Testimonial Summer Program

"During this intensive week I was guided through the essential aspects of the financial world together with other international students from all over the world. Located in Zurich, the Swiss Business School is the ideal starting point to connect theory to practice. The reason I decided to follow this programme was to prepare myself for the master's degree Finance & Investments, which I am currently following at Erasmus University, Rotterdam. The Summer Programme has proven to be a very useful preparation and I can recommend it to anyone if you are looking for a fun and intensive summer school!"

Diederik Langenberg
Testimonial Summer Program

"The International Finance Summer Program provided by SBS has allowed me to grasp the general theories of finance-related subjects. The well-diversified class in terms of the wide range of nationalities and individuals from all backgrounds has definitely made the course memorable. Nevertheless, the two weeks that I have spent at SBS was value for money and the time well spent."
