Explore our On-Campus MBA experience

At MaastrichtMBA, we value personal attention and small-scale teaching. We devote a lot of time to leadership development and integrate action-learning projects into every part of this Executive On-Campus MBA track. Your education takes place in small group settings, as we strongly believe this facilitates the best environment for learning. When you study at MaastrichtMBA, we grant the best and most instructive experience for our On-Campus students by providing small-scale teaching, action-based learning, student diversity, a carousel approach and an immersive international week.

Small-scale teaching

The On-Campus MBA track is about developing talent together. We take a highly personal approach to learning with Maastricht University’s renowned Problem-Based Learning (PBL) as our leading pedagogy. We challenge you to acquire knowledge and skills interactively and in small groups as you share diverse work experiences. Reflecting on these experiences together creates valuable new insights. In fact – working closely with fellow students and teaching faculty brings you the most valuable learning experience of all.

Action-based learning

Your learning does not stop where the classroom conversations end. We combine PBL with experiential learning so that academic insights are tightly connected to practice. Our participants develop the ability to reflect on their experiences and to translate their reflections into actions. After bringing cases from your own work environment to class, we will show you how to actively experiment with your newly acquired knowledge in the workplace. After completing this Executive MBA, you will receive a Master of Science certificate and will truly walk the talk!

Carrousel approach

The On-Campus MBA track is designed to fit your personal life and career goals. It allows you to spread your total study load across 1,5 to 4 years, with an average time commitment of twelve hours per week on the On-Campus MBA track.


A smart bundle of eight holistic business themes can be covered in any order – an excellent solution for ambitious professionals who must prioritise work over study at times. For each module, simply choose whether you will join it now or at a later stadium of your MBA journey. As long as you complete all eight educational weeks in no more than 4 years, you are free to tailor your study to fit your personal life and career best.  


We meet for four educational weeks a year, filled with classes from Monday to Friday. At least six of these modules are organised by Maastricht University; and one or two of them is an international week that will take you to a country abroad at one of our partner universities. Alongside face-to-face interactions, MaastrichtMBA’s virtual learning environment serves to maintain your study rhythm anytime, anywhere. By closely connecting the in-class sessions with online learning activities, the programme offers a practical learning approach to management education.

International week

If you love exploration and learning in new surroundings, you will love our international weeks. They will take you on an exciting and inspiring journey abroad – anywhere in the world! International weeks are immersive experiences that take place in a foreign context to focus on pressing global challenges and other cultural perspectives on responsible leadership practices, sustainable business models and digital business.

They allow students to taste the country’s vibrant culture while attending lectures at partner universities and business schools, specialising in our elective themes, and trips to inspiring organisations to gain international experiences. An international week is part of your elective; you can choose it from our pool of elective weeks, and you can complete up to two international weeks with a focus on a theme of your choice.
