Innovative teaching at the School of Business and Economics
Only 1% of business schools worldwide have been honoured with the ‘Triple Crown’ of accreditations. The Maastricht University School of Business and Economics is one of them. The accreditations are awarded by the American AASCB, the British AMBA and the European-wide EQUIS. Have a look at what the international accreditation boards had to say about us:
