The Geert Hofstede Honorary Fund was created to bring people from different cultures together to develop a deeper understanding of each other and how culture influences who we are. Moreover, it aims to support research dedicated to exploring how organizations can use cultural differences to create value. The fund’s activities are designed to build a network of people who are committed to responsible international citizenship.
The fund offers grants for students on different levels (bachelor, master, PhD) to study economics and business in an international and multicultural environment. Additionally, the fund organizes activities for students and alumni of the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics to encourage the appreciation of multicultural interaction.
Emeritus Professor Geert Hofstede was Professor of Organizational Anthropology at Maastricht University School of Business and Economics (SBE) from 1985 until his retirement in 1993. In 1987 he founded the International Management Programme at the UM, the first in the Netherlands. Hofstede is internationally known as a pioneer of comparative intercultural research; his concept of “dimensions of culture” is used worldwide.
