SBE among best business schools for executive education according to Financial Times

We are proud to announce that the open executive programmes of Maastricht University School of Business and Economics (SBE) have been included in the global top 80 by the Financial Times in their Open-enrolment Executive Education Ranking 2024. Participating for the first time in this ranking, this achievement highlights our commitment to providing outstanding open education programmes and affirms our place as a top institution on the international stage.

The Open-enrolment Executive Education Ranking is widely regarded as a benchmark for assessing the quality and impact of executive education. For this ranking, SBE’s executive branches (MSM, UMIO and UNU-MERIT) were assessed based on criteria such as course design, faculty, participant diversity, and overall satisfaction. 

Mariëlle Heijltjes, Dean of Maastricht University School of Business and Economics, congratulates all parties: “Participating for the first time in this ranking, this achievement highlights our commitment to providing outstanding open education programmes and affirms our place as a top institution on the international stage.”
