History of Scope

SCOPE became co-host of ICC@M

For the first time, SCOPE was responsible for the organization and budget of ICC@M. ICC@M is an international case competition organized by Maastricht University and SCOPE Maastricht, where students from all over the world come together to compete on real world business cases faced by companies within a limited amount of time.


Intergration of the Emerging Markets Pillar

In January 2018, the former study initiative "Emerge" became part of SCOPE in form of an additional pillar. Since January, SCOPE also offers events in the study field Emerging Markets, which is a study track at the School of Business and Economics since 2015.


SCOPE Merger

In January 2017, the board of the former study associations SCOPE | Economics, SCOPE | 3MA, SCOPE | Focus and SCOPE Maastricht announced the merger of all study associations to one, new SCOPE Maastricht. The merger was initiated to improve internal structures and communication and avoid any financial inefficiencies. 


Birth of the SCOPE framework

In 2011, the former study associations EFM Academy and FAME merged to SCOPE Maastricht. The new SCOPE framework was born, with SCOPE Maastricht as an umbrella association of SCOPE | Economics, SCOPE | Focus, SCOPE | 3MA and SCOPE | Vectum. 


Formation of EFM academy

In 2002, EFM academy was formed through a merger of the two study associations EFM Alfa and EFM Imperator. These associations focused on Dutch and international students of the SBE respectively. After the merger, EFM academy focused on first and second-year students in the B.Sc. programs International Business and Economics.
