MAASTRICHT. In addition to the master’s of European Studies, another four UM programmes were assessed in this round. The master’s of Health Food Innovation Management in Venlo received a pass, as did the bachelor’s and the master’s of European Public Health. The last two also received the mark of ‘internationalisation’. This shows that graduates possess the competencies required to operate in international and multicultural environments, said NVAO.

The staff, coming from various countries, received a compliment: excellent, dedicated and innovative. The panel also writes: “We are very impressed with the international and intercultural experiences that have been integrated in this one-year programme. As far as this is concerned, Global Health can be seen as an example of international ‘best practice’.”
