SBS Experience Stories

  • I choose SBS Swiss Business School because I wanted to gain my knowledge in business but i also wanted to be awarded a Swiss Degree. Moreover, the MSc Program at SBS was also attractive as it allowed me to have full time class in the first year followed by a one-year internship, which allowed me to apply all the knowledge I learned in my first year. I would highly recommend SBS.
