Switzerland has long successfully exported and marketed its banks and insurers, its watches and medical technology, its social mediation and the Red Cross. Within a century, Switzerland evolved from one of the poorest countries in Europe to one of the most affluent in the world.

At our School of Business we educate and support, encourage and interact, advise and challenge the potential and current managers, economists and marketers to continue in this prosperous Swiss tradition. Equally, we practise and instill an integral sense of professional ethics and social responsibility.

Internationalisation is our daily business - we import it, we export it and we live it! http://www.universitieshandbook.com

  9. 9. The programmes of business in Olten Over half the Business Administration (International Management) or Betriebsökonomie graduates work in service companies (exclu- ding trade): these are predominantly banks, insurance companies, asset management companies, business consultants and trusts; the self-employed represent a small minority.
