The MaastrichtMBA is part of the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics. We have been accredited by the three leading international quality assurance bodies: AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. This so-called Triple Crown accreditation – granted to only 1% of all business schools worldwide – confirms our high quality of research and education, and guarantees a world-wide recognized value of your diploma. Furthermore, we have been accredited by the NVAO, the independent educational accreditation organisation for higher education institutions in the Netherlands and Flanders. An important practical advantage of the NVAO accreditation is that MaastrichtMBA students can get funding through the “Lifelong learning credit“ (Levenlanglerenkrediet). On top of the existing international Triple Crown accreditation, this confirms that our MaastrichtMBA is among the best in the world!
Our dedication to educational excellence is also reflected in international rankings where we clearly stand tall in the big boys’ league. CEO Magazine awarded the MaastrichtMBA with a Tier One rank as second best executive MBA programme in the Netherlands and 13th place worldwide in their Global Executive MBA Ranking 2019. Corporate Knights ranked our programme as one of the world’s leading game changers in the Better World MBA Ranking 2018, which is a major global ranking to evaluate graduate business programmes on their integration of sustainability into the education of future business leaders.
Apart from rankings on programme level, Maastricht University in general also internationally competes with the very best institutes worldwide. In two prestigious rankings that list the best universities worldwide under the age of 50, our university scores very high grades. In the 2019 QS Top 50 Under 50, Maastricht University holds 15th place and is described as “an innovative, research-oriented and the most international university in the Netherlands”. In the 2018 edition of Times Higher Education 150 under 50, we hold 5th place!
