Research is the cornerstone for providing new knowledge for our students, which is one of the key aspects of the mission of SBS Swiss Business School.
SBS has two different research centers: the SBS Research Center and the SBS Center for Entrepreneurial Finance. They invigorate education by fostering creative and problem-solving approaches in a team-based environment. They also serve as hubs for engagement for the corporate world.
The SBS Research Center's mission is to foster the research skills and competencies of students and faculty members. The center publishes different academic papers and working papers. The members of the center participate in seminars and workshops. The center organizes several research conferences a year. E.g. CIVETS, Seeking Alpha in collaboration with the SBS student council. The head of the center is Dr. Borboa.
In April 2016, the Board of Trustees approved the 2016-2021 Strategic Research Plan (SRP), through which researchers from different disciplines will contribute to discovery, new insights, and creative works.
The research center is responsible for the following activities:
- Assisting researchers as regards to applications for external funding

The research center focuses on the following main areas of research:
