  • My motivation to study at SBS Swiss Business School was that the classes are kept small, the staff is always available to ask any questions and my favorite subject is taught at SBS (Marketing). I chose to study at SBS because the bachelor is taught in English and I was able to learn everything about Marketing. During my time has made me aware of all of the challenges in the business world and it has made me more confident speaking in front of people in the form of presentations. I liked that the students came from all over the world, which made me more aware of different cultures and business concepts. My experience at SBS was great to better know what to think about when entering the business world and it enriched my knowledge about Marketing. I would recommend SBS to people that are interested in learning more about business and students that enjoy learning in a small class environment.

  • After completing my studies in the U.S I spent a number of years developing my professional career within the finance industry. Then I came to I point when I felt it was time to complete my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration to further excel in my career and that’s how I first decided to contact SBS Swiss Business School. To me the most important thing when choosing where to study was to have the flexibility to combine my work and school work. SBS offered a program where this was possible and in addition to that, they presented an interesting program focused on an international environment that attracted me. SBS has helped me finalize my Bachelor’s degree and by doing so enhanced my competence and knowledge within business administration. Furthermore, I have broadened my perspective on every aspect of being a part of the business after studying at SBS. I like the professional focus, the international study environment, and the highly qualified professors teaching at the school. I have also made some great friends that which I am very grateful for.

  • My motivation to study at SBS Swiss Business School and join the Accelerated Bachelor of Business Administration was to complete my previous business studies. It was important for me to complete a Bachelor degree. That the whole program was in English was a plus for me. The whole program in English was my true and real motivation. The education at SBS helped me to find a new challenge. In the meantime, I found a new job and I believe this was because of SBS. The great thing about SBS is its multicultural approach. Generally said, the bologna system standardized the studies around the globe but even though, SBS found a unique way for a Bachelor program. Overall, it was a great experience for me. It was a very intense but interesting time. I very much liked the multicultural environment. Especially in a time where everything is “harmonized” in education, SBS was able to create a USP for their study programs. I can recommend SBS, because especially the AAE program for me it is a USP (part of supporting lifelong learning). Furthermore, it is a great opportunity to have the possibility in Switzerland of a program fully in English.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • I choose SBS because I wanted great education, new challenges, to build and learn more about my passion and interest in finance and I wanted to be in an international environment. My three years at SBS gave me knowledge in various aspects related to business, provided with both theoretical (lectures) and practical (company visits) experience and helped to secure a job in Switzerland.

  • Studying at SBS was a wonderful experience. For starters as an international student, it was a new experience learning in Switzerland, new country, new culture, new language, new everything! SBS definitely helped me settle into this new environment. It is diverse and brings people from other countries so we got to share these new experiences together.

    The lecturers are also from different places so when learning you not only get to learn of your current business environment but environments from around the world. In all research projects I was encouraged not think of the area I was in but to think of the world and how each place has to be tailored to it’s needs. I think this helped me most because I have been able to come back to my home country and apply all I have learnt.
