SBS Swiss Business School is connected to the world of business through its teaching, faculty, events, and placement network. Business leaders often visit the school to talk with students or to teach education courses, providing students the opportunity to learn about state-of-the-art business practice. Companies interested in forging new links are invited to contact our Placement Office.
Classes often use current business problems as their subject matter. Students consult experts and participants in their decision-making, and present their final conclusions to the company's senior managers. Through such "live" case studies, they track issues as they develop over time, and benefit from learning how to apply knowledge to the latest developments of the global economy.
Ultimately the strongest connections to business are through our network of employer contacts. SBS has an enviable record of placing its graduates with leading companies and institutions across the globe. A number of employers visit the School each year to identify suitable graduates to fill positions in their companies. Our Placement Office maintains a regular dialogue with potential employers and is ready to welcome them to the campus.
