Newsletter #5/2017

MSM Dean Wim Naudé

Technology, innovation, agriculture, and transport have become in recent times four of the most vital topics in any discussion on global concerns about jobs, food, water, trade, and migration. They reflect the increased integration and connectivity of economic activities that characterizes the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ (4IR).  As this newsletter indicates, Maastricht School of Management has been engaging in these topics intensively and globally this past month. For instance in our excellent Master in Management and Engineering Programs with Germany’s top technical university; in applying our expertise of agri-business in joint programs with the top agricultural university in Indonesia, IPB Bogor; in connecting Dutch and Kenyan agri-businesses, and in many other activities and programs that you can read about here.
