Our valued students represent the global community of today. Here is what a few of them had to say about their experience at SBS Swiss Business School:
I decided to join SBS because of its reputation as Management institute and the well-trained and experienced lecturers. I profited from the modern learning styles of case studies and business projects. The flexible schedule allowed me both, to continue working and attending classes. I would like to give special thanks to the service provided by the Administration team of SBS. Furthermore I appreciated the support of my employer for the practical input of the final thesis required to complete the program. All in all SBS gave me the fundamentals for a career of the global economy. BBA (AAE)
My knowledge about the business world has expanded, and it would not have been so without the amazing classmates I was presented with throughout all three years! Their different backgrounds, cultures and experiences also helped to make me better in many aspects.

The Bachelor program at SBS was a very valuable experience for me. It has helped to understand the fundamental principles of economics and management and has taught me to apply these in a realistic context. After successfully finishing my studies at SBS I will return to pursuing my scientifical education, studying chemistry at the ETH. Therefore I value the experience at SBS for having provided me with a business and management view of things. Having finished my secondary studies I intend to work in the energy industry, focusing on sustainable solutions for replacing fossil fuel based energy. BBA
During my studies I enjoyed the cultural diversity of SBS’ teaching staff which taught me to look at things from different angles and to consider different points of view. I also viewed it a big advantage that classes at SBS tend to be smaller than is the case with state universities and lager business schools. As a result, the learning process was very focused and efficient. The lecturers were always easily accessible and ready to help with further explanations and discussions.
Finally, when I started to apply for jobs I was positively surprised by the good standing SBS Swiss Business School enjoys in the market. It took me only a few applications to find a job in wealth management, the area I was most interested in. All in all I would say that my studies at SBS Swiss Business School were a good investment.

The dean, professors and administrative staff were always striving to meet the highest possible service quality. It is the dedication and commitment of their team that sets SBS apart from other schools. BBA
The choice of the educational institution is very important for every young person. The choice of the profession is even more important as it influences the whole life. From the early stages of my life I was watching how my family step by step achieved their goals. I always knew that I want to become a manager and open my own business. I chose SBS Swiss Business School for the following reasons, SBS Swiss Business School provides students with a high quality business education in English and the diversity of the classes and extra-curricular activities is extensive with an opportunity to take maximum out of it. In my opinion, the strong point of SBS is its faculty. Every professor is experienced and teaches the subject from a practical point of view, supplementing the theory with case studies, in-class exercises and real-world examples. Nevertheless the courses are tough, teachers structure the lessons in a way, that every student can participate, and everyone in the class learns a lot of new and interesting information every day. All teachers do their best to respond to needs and wants of each individual student at all times, also supporting and giving advice outside classrooms.
SBS fosters a competitive environment to propel us for the ever changing world in the field of International Management. The amount of motivation and enthusiasm that each teacher exudes shows how much they want you to excel in your subject. A really unique experience with students from multicultural countries working together to achieve a common goal. MSc

I found the SBS DBA program to be a completely transformational experience. Science, not politics, is the most powerful force in transforming the world on a macro scale. During the doctorate program, one can expand one’s horizons and get a unique and informed perspective of the world, both from within academia and from the “outside” worlds of business science. For me personally, there is nothing more exciting than that. This experience gets you to a different level in everything you do, in terms of the way you think about the world as well as how to solve practical everyday problems. The doctorate degree is the highest academic degree and it is definitely worth the time, even though it requires significant commitment and organization. I would recommend SBS Swiss Business School to anyone who is passionate about science, who wants to get a greater worldview, and who wants to help to make the world a better place, faster.
