Maastricht University leaves little to be desired: with eight stars from ten categories it’s the best in terms of the criteria. This is not in fact a promotional gambit from our marketing department, but German newspaper Die Zeit reaching this remarkable conclusion with regard to our Economics programme: the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics was given an absolute CHE top ranking this year. This certainly does not mean, however, that we have reached our goal and that we can rest on our laurels.
In our strategic plan we already indicated our wish list for the next five years (2009-2013): taking the next step in the internationalisation of our School and with regard to international networks, working on top quality research and education, and last but not least, implementing innovations in our unique student centred education in small groups.
We will continue to focus and capitalise on these strategic themes. Still, we cannot do this without the continuous help of our colleagues, students, alumni, corporate partners and friends. After 25 years of School of Business and Economics in Maastricht we are more than ready for that next step. We hope you are, too…..
