International to the core

We are truly focused on the world.

More than half of our students come from Europe, Asia, and Latin America. We offer our participants an experience that prepares them to operate with ease across borders and cultures - in an environment that prizes diversity and the ability to bring a worldwide perspective to the study of business.

A fully accredited institution you can trust

SBS Swiss Business School is fully accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE), a US-wide accreditation body. National accreditation is the highest form of accreditation that an institution can receive. The IACBE has praised SBS as an innovator in business education. SBS is accredited by the British Accreditation Council as an Independent Higher Education Institution.

Corporate Connections

SBS is also certified by Eduqua, the Swiss Quality Assurance certification for Higher Education. It takes into consideration several criteria to assure the quality of the institution and is reviewed on a three-year basis.

SBS is intimately connected to the world of business through its teaching, faculty, events, and placement network. Business leaders frequently visit the School to talk with students or to teach courses and provide students with direct opportunities to learn about the state-of-the-art business practice. Companies interested in forging new links are invited to contact our Placement Office.

Classes often use current business problems as their subject matter. Students consult experts and participants in their decision-making and present their final conclusions to the company's senior managers. Through such "live" case studies, they track issues as they develop over time, and benefit from learning how to apply knowledge to the latest developments of the global economy.

Ultimately the strongest connections to business are through our network of employer contacts. SBS has an enviable record of placing its graduates with leading companies and institutions across the globe. A number of employers visit the School each year to identify suitable graduates to fill positions in their companies. Our Placement Office maintains a regular dialogue with potential employers and is ready to welcome them to the campus.

The mission of the institution is to educate individuals who will contribute to the management and leadership of global organizations.

Welcome from the Academic Dean

Many now hold to the proposition that the DBA is to the 21st century what the MBA was to the latter half of the 20th century. Without engaging in that debate it is certainly the case that work environments face challenges without historical precedent. Business and government leaders everywhere are confronted by novel situations for which past theories, practices, and strategies do not seem to provide the answers. Change continues to accelerate and the impacts of globalization, at once profound and subtle, affect all institutions and organizations. No longer can leaders be contented simply to apply knowledge, they must lead the generation of knowledge in their own organizations that inform practice and policy peculiar to their circumstances. In other words, business leaders today must be able to lead the conduct of work-related research. This DBA is designed to equip candidates with this capability.... [-]
