Discover the Online MBA curriculum

Is there an executive MBA near me? With MaastrichtMBA’s Online track, there is. Our Online MBA track is ideal for professionals who want an executive MBA with a blended learning format without the need to relocate or put their careers on hold. This programme’s ten online courses and three face-to-face elective weeks allows you to study at your own rhythm yet with plenty of interaction with your peers and the course tutors, both on- and offline. Gain a foundation in management, international business, leadership and other fundamentals through a curriculum that will provide the skills you need to start and sustain an extraordinary business career.


You will kick off your MBA journey with our introduction programme, Leading in Learning, to gain deeper knowledge on how to become a better-equipped and responsible leader through the Leadership Development Trajectory. To complete your MBA, you put everything you have learned into practice with the Business Consulting Project thesis.


The total Online MBA track programme consists of ten online courses, which cover the functional areas of any business as well as megatrends such as entrepreneurship and organisational behaviour. Each course lasts six weeks in which you study the learning material, contribute to the exchange of experiences and knowledge in the discussion boards, follow webinars and check your learning success through quizzes. The online track is complemented by three immersive elective weeks at Maastricht University and other leading international schools on the topics of digitalisation, leadership and sustainability.
