Presentation: The Maastricht MBA
In the MaastrichtMBA the focus is on responsible leadership and in this context we stimulate you to develop skills to lead yourself, your team and your organisation.
Becoming more aware of your personal motivations, values, qualities, weaknesses, leadership views and challenges gives you a deeper and better insight into your own skills and capabilities, which allows you to develop an authentic leadership style.
In the MaastrichtMBA we take a highly personal approach to learning with Maastricht University's renowned “Problem Based Learning” (PBL) as our leading pedagogy. In small groups we challenge you to interactively acquire knowledge and skills that facilitate reflections on the participants' diverse work experiences. By sharing and reflecting on these experiences you create meaningful new
Of course your learning does not stop where classroom conversations end. In the MaastrichtMBA, we stimulate you to go the extra mile. We combine PBL with action and experiential learning, hence academic insights are tightly connected to practice by bringing cases from your own work environment to class. And vice versa: you are expected to actively experiment with newly acquired
knowledge at your workplace.
The MaastrichtMBA is designed around a smart bundle of holistic business themes you can cover in any order. An excellent solution for ambitious professionals who sometimes just need to prioritise work above study. For each module that comes along, simply choose whether you will join it or not. As long as you complete all educational weeks in the end, anything goes!
The MaastrichtMBA tries to accommodate working professionals in the best way possible. This is why the programme is designed in a modular format with four educational weeks each year, with classes from Monday till Friday. This is why we ask for an average time commitment of 15 to 20 hours per week. This is also why you are allowed to spread your total study load over a minimum of two and a maximum of four years.
Alongside face-to-face interactions, the MaastrichtMBA's virtual learning environment - supported by Apple's iPads and iOS - serves to maintain your study rythm anytime, anywhere. By closely connecting the in-class sessions with online learning activities, the programme offers a practical, blended learning approach to management education.
