Our programs are offered via distance education.
UBIS was founded in 2006 to create an institution with high academic standards and a supportive environment for students interested in business careers. UBIS is accredited by IACBE, EduQua and ISO 9001. UBIS has a network of international academic partners and an international alumni network.
At UBIS we build student capacities to navigate territories they may be unfamiliar with, to adapt to changing circumstances, to operate in multicultural modes and to implement projects that will have positive impacts in the world. We constantly review and modify our programs and teaching methods to align with current business and societal needs.
Our undergraduate programs put a strong emphasis on individual growth and on developing the knowledge, skills and habits necessary to succeed in the future of work.
Graduate students are oriented to analysis and to research that is applicable to contemporary business issues.
In 2018 UBIS expanded its academic offerings to include a Doctorate of Business Administration.
Student research is encouraged and developed through the Capstone Project at the Bachelor level and a thesis at the Master and Doctorate level. The Master and Doctorate thesis are expected to demonstrate original research and a contribution to new knowledge. The professional expertise of the faculty is crucial for orienting these theses to real-world business issues. Originality of the research is monitored through close mentoring of the theses at predetermined stages of student writing submissions. Faculty is expected to demonstrate research activity through contributions to peer-reviewed journals and participation in Published proceedings of conferences.
Student career prospects are enhanced by high quality academic programs that are constantly aligned with the future of work, by faculty with extensive professional experience, by emphasis on social skills (communication, cooperation, cultural sensitivity) and by the space students are given to develop their own business projects. The prominence given to research (capstone projects and theses) oriented to real-world business issues is a major factor in preparing our students for success. Students have multiple opportunities given by the Geneva environment (e.g., participation in important conferences, internships at businesses, International institutions and NGO’s) and by our international academic partnerships.
UBIS provides excellent student services: career and intership coaching, accommodation, assistance with formalities in Geneva and visa issues.
UBIS has developed its own LMS which all students receive access to once they register. The Campus has a high-speed Wi-Fi network and access for printing.
