Maastricht School of Management (MSM) and Maastricht University School of Business and Economics (MU) have partnered to offer a new MBA program.
The program is called the "Maastricht MBA" and is offered in both full-time and part-time executive varieties. The full-time variant, which launched this month, takes one year to complete. It allows students to specialize in one of five subject areas: social entrepreneurship, business and public policy, management information systems, change and innovation, or environmental management.
The part-time, executive version of the program is delivered over two years in a modular format.
Part-time and full-time students will take some courses together.
The joint MBA program is part of a continued partnership between the schools, which was announced last year. The partnership intends to "develop management education for both international and regional markets," under the University of Maastricht umbrella but with MSM retaining its name, identity, and brand, according to an MSM statement.
Upon completion of the MBA program, graduates will also receive a postgraduate certificate in global management.
To apply for the full-time version of the Maastricht MBA, candidates should have at least three years of work experience and a GMAT score of 600 or higher. Part-time program should have at least five years of work experience, in addition to a GMAT score of 600 or higher, or an equivalent GRE score. If part-time MBA applicants have not taken the GMAT or GRE, they can instead take four online courses.
Maastricht School of Management also recently began offering an MBA program in Hannover, Germany, through a partnership with GISMA Business School.
