Maastricht School of Management SDG-Challenge

The mission of the Maastricht School of Management (MSM) SDG-Challenge is to inspire and mobilize students and companies to work together on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN). These goals are set to combat climate change and to reduce the inequalities in the world.

Teams of the Maastricht School of Management team up with leading companies to work together on a SDG-Challenge of the company.

The organisation of the SDG-Challenge developed a special "pressure-cooker", so that the teams will come up with tangible and actionable ideas that will contribute to the SDGs.

During the final at MSM, all teams present their solutions in front of a jury. The team with the biggest potential impact wins!


"SDG-Challenge" is a platform that activates students to critically think about present-day sustainability topics and take action together with leading companies.
