Only two years ago, in 2015, MSM launched an Executive MBA program in Sports Management. This exciting program has not gone unnoticed by top athletes. Already since the start, quite some well-known Dutch sports players joined the program, like former professional football player Ronald Waterreus, and professional swimmer Joeri Verlinden.

The Executive MBA is set up in a flexible and convenient way so that you can balance of your career with your MBA study.

Joeri Verlinden is one of our students who proves that this is possible: “After missing the World Championships in July I’m extremely excited that last weekend, during the World Cup series in Eindhoven, I qualified for 3 butterfly events – 50m, 100m and 200m – for the European short course Championships coming December in Copenhagen (DEN). After 5 years of hard work I finally managed to do new best times, a very satisfying feeling to end my 2016/2017 swimming season. I’m really looking forward to the next couple of months where I will combine my MBA program at MSM with my full time swimming schedule to the best extent possible”.

Would you like to develop your management and leadership skills without putting your career on hold? Then the Executive MBA of Maastricht School of Management is the ideal program for you. Applications for the October intake are still open until 22 September.

Apart from Sports Management, you can also choose to customize your Executive MBA with one of our other specializations: Healthcare ManagementInternational Business and Sustainable Development, and Wine Management, or choose one of the specialization modules offered in our full-time MBA.
