The Maastricht School of European Studies

The Maastricht School of European Studies (MSES) aims to educate students to become European professionals and connectors, who know how to develop meaningful relationships between organisations, working at the intersection of government, business and civil society. The connector’s role is two-layered: In addition to working at the intersection of government and/or business and/or civil society, students also learn to work across geographical borders (either within the European Union, Europe or between Europe and the rest of the world).
MSES has embraced the following core values to underline its identity and ambitions: I am a team player – I am sustainable – I am intercultural – I am creative & critical – I am committed – I am respectful.
We strive to create a long-term professional connection with our students which starts in year 1 and remains long after graduation.
