Program Overview
As the business school of the largest university of applied sciences in Switzerland, the ZHAW School of Management and Law (SML) maintains close contacts with private enterprises as well as the public sector and important NGOs. These valuable connections play a vital role in the practical orientation of the academic degree programs we offer.
In addition to the academic advantages of a business school with multiple accreditations, many students chose us because of our excellent location. With the commercial, financial, and cultural center of Zurich right on our doorstep and the proximity to important international corporations and financial institutions, nothing is standing in the way of career advancement. With excellent travel connections in all directions and Zurich Airport close by, the SML is an ideal starting point to combine your academic education with a voyage of discovery through Europe. A huge range of cultural highlights and leisure facilities ensure that you will never be short of something interesting to do. So what are you waiting for? We look forward to welcoming you at SML very soon.
