UNU-MERIT’s CDO programmes contribute to SBE’s Financial Times executive education ranking

Our capacity development programmes have helped the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics (SBE) rank among the global top 80 business schools for open-enrolment executive education.

Last week, SBE announced that its open executive programmes had been included in the global top 80 by the Financial Times in their Open-enrolment Executive Education Ranking 2024. For this ranking, SBE’s executive branches – Maastricht School of Management (MSM), UMIO and UNU-MERIT – were assessed based on criteria such as course design, faculty, participant diversity, and overall satisfaction.

“We are very pleased that the Capacity Development Office (CDO) of UNU-MERIT contributed to SBE’s high quality curriculum of executive education. In line with our institute’s focus, our course offerings cover training on public policy design and evaluation, with thematic focus on development, innovation, social protection, migration and sustainability. We welcome the collaboration with UMIO and MSM and look forward to expanding our course offerings.”

Mindel van de Laar, Head of CDO, UNU-MERIT
