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. With a 2nd place worldwide, Corporate Knights ranked our programme as one of the world’s leading game changers in the 2021 Better World MBA Ranking, which is a major global ranking to evaluate graduate business programmes on their integration of sustainable development topics, and faculty gender as well as racial diversity into the education of future business leaders. CEO Magazine ranked MaastrichtMBA’s Online track on a 7th place worldwide in the Global Online MBA Rankings 2022. Next to that, the On-Campus track is ranked 17th worldwide in the 2022 Global Executive MBA Rankings.
