Maastricht University (UM) is the most international university in the Netherlands and, with 21,085 students and 4,300 employees, is still growing. The university stands out for its innovative education model, international character and multidisciplinary approach to research and education. Thanks to its high-quality research and study programmes as well as a strong focus on social engagement, UM has quickly built up a solid reputation. Today it is considered one of the best young universities in the world.
UMIO is the professional development branch of Maastricht University. Its home is the School of Business and Economics (SBE), yet its programmes and projects connect professional postgraduate initiatives across UM faculties to address the multidisciplinary challenges that many professionals and organisations face.
The programme falls within the research theme at SBE on Culture, Ethics and Leadership, where faculty provide leading world class research, in collaboration with the Faculties of Law and Social Sciences, at Maastricht University, all of which play an important role within the innovate Maastricht Centre of Arts and Culture, Conservation and Heritage (MACCH).
THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS
The Royal Academy of Arts (RA) was founded by King George III in 1768. It has a unique position in being an independent, privately funded institution led by eminent artists and architects whose purpose is to be a clear, strong voice for art and artists. Its public programme promotes the creation, enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts and architecture through exhibitions, education and debate.
The Royal Academy of Arts is housed in one of the London’s grandest 17th-century mansions, which spans Piccadilly to Bond Street in Mayfair. The RA is at the heart of a vibrant cultural quarter, rich with world-class commercial galleries and private dealerships, and is within a short walk of many of London’s top landmarks and public museums.
