SBS Experience Stories

  • My motivation was to become an expert in the management and marketing field and to build on a foundation that will benefit me for my future career.

    I chose SBS Swiss Business School for the small classes, professional experiences of the lecturers, and its location. I feel confident in the foundations of business and administration, specifically in marketing. Moreover, I feel that my education was relevant to the real world and the current issues. I feel ready for the presence and the future.

    I liked the personal approach, I could ask any questions at any time, I felt heart and that my voice as well as the ones of the others matter.

    I started SBS with low self-esteem and no objectives about my professional future. I thought that I will not make it far. Yet I am leaving SBS as the Student Council President, future head of the Alumni Committee, and a current position at my dream company and dream industry; I am leaving SBS with great self-confidence and in the best version of myself, may it be personally or academically. I will forever be grateful for this.

  • I wanted to achieve something that hasn’t been done by anyone in my family and with this achievement, it would be easier to accomplish a few of my life goals. I choose SBS because SBS had the proper format and flexibility that were not readily available at other schools. SBS has helped in many different aspects of my life. The most important way it has helped so far is that it taught me the basics needed to be a productive and valued added asset in the Swiss work force. I really liked that the lectures had the willingness to go the extra mile for all their students. My experience had several ups and downs but none the less very rewarding. I mean, what is life without the low and high points?

    Mathew John Weber
  • Having previously studied International Business in Canada, I was looking for a school which could further my knowledge with hands-on learning within a very international surroundings. There was always additional support from professors, program managers and the administration team if needed. An international student body also made for a personal learning experience. Understanding and learning about different cultures is something I always find interesting. I chose SBS Swiss Business School for the large range of programs as well as practical professional experiences next to studying. I was able to obtained two internships in large global industries, along with a part-time job throughout my studies where I was able to put theory into practice. I would recommend SBS Swiss Business School to anyone looking to improve the business knowledge from professors who work or have previously worked in the field they are teaching.
