Opening of the 2010-2011 academic year in Zurich

The start of the first academic year of our new campus in Zurich on October 4, 2010 marks an important milestone in the history of the United International Business Schools organization.

“With the start of our new campus in Zurich, we have laid the foundations for a permanent presence in Switzerland”, says Mr. Thierry Kirschstein, Managing Director. “We are strongly committed to the further development of our organization in this country and have initiated a range of measures to ensure that the quality of our study programs is outstanding from the very beginning, building on the experience and success that we have attained at our campuses in Belgium and Spain.”

Mrs. Nancy Michels, the newly appointed Associate Dean of the Zurich campus adds that “the students we have welcomed last week are indeed very motivated and open-minded youngsters, both at undergraduate and graduate level. We have secured teaching agreements with prominent people from both the academic and business community in the greater Zurich area and we are convinced that we will have a positive impact on the future of our students by bringing an excellent combination of theory and practice into the classroom.”

The academic year 2010 – 2011 opened on Friday, October 1, 2010 with the welcoming and registration of new students, and continued on Monday, October 4, 2010 with the start of classes. The campus is located within the Regus Seefeld Center, conveniently situated in the city center along the shores of Lake Zurich and easily accessible with public transportation.

To ensure future development, several new study programs will be introduced in the following months, including an Executive MBA and DBA program, as well as several study abroad programs to welcome exchange students.
