02 Introduction

Switzerland and the United Kingdom are renowned for their high-quality education standards, especially in the field of business administration. MBA programs in Switzerland offer a unique blend of global business insights and local European market intricacies, set against the backdrop of the country's stunning landscapes and multicultural cities. These programs are designed to cater to the needs of aspiring business leaders, providing them with the skills needed to excel in the global business environment. With a focus on innovation, sustainability, and leadership, Swiss MBA programs integrate practical learning experiences, industry connections, and academic excellence to ensure a comprehensive understanding of business operations.


The UK, on the other hand, is home to some of the world's oldest and most prestigious universities, offering MBA programs accredited by the OTHM, a UK-based Awarding Organisation regulated by Ofqual (Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) and recognized internationally. OTHM qualifications pave the way for learners to gain essential managerial skills, strategic thinking capabilities, and the practical knowledge necessary to advance their careers in the competitive global market. These programs often include opportunities for internships, networking, and access to a vast alumni network, enhancing the learning experience and career prospects for graduates.


Combining the rigorous academic standards of the OTHM with the practical, hands-on approach of Swiss MBA programs, students are equipped with a holistic and diverse educational experience. This not only broadens their understanding of global business practices but also enhances their adaptability, problem-solving skills, and leadership qualities, preparing them for the challenges of today's dynamic business environment.


Due to the increasing difficulties in obtaining tuition fee subsidies from SIMI, which are also facing quota limitations, the arrangement between these entities will assist learners in accessing Swiss Made education. This allows students to earn degrees from Swiss Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and the United Kingdom, benefiting from the best of both educational systems:

  • OTHM Level 7 Diploma in Management and Strategic Leadership.
  • Master of Business Administration from Swiss Institute of Management and Sciences (SIMS).
