Work with our students

Maastricht University students are well-equipped to add value to your business. Using Problem-Based Learning, our students work on real-life business cases during their study. This gives them the knowledge and know-how to tackle your specific challenges. A double-edged benefit: your business benefits from tailored solutions of next-generation business leaders and our students gain invaluable hands-on experience.

Recruit our students

SBE students are highly sought-after due to their exceptional presentation and communication skills, problem-solving abilities and teamwork (PBL). Education at SBE is internationally oriented, meaning that almost all our students have gained international experience by studying abroad. Are you looking to recruit new talent? Reach out to the next generation of business and economics graduates.

Research collaborations

SBE’s research community can provide the innovative solutions our partners need. By working closely with academic specialists, we can address your organisation's specific needs over a period of weeks or even years. This is a two-way street: collaborating on research pushes us to develop our programmes in line with real-world advances, boosting knowledge and exchanges of expertise, talent and resources.
