The ZHAW School of Management and Law advises companies and organizations on all aspects of business administration. Among other things, we conduct market surveys for them, analyze their IT processes, and support them in handling challenging organizational and leadership tasks. Our team of experts combines extensive practical experience, expertise, and methodological competence. In our efforts to find effective solutions, we cross both international and interdisciplinary boundaries, true to our motto: “Building Competence. Crossing Borders.” To this end, we draw on the competencies of other ZHAW departments, our corporate partners, and over 140 partner universities worldwide.
