Newsletter #2/2020

Introduction

We are delighted to announce that the high quality of MSM’s MBA programs has been recognized this year again in the freshly released 2020 Global MBA Rankings by CEO Magazine, with top scores for our Full-time MBA, Executive MBA and Online MBA programs.

As a globally networked business school, MSM joined consortium partners in the kick-off event in late February of the ambitious two-year DJAM capacity-building project in Mali, funded by the Nuffic Orange Knowledge Programme. Here in the Netherlands, we hosted an investment and networking visit of a leadership team of the Amhara National Regional State (ANRS) in Ethiopia, aiming to strengthen the investment climate and relationship between ANRS and the Dutch government. Take a look at the recap video for an impression of the intense and successful week of visits and lectures.

We are also proud to highlight two new publications, ‘China, Friend or Enemy’ by Prof. Meine Pieter van Dijk, and a book chapter ‘Exploring degrees of wellbeing of women entrepreneurs in refugee settlements in the Middle East’ by Josette Dijkhuizen.

Finally, make sure to sign up for two upcoming webinars on 12 April and 16 April, where we will provide you with detailed and useful information about respectively our Full-time MBA and Online MBA program!
