In addition to standard master's programmes, Maastricht University offers a number of programmes for professionals. These range from Executive MBAs to training in the health professions. Most applicants are seeking post-graduate studies or have been active in the labour market for a substantial period of time. The majority of the programmes are part-time, allowing students to maintain their career while furthering their education.
The programmes in the overview below lead to a master’s degree. We also offer non-degree programmes and (short) courses for professionals. Please view the Other courses overview for more information.
For many post-graduate courses there are discounts for UM alumni. For more information, please see the programme of your choice. For other alumni services you can visit our alumni pages.
Are you an IT professional who is looking to better understand enterprise strategy, leadership, change and information security management?

IT governance and assurance professionals are in high demand. Organisations, both large and small, need professionals who can ensure that their IT policies and processes support the organisation’s strategies and objectives. The master’s programme in IT Governance and Assurance will provide you with the know-how to turn IT innovations into business value and to effectively manage IT-related business risks. The programme is run in cooperation between Maastricht University’s School of Business and Economics and Antwerp Management School.
