No student wants to go to a ‘one size fits all’ school, so GBS offers a tailor-made schedule for every student. We realise the significance of juggling your professional commitments and your academic timetable.  After many years of experience, we have developed a system to allow the maximum range of classes every semester with the opportunity for all of our students to combine theory and practice.


GBS combines the US system for accreditation and quality control, the European (Bologna) system for credits (ECTS) and the Swiss grading system. The numerous international accreditations that GBS holds, allow the transfer of credits to other universities and ensures that GBS is in line with the quality-control bench-marks with other high-quality universities around the world.


Our head office is based in Geneva, but we have other GBS hubs and satellite campuses around the world. There are also any many international exchange programs allowing the transfer of students to and from our various locations. Academic credits can be accumulated across the campuses and you can gain a truly international experience. There are over 60 nationalities currently represented.


At Geneva Business School we make every effort to remain in contact with our network of successful alumni. We are proud of the fact that many of our alumni hold top-level management positions, in companies spanning the globe, which is evidence of the high quality of our programs.


At Geneva Business School we provide an exclusive and privileged education in a stable environment, inspired by the Swiss learning ideal. Through the concentration of core, orientation and elective courses, GBS strives to provide the best foundation for all of our students with an emphasis on “Swiss-style” small class sizes.


Our programs are regularly updated to respond to changing market conditions, because of the continuous feedback from our professionally-active professors, our alumni and our network of business and industry contacts. Students are able to cover all aspects of business but still have the possibility to focus on their preferred specialist areas of study.


Our philosophy, clearly demonstrated across our campus network, is to employ highly-educated and professionally-active faculty members to teach our students. Our current faculty have excellent academic credentials and many leave their offices and busineses to teach students at GBS, before returning later in the day to their regular working lives.


With the assistance of the GBS student council, students quickly see that the importance of participating in activities outside of the classroom is equally important to participating in the classroom. We support our students in maintaining healthy lifestyles, creating an active professional network, and engaging in the wider GBS community.


You have access to a dedicated Career Workshop Team that will help prepare you for interviews and job applications, in addition to helping you search for other helpful professional opportunities. Internships are offered during all programs with key companies and institutions in our network.
