SBS Experience Stories

  • I was searching for a challenging high level education in one of developed countries of Europe, and I was convinced to try an MBA program in order to learn more and prove my business skills in theory and practice. I choose SBS Swiss Business School as it was one of the top 10 best business schools for MBA in Europe. Professor’s ability to share their own experience in order to make students learn faster and the fact that they made the whole course look easier and full of activities. The facilities of the school were optimal and our program manager was always helpful. I would apply again for an MBA at Swiss Business School and wouldn’t regret it not for a second, even for the offered price I think it’s appropriate to the quality and excellence of the educational level

  • SBS was a must to my career development. After 7 years working in the banking industry in a managerial position I started a MBA at SBS and it was definitely the right choice. The knowledge and skills I got there, the multi cultural approaches of negotiation, the global view of the market, not to mention the great friends I got there were only few of the reasons why SBS was essential to my professional and personal life. I just got the best job I could imagine in the financial markets and this course was mandatory to get this position. I strongly recommend this course to all of them who are willing to grow professionally.

  • In order to get business people attention, you need to be different. And I got credibility of being “different” by completing MBA studies at SBS Swiss Business School, without changing myself, just adding value from this highly international institution. But this is only the form, the “packaging”. What really matters is the enriched substance one gets from colleagues, lecturers and cases and someone else’s experiences… …and I consider myself a very rich man in that aspect.

    Dragan Petrovic
  • From the administrative staff, to the multi-cultured students, to the teachers to the dean, all contributed to my success by bringing out the best in me and by continuously infusing me with the right motivation techniques to never give up no matter how hard it got at times. They all made sure you sat in those classes to succeed. The sessions were insightful, interactive, and practical. With classes ranging anywhere between human resources and international strategic management, SBS never stopped amazing me with its fully loaded educational program.

    Alexia Iskenderian-Alex
  • Studying at SBS has been the most unique academic experience I’ve ever had. Through SBS I had the opportunity to share and learn from senior executives coming from a diverse range of international backgrounds. SBS strives to develop global business and social capabilities. Groups are keen to broaden their experience by learning from both their colleagues as well as the faculty. The MBA program prepared me to advance my career within the international arena and to approach business problems with a mix of practical as well as theoretical knowledge. It has been definitely a great experience.

    Rodolfo Mendez
  • After working at Cargolux for three years, I felt that I needed to go back to school and get my Master degree and enhance my knowledge about business and entrepreneurship. Coincidentally, thanks to my business associates, I found SBS Swiss Business School. Thereafter, I had my first interview with the Academic Dean Dr. Bert Wolfs, who told me that SBS would change my life. At first I was astonished by this comment, but now, as I am finished with my Master degrees, it has indeed changed my life. I not only expanded my knowledge in business but also learning about people, culture, openness in society and mostly my own confidence in progress in my future career. Therefore, I thank SBS and the staff for giving me this opportunity as well as encouraging me, and always being supportive in accomplishing my goals.
