"Located in the heart of Europe, within easy access of Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne, Frankfurt, London and Paris, Maastricht School of Management (MSM) is one of the oldest and most international business schools in the Netherlands. Located in Europe, but an established global player, we know how much good management matters for success. We know how important it is to make internationally accredited management education accessible. Our programs are offered around the world, from Cairo to Lima to Nanjing, and elsewhere. Forging the established with the new and the north with the south, our distinct approach to business equips our students and clients to flourish in a world where rapid change and the importance of knowledge are the only two givens. We believe our graduates learn more about themselves, as they learn about the world at MSM. Ultimately this is what will give them and their organizations the edge in life and business."
