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!
