Newsletter #1/2022


MSM is off to a busy and stimulating start. With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, we have been delighted to welcome our full-time MBA and Master in Management students back on-campus in Maastricht. And for the sixth consecutive year, MSM’s Executive MBA and Online MBA programs scored outstanding marks in CEO Magazine’s Global MBA Ranking, consolidating our recognition as a Tier One Business School.

This newsletter shines the light on three training and capacity-building projects in Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Uganda. Together with our partners and stakeholders, we successfully work with local enterprises to achieve sustainable economic growth.

We also hear from a senior accountant who explains how insightful she found it to exchange views with non-specialist fellow students during her Executive MBA course on Accounting for Managers and Finance. In another testimonial, several participants of our hybrid Corporate Social Responsibility program describe why they now feel equipped to analyze and develop CSR strategies for their organizations.

Check our upcoming webinars and fairs, and make sure to take advantage of the early bird registration fees for our Master in Management, Full-time MBA, Online MBA and Research Methods and Skills programs!

We wish you all a healthy and bright time ahead.

With best regards,

Meinhard Gans
Chief Executive Officer
