Testimonial Accelerated Adult Education

"I am a BBA graduate from SBS Swiss Business School working for ALSTOM Canada as project controller on large hydro projects.

I attended the BBA (AAE) program at SBS in order to achieve an international and accredited degree in business management as an additional reference for a movement abroad within the ALSTOM Group.

I focused my studies on Corporate- and International finance to ensure better analysis of risks and opportunities in the global marketplace. I also had a great opportunity to develop my soft skills in decision making processes and communication.

I decided to join SBS because of its reputation as Management institute and the well-trained and experienced lecturers. I profited from the modern learning styles of case studies and business projects. The flexible schedule allowed me both, to continue working and attending classes.

I would like to give special thanks to the service provided by the Administration team of SBS. Furthermore I appreciated the support of my employer for the practical input of the final thesis required to complete the program.

All in all SBS gave me the fundamentals for a career of the global economy."
