Universiteit Maastricht

School of Business and Economics





Maastricht University’s School of Business and Economics is highly ranked by several top publications and organisations – in terms of both its research and its education. We continuously aim to increase our rate of publication in the top international journals. A full list of our rankings is available here.

GSBE's research master’s programmes are accredited by the independent Netherlands-Flemish Accreditation Organisation (NVAO). This offers assurance that you are part of the top research School for economics and business in the Netherlands. 

Based on analysis of the programmes, quality control and teaching staff, this accreditation is the most significant proof of quality available in the Netherlands. Moreover, it is only possible to receive an accreditation for research fields in which high-quality output is generated. Maastricht University is the only university in the Netherlands with an accreditation not only for its research in Economics, but also for the whole range of research in Business Science.

Our two internal partner institutes, ROA and UNU-MERIT, also publish their own series of technical reports and working papers:
