As of 1 January 2020, MaastrichtMBA expands its successful international executive MBA programme with an online track, called EuroMBA Online. The structural design of this track is based on 25 years of experience acquired within the EuroMBA; one of the first MBAs managed by six European partner universities, including Maastricht University. Parts of the existing EuroMBA programme structure will be revised and copied into MaastrichtMBA. The current independent EuroMBA consortium and programme will cease to exist and the EuroMBA consortium will be dissolved.
The EuroMBA Online track will consist of ten online courses, complemented by three residential weeks on campus. Students follow one week of classes at Maastricht University and decide where to spend the other two residential weeks. They can choose from four partner universities.
MaastrichtMBA’s new EuroMBA Online track will run in parallel with the programme’s current Executive track, which offers participants eight educational weeks in a face-to-face format. The online track allows participants greater flexibility when travelling around the world or while working from a remote location, which for some professionals will ease the balance between work, study and private life.
MaastrichtMBA is part of UMIO, the executive branch of Maastricht University’s School of Business and Economics. With a Triple Crown accreditation from the international quality assurance bodies AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA, the business school enjoys maximum international recognition as part of a select group of 1% of all educational institutes worldwide. The MaastrichtMBA programme is also acknowledged by the Dutch-Flemish accreditation organisation, NVAO.
MBA students who successfully complete the new EuroMBA Online track starting at 1 January 2020, will thus receive an MBA diploma from Maastricht University that is officially recognised by the Dutch Ministry of Education.
