EU Business School

EU Business School - Gain an international business perspective

Founded in 1973, EU Business School is a private institution, with four campuses, in Geneva, Barcelona, Montreux and Munich.

A highly ranked, professionally-accredited business school, where courses are taught in English, it provides a truly international setting for acquiring a Bachelor’s, Master’s or MBA degree.

EU Business School offers a joint degree program with Pace University, New York, and Fisher College, Boston, which enables students to gain two undergraduate degrees in less time than it would take to do them consecutively. In addition, EU Business School partners are situated in Kazakhstan, Russia, the UK, Taiwan, the USA, Asia, Thailand and Malaysia, so you can also choose to do a dual degree. The difference between dual and joint degrees is that dual or double degrees expect students to finish two programmes at two universities, whereas joint degree programmes consist of a single curriculum taught by two collaborating universities.

There is a clear emphasis on developing a global perspective at EU Business School, demonstrated by the inter-campus and international exchange programs which attract so many students.

EU Business School‘s international outlook is also reflected in its student population – which currently numbers around 3000 – of 100 plus nationalities, with students and staff speaking 3.5 languages on average.
