The SBS Flex MBA is a part-time program developed to provide students with a special set of skills, and expertise in the field of International Management. In today’s dynamic marketplace, successful working professionals must be innovative and entrepreneurial, combining a general knowledge of business functions with specific skills in their area of responsibility. The Flex MBA program allows students to keep their full-time job while studying and lets them apply the knowledge directly in the workplace.

Our Flex MBA consists of 15 modules taking place over 15 months. Classes will take place one weekend every month (Friday to Sunday).

An emphasis on teamwork and study groups is an essential part of the Flex MBA experience to prepare our students for future career prospects. A mix of techniques focused strongly on the case study methodology, allows students to work in interdisciplinary groups and in turn, discuss, debate, and solve real-life business problems. A mix of additional methods is used to draw on the participants’ own professional experience, creating an interactive learning environment, and promoting an exchange of ideas between students and faculty.

Personal development and career coaching are one of the essential elements of the program. Special tools such as personal coaching sessions, MBA-Exchange, and other tools are used on an individual basis. The final degree will be awarded by SBS Swiss Business School upon completion of the MBA program.
