Professionals are always seeking ways to excel in their fields, advance their careers, and effectively lead in increasingly complex environments. Similarly, international companies are growing more demanding, seeking professionals capable of navigating intricate fields and specializations.

This is where graduate education, particularly an MBA, becomes an invaluable asset for those aiming to ascend the corporate ladder with experience and flexibility. Hence, in this blog post, we will delve deeper into the MBA programs offered by SBS Swiss Business School.

By understanding your current needs, you can make a more informed choice about the MBA program that aligns best with your goals.

What is the MBA?

The MBA, or Master of Business Administration, is a graduate degree that provides students with an in-depth understanding of the fundamental principles of business administration and management. It is ideal for professionals seeking to gain a global view of business, enhance their leadership and management skills, and expand their professional networks.

What is an Executive MBA Program?

An Executive MBA Program, or Executive Master of Business Administration, is an educational option designed specifically for professionals with years of work experience in managerial or executive roles.

Unlike other graduate programs in business administration, the Executive MBA focuses on the development of managerial and strategic skills, offering a practical and applied approach that leverages students’ previous work experience.

However, any MBA still applies both theoretical and practical knowledge to cultivate expert professionals in this field, with the difference lying in the various modalities in which one can pursue such a program.

Difference between MBA and MSc in International Business

It is crucial to understand the difference between the MBA and the MSc (Master of Science) in International Business. While both programs offer advanced management education, the MBA is specifically designed for professionals with work experience.

On the other hand, the MSc in International Business can be an excellent option for those who wish to enter the business field with no prior work experience required.
