I chose to study at SBS Swiss Business School as I was searching for an international environment that offers postgraduate degrees in English. The range of programs offered the familiar environment and location within Zurich have contributed to my choice of SBS. The program has enabled me to broaden my global perspectives as a result of the international demographic of students and staff. The postgraduate experience has been both fun and challenging. It enabled me to develop transferable knowledge, skills, and understanding.
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.
