School of Business
The UMEF School of Business has both an English and French section and offers programmes that open up exciting career opportunities to its graduates. All courses are taught by expert faculty who have direct experience in the corporate world.
The module-based curriculum familiarises students with the skills necessary to succeed in a business career, blending theory and classroom learning with individual research, and helps students acquire direct professional experience through internships. Our programmes aim to develop students’ understanding of the global business environment, entrepreneurial business development, and business decision-making.
During the classroom study, students acquire and develop analytical and synthesis skills through a range of differentiated learning tasks. Through a combination of case studies, individual and group research assignments, student-led learning and attendance at conferences and seminars, students develop strategic skills needed for effective performance in business.
Each module is evaluated and leads to the acquisition of ECTS credits. At the end of the programme cycle, the student undertakes an internship or writes a dissertation for which he/she is assigned a mentor. The topic of the dissertation bears on one of the subjects covered during the curriculum and, at both the bachelor’s and master’s level, an oral defence of the dissertation is done in front of a jury comprising two or more professors.
The School of Business at SWISS UMEF University has received specialized accreditation for its business programmes through the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE) located at 11374 Strang Line Road in Lenexa, Kansas, USA.
