BBA Testimonials:

“International business sounds so large and overwhelming. But it can really be a small, tight-knit community. The professors here know your name; the school doesn’t treat you like a number and living in Geneva means even the world’s center of business feels like your home. It’s family here.” - Maureen A., Ugandan, Bachelor in Business Administration

“Today’s business world is highly interconnected and globalized. An international degree is, therefore, both relevant and useful.” - Sherlyn P., Swiss, Bachelor in Business Administration

My UBIS/Potomac studies have already paid off by leveraging my knowledge to a higher level and awareness of international relations and diplomatic situations. This adjacent field of study to my current professional field has permitted me to be better able to guide our clientele in terms of asset management and financial planning using a global worldview. I plan to continue to leverage this knowledge and become more involved in NGO and other diplomatic endeavors as time permits.” – Michael C., American, Bachelor of Business Administration
