Bachelor’s Degree Program in Business Administration with a Specialization in Banking and Finance
"The opportunity to study part-time for a Bachelor’s degree at the ZHAW School of Management and Law enabled me to acquire sound theoretical knowledge in the field of finance while at the same time gaining on-the-job experience in banking.
Joining the “Program in English” class strengthened my language skills and made it possible for me to get my Master's degree abroad. I also came to appreciate the added value of the AACSB accreditation as it made the application process easier."
