Carrousel approach

Our online track is designed to fit busy professionals who do not want to compromise on their family life and career goals. Our online MBA track 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 Online MBA track.


Students can cover a smart bundle of holistic business themes in any order – an excellent solution for ambitious professionals who must prioritise work over study at times. For each online course, simply choose whether you will join it or not. As long as you complete all online courses and elective weeks within four years, you are free to tailor your study to fit your personal life and career best.


We meet for ten online courses and three elective weeks. Each course lasts six weeks, and online courses are offered simultaneously to create smaller student groups, allowing for more individual attention per student and more focused conversations in the online discussion forums. The elective weeks are filled with classes from Monday to Friday. At least one of these are hosted by Maastricht University; and one or two of them will take you on an exciting and inspiring journey abroad to a country such as Spain, South Africa, China or the United States. If you love exploration and learning in unfamiliar surroundings, we offer an exciting chance to embark on an additional elective week abroad.

Benefits of an online MBA track

Want to follow an MBA study while maintaining your own study rhythm? Our Online MBA track offers busy professionals an opportunity to follow an MBA study from the comfort of their homes. The online teaching format offers maximum flexibility, which makes it easier for you to integrate the study into your busy life. Additionally, students visit Maastricht University and one or two other international universities during your MBA journey, providing exposure to diverse international cultures and offering international experience.

The flexibility of the online programme draws in an enormous diversity of students. Professionals from all over the world recognize the benefits of online studying and sign up for this internationally focused track. We infuse this international orientation into our online courses, with professors from not only Maastricht University but also our top international partner universities hosting courses.

An online MBA track would not be complete without an excellent online study platform that enables intensive interaction with peer students. Our platform allows 24/7 collaboration on projects and exchange experiences. During the three elective weeks, you will meet your fellow students face to face. By closely connecting the online courses with the elective weeks, the programme offers a practical, blended learning approach to management education.
