MaastrichtMBA retains top spot in 2022 Better World MBA ranking

We are proud to announce that MaastrichtMBA – the executive MBA programme of Maastricht University School of Business and Economics – has retained its top seat in the global ranking of MBA programmes that emphasise sustainable development. The programme ranks 3rd in Corporate Knights’ newly published 2022 Better World MBA ranking and again is considered the best MBA in Europe when it comes to its focus on sustainable and future-proof business education.

Sustainability showcase for top business schools

Corporate Knights is a leading sustainable business publication platform with a focus on how organisations, markets and governments are advancing social and environmental sustainability worldwide. Their 2022 Better World MBA ranking compared MBA programmes of 160 globally renowned business schools across key performance indicators related to sustainable development.

“Today’s top MBA programmes understand that future corporate leaders will be tasked with integrating social, environmental and economic factors into daily business decisions. By adapting their curriculums, these programmes are equipping students to deal with new realities and challenges already shaping the global business community.”Toby Heaps, CEO of Corporate Knights


Meaningful impact

The ranking by Corporate Knights provides a valuable benchmark for prospective MBA students who are looking to advance their careers in a meaningful, future-proof fashion. The rapid growth of the MaastrichtMBA programme over the past years reflects the increasing demand from talented professionals and forward-thinking organisations for expanding their efforts in the sustainability domain.

“The learning landscape around the topic of sustainability has shifted to become mainstream. In 2022, most people and organisations are acutely aware of the influence of their actions on the environment they operate in, so infusing the notion of sustainable development into the core of our programme felt like a vital step to empower our MBAs to create meaningful impact, both at work and in society.”Ron Jacobs, Acting MBA Director at Maastricht University
