MSM MBA maintains top position in the Eduniversal 4 Palmes of Excellence ranking
MSM (Maastricht School of Management) retained its first position in the Eduniversal 4 Palmes of Excellence ranking, signifying that MSM classifies as a “Top Business School with significant international influence”.
MSM received the award during the annual Eduniversal World Convention held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on 16 – 19 October 2018. MSM’s Dean a.i. Ms. Kovacs accepted the plaque on behalf of MSM.
Ms. Kovacs was also a panelist in the session called “The right programs of Business Schools for today and tomorrow (curriculum transformation)”, where she talked about the need for MSM’s graduates to develop the so-called transformative skills and competencies. These skills and competencies were recently also presented in an OECD study, The Future of Education and Skills Study (2018). As a high ranking program it is MSM’s responsibility to prepare our students to thrive in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world. Ms. Kovacs said: “MSM’s graduates should be able to create new value, take responsibility and lead institutions in a changing environment.”
Ms. Kovacs also lead the parallel group discussions on the topic `Should the curriculum of the Business programs be universal or focusing on the needs of the region?’
MSM MBA has been ranked in the top 10 in Western Europe in the 2018 Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking and retained its #2 place in the MBA ranking in the Netherlands, acknowledging the quality and success of the MSM MBA program. The program appears in the Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking since five years and has climbed the listing to the top 10 ever since.
