Dean’s Message

First of all, welcome to SBS Swiss Business School!

Deciding for a challenging Bachelor program is not an easy decision, but an exciting one. To us, the SBS Bachelor of Business Administration program is more than just a business degree; it is a life-challenging educational experience.

Switzerland is a very good place to study because quality standards in this country are very high. Situated in the heart of Europe, it has close connections with other European countries and it ofers international students a more global approach to studying.

There is no doubt that SBS Swiss Business School prepares its students for the next business challenges and gets them in touch with the real world.

I’m proud to say that SBS evolves and grows year by year. We measure this growth in the increasingly ambitious and sophisticated students who chose to study with us. We measure it in the way our students inspire our faculty to keep their classes professionally relevant and academically challenging. We measure it in our ability to innovate and develop new learning formats by engaging the latest technology. We measure it in our capacity to introduce new and interdisciplinary programs that meet student needs. And we measure it in the recognition we receive for excellence—in curriculum design, in student services, in teaching, in scholarly activities and in accreditation.

Finally, we empower our students with opportunities to connect with business leaders, our lifelong alumni support.

I wish you a successful and rewarding time at SBS!

Bert Wolfs, Ph.D. Academic Dean
