Employer

Maastricht University

Maastricht University is renowned for its unique, innovative, problem-based learning system, which is characterized by a small-scale and student-oriented approach. Research at UM is characterized by a multidisciplinary and thematic approach, and is concentrated in research institutes and schools. Maastricht University has around 20,000 students and 4,700 employees. Reflecting the university's strong international profile, a fair amount of both students and staff are from abroad. The university hosts 6 faculties: Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, Faculty of Law, School of Business and Economics, Faculty of Science and Engineering, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience.

School of Business and Economics

Maastricht University is highly regarded in Europe for its unique teaching style and high-quality research. In fact, its School of Business and Economics (SBE) has been awarded three prestigious accreditations, resulting in the so-called Triple Crown accreditation. Only 1% of business schools worldwide have this Triple Crown, meaning that the School is amongst a very select group of institutions such as INSEAD, Vlerick Business School, London Business School and SBE’s exchange partners HEC Montreal, Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV-EAESP), and Aston Business School.

The School is a distinctly international institution with a student population numbering over 110 nationalities. Of the 4,200 bachelor’s and master’s students, more than 2,500 (70%) have a foreign background.
