The course fee is bigger than for a Dutch program due to a few factors: the program offers courses both in Bucharest and Maastricht, it includes 3 internship programs and a Personal Development Track that other Master in Management programs do not offer. Plus, when you add living costs in Bucharest compared to Maastricht, the overall budget will be lower for this program than one studied in Netherlands.

Check out our brochure to see the split of costs between Bucharest and Maastricht.

The courses take place every weekday, Monday to Friday, for a duration of approximately 6 hours per day. These take place at our school, on Bd Dacia, nr 99, 3rd floor and physical presence is mandatory.

For 9 weeks, courses will take place in Maastricht, at the Maastricht School of Management. Accommodation and travel are not included in the course fee, but we will help you find the best options.

The 3 internships are facilitated by BISM, meaning we have strong partnerships with local companies to ensure you get access to the ins and outs of multiple departments in the business. A list of the internships will be available at the start of the academic year.
Whilst a Bachelor degree is mandatory for the admission in the program, a business background is not. Our students have diverse backgrounds, including Arts, Science and Law studies. We evaluate each student based on their motivation to better themselves, academic performance, work experience and overall goals.
There is no final deadline for applications, these are processed upon receipt and places are filled on a first come, first serve basis (provided students are admitted by the Graduate Admission Board). After you submit your application, you will receive the approve/denied/pending status within a few weeks.
Absolutely, we host both informal and formal events where we invite our extended community, so you will network with our Executive MBA and Fast Track Management Program students joining it too. You will also have substantial discounts to BISM’s open courses, where our lecturers host intensive learning programs over extended weekends.
