UMIO’s MaastrichtMBA programme moves up the grade on sustainable development as it impressively managed to rank 16th globally in the newly published 2020 Better World MBA Ranking organised by Corporate Knights. With this position, Maastricht University School of Business and Economics also tops the chart of Dutch business schools in a longlist of 150 internationally ranked and accredited institutes worldwide.
Sustainability showcase for top business schools
The 2020 Corporate Knights Better World MBA Ranking evaluates 150 business schools, drawn from the 2019 Financial Times list of Top 100 Global MBA programmes, every programme that made 2019 Better World’s top-40 roster and business schools accredited by AMBA, AACSB or EQUIS that opt-in for evaluation.
From this pool, programmes are evaluated across sustainability-focused articles and citations, courses that incorporate sustainable development topics, research institutes and centres devoted to sustainable development issues, and faculty gender as well as racial diversity. As such, the Corporate Knights’ ranking provides prospective students with a good reference to the scope and scale of education and research in these areas, which are becoming more and more important to design a bright future for current and future generations in business and society.
