New and Extended Accreditations for MaastrichtMBA

We’re happy to share the news that the MaastrichtMBA has been granted NVAO accreditation (by the nederlands-vlaamse accreditatieorganisatie). On top of the existing international Triple Crown accreditation of AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA, this confirms that UMIO’s MaastrichtMBA is among the best in the world.


The NVAO accreditation is an important national quality seal. It also carries practical advantages, such as the opportunity to apply for government-supported loans and funding options (see below for more details).


In related news, the Association of MBAs (AMBA) has confirmed the re-accreditation of the MaastrichtMBA for the maximum period of five years, placing the MaastrichtMBA firmly in the top tier of MBA programs globally.


MBA Director Boris Blumberg extended a heartfelt thanks to his MBA team for these two notable achievements: “the crucial people, who over the last five years, have put so much continuous commitment and positive energy into the programme”.

NVAO & Lifelong Learning Credit

An important practical advantage of the NVAO accreditation is that MaastrichtMBA students can get funding through the “Lifelong learning credit“ (Levenlanglerenkrediet). You can apply for lifelong learning credit through “Mijn DUO”. Visit the DUO website to check whether you fit the criteria.
