Why the Swiss School of Management in Rome?

Simply put, a Swiss education carries value.

Our US and EU accredited MBA Degree gives you more than a new line on your résumé. It provides you with a professional gateway to the career you want, anywhere in the world.

Our MBA experience takes you inside issues that matter, and it'll make you reach inside yourself in order to develop and enhance your strengths, skills, and confidence. In every case, class, event, and activity, you will be asked not only to study leadership, but to demonstrate it.

Each day at SSM begins with one question: "What will you do?", because that's the truest way to prepare you for the larger question that matters most, whether it's here or in your career, beyond our campus: "What difference will you make in the world".


Learning in Practice

Students should know, there are special moments that pull everything we have learned into focus. When theory, practice, experience, and talent all come into one sharp point - a decision that shapes a definitive course of action. The question, then, is no longer "what can be done", but "what will I do".

That’s the Swiss way of doing business. Switzerland’s reputation for excellence is due to a highly qualified labor force performing highly skilled work. The source of this reputation is what Switzerland is known for – high-quality education throughout Europe.
