About 
 
Originally founded in 1976, Maastricht University is the youngest of the 13 universities located in the Netherlands with a student body of almost 16,000.  The School of Business and Economics (SBE) was established in 1984 and is currently the largest college in the university. SBE has received Triple Crown accreditation which has only been received by 1% of business schools worldwide. The school offers programs including international business, economics and business economics, fiscal economics, econometrics, as well as master’s programs, executive programs and MBA’s.

Located in southern most part of the Netherlands, the city of Maastricht is on both sides of Meuse River. The city is actually nestled at the point where the Belgium, German and Dutch boarders meet to create an interesting cultural mix. Maastricht is a lively and energetic place with the allure and appeal of a European city dotted with Spanish and Roman ruins. Maastricht is also known as the birthplace of the European Union and the Euro by way of the Maastricht Treaty.

Courses

One of the benefits of participating on the exchange program to Maastricht University School of Business and Economics is that students are open to any course that the university offers. Additionally, all courses are taught in English. Checkout the course database to see what courses are being offered each semester and to see info about registration and deadline.

Housing

Most exchange students find accommodations through Maastricht Housing. Most of the buildings are located in the vicinity of the university and are easily accessible by bike or on foot. Unfortunately, Maastricht cannot guarantee that all students who apply for a room via Maastricht Housing actually get a room. Applications are processed on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Exchange students are not obligated to get a room from Maastricht Housing, even though it is the easiest option. Students can also find a room on their own in the private market. Through Housing Anywhere, local Dutch students that are going on their own exchange programs are subletting their apartments for the semester for incoming exchange students.

Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student

"I decided to study abroad as a means of diversifying my professional skills, not to mention my career opportunities. Studying abroad is one of the best ways to broaden one's awareness of the complex issues surrounding this new international/global era in which we live. It helped me perfect my language skills and gain knowledge of the political, social, and economic issues the world faces today. Furthermore, I believe the personal experiences I gained will help me to be a better leader to welcome challenges, and to challenge the status quo."
