This achievement demonstrates SBE’s continued commitment to impactful and high-quality education.

This achievement reflects our commitment to excellence and underscores the impact of our innovative programs." - Mariëlle Heijltjes, Dean at SBE.

The AMBA accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement in post-graduate business education. Achieving this distinguished accreditation is a mark of quality assurance. It validates the exceptional education offered by our esteemed post-graduate schools: UMIO and Maastricht School of Management (MSM). 

Inspirational, Impactful, Sincere, Global

During the accreditation process conducted by AMBA, members of the accreditation panel, representing senior management from globally accredited business schools, commended the school’s vision for being inspirational and global in its impact. They thought the sincerity with which this had been enacted, had made an important contribution to international management education and capacity-building.

The panel also noted that the school could be considered a trailblazer in the interaction between AI and problem-based learning. 

Finally, the panel said that the problem-based learning approach of the University was commendable, with its emphasis on skills development helping to prepare students for the European and international knowledge society.
