions!
