Recognised as having one of the most prestigious education systems globally, Switzerland is home to many learning institutions that boast world-class curricula. Thriving in this dynamic pedagogic landscape, the Academy of Business Management (ABMS) lends a modern touch to the country’s tradition of educational excellence — capitalising on state-of-the-art technology in making top-notch learning accessible to more students outside Switzerland.

ABMS is one of the pioneer virtual independent universities in Switzerland offering associate bachelor to doctorate studies in the fields of business administration, media and communication management, e-business and e-marketing, information and communication technology, and international management.

“We are not an online courses provider, but a virtual university. Our students have the flexibility to enter our online platform to attend classes and interact with professors. We offer the Swiss standard of education that employers worldwide consider excellent,” says chief financial officer Dr Habib Al Souleiman.

ABMS invests in continually improving its platform, working with industry experts to offer the best online learning experience to students. ABMS ensures that the interface of its online platform is user-friendly to students and faculty.

On top of learning from skilled and seasoned professors, students have access to ABMS’s library and the libraries of the school’s partner institutions from Britain, Germany and the United States.

While the technological structure of ABMS allows the school to handle big volumes of students per class, it purposely designs small classes with fewer than 30 students. “Even if the technology allows us to handle thousands, we choose not to do it to emphasise student learning. We want to maximise student-professor interactions to encourage the creation of new ideas. This is what ABMS is about,” Al Souleiman says.

ABMS’s focus on business and marketing-related courses make it an ideal partner for companies looking to upskill their employees. The school works with companies worldwide and is open to sharing its Swiss expertise to many more.
