How MaastrichtMBA elevates your employer’s success

Every year, we assist a large number of students to secure financial support from their sponsoring organisations such as their employers. Sponsoring students in the MaastrichtMBA programme, from partial to full financial support, can develop and strengthen a company’s leadership talent pool, while retaining the employee during and after the programme.


These are other reasons to financially support your employees and enable them to partake in one of our MaastrichtMBA tracks:

We combine action-based learning with experiential learning to connect academic insights to practice. Students learn to reflect on their experiences and to translate reflections into actions. Bringing real work cases to class and then apply the new knowledge through workplace experiments.

MaastrichtMBA offers a unique elective system. Electives serve as specialised focus areas, each encompassing three face-to-face on-campus educational weeks. Students have the freedom to choose from a pool of elective weeks with three compelling themes available: Digital Business, Responsible Leadership, and Sustainable Innovation. The elective system allows our students to tailor their MBA journey and build their own curriculum depending on their personal and professional needs and interests.

MaastrichtMBA’s Executive MBA programmes accelerate the cultivation of essential leadership skills, tools and mindsets through the Leadership Development Trajectory. This trajectory runs parallel to the courses. By spreading the trajectory, we offer a structure that stimulates continuous development and deep learning through reflection with peers, your coach and mutual learning.

Designed for high-potential executives, the programme offers a transformative and hands-on learning experience. The part-time format allow students to apply theory and concepts immediately into practice at their workplace. Continuously testing new insights and innovative approaches enrich their daily operations, which helps them make immediate and tangible impact, enhancing and improving their approach from the start of their MBA journey.

By enrolling in our Executive MBA programme, your organisation gains access to the extensive resources of MaastrichtMBA – a global hub of best practices, unparalleled business insights, cutting-edge research, faculty proficiency, and a distinctive network of top-tier firms, institutions and organisations.
