Newsletter #9/2019

Season's Greetings

As another dynamic year draws to a close at Maastricht School of Management, we are proud to announce that our full-time residential Master of Arts in Management program has been accredited by the Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organization (NVAO) until 2025. 

Over the past few weeks, we hosted several courses and training sessions in Maastricht, among others for students of our joint part-time MBA program with CENTRUM Católica in Peru, students of our double degree MBA/MM program with Nichols College, Ugandan participants of the project “End Impunity of Sexual Gender Based Violence”, and international participants of our executive Corporate Social Responsibility program. Abroad, we were pleased to join the opening and graduation ceremony of the joint Executive MBA with our long-standing partner Nanjing University in China.

In 2020, we look forward to embarking on many new promising projects. In January 2020, we will start a new tailor-made training in Palestine on cross-sector collaboration to promote innovation in the Palestinian water sector, and a new project in Mozambique to promote resource smart green technologies in technical professional and higher education aiming to increase the country’s food production and nutrition security. Our recently launched specialized diploma program on Sustainable Development Management in Peru will start in March 2020.

This last newsletter of the year gives us the opportunity to renew our commitment to do our utmost to ensure an optimal MSM experience for our community of students and partners. We kindly invite you to check our website for our program offering and application deadlines. Our Executive MBA program in the Netherlands accepts applications until 17 January 2020. 

Here is to a prosperous, happy and healthy 2020 and another year of successful collaboration!

Happy holidays and best wishes,

Meinhard Gans, CEO
