Organisation and Staff

SBE Dean and Board

SBE is headed by a Dean, who is appointed by the Maastricht University Executive Board. In addition to holding primary responsibility for education and research as laid down by law, the Dean has been mandated with management responsibilities by the Executive Board, and thus holds overall accountability for the School.

The Dean manages SBE together with the SBE Board. The Board is responsible for the general management of the School, as well as the management and organisation of SBE's education and research.

The current members of the SBE Board are listed below.

Board of Examiners

The Board of Examiners is an independent and expert body whose members are appointed by the SBE Board. The Board of Examiners is responsible for implementing the university's Education and Examination Regulations (in Dutch, the onderwijs- en examenregelingen, or OERs), establishing guidelines and instructions within the framework of these regulations, issuing certificates and guaranteeing the quality of exams. The board handles exemption requests and complaints relating to test results. It also appoints the examiners responsible for conducting tests and exams.

The SBE Board of Examiners is presently chaired by Dr. Stefan Straetmans.

Faculty Council

The Faculty Council is a representative body comprised of members of the student population, academic staff and support and management staff. The council may issue advice to the board, solicited or otherwise, on all faculty affairs and make its positions on educational affairs known.

Educational Programme Committee

The Educational Programme Committee plays a major role in educational quality assurance and improvement within SBE. Consisting of students and academic staff, it is an independent body installed by law to secure the position of the student. The Educational Programme Committee is asked by the SBE Board or the Educational Institute (EdIn) for consent on some educational matters like the EER, and can issue advice, solicited or otherwise, on other issues. The Board and EdIn are then obliged to inform the Educational Programme Committee of the actions taken with respect to its recommendations.

The Educational Programme Committee 2023/2024 is split in three smaller committees: EPC Business & Management, EPC Economics, Public Policy & Business Administration, EPC Technology, Engineering & Mathematics. The EPC members of SBE are:
