The first forms of business education were theoretical seminars. US business schools were the first institutions to incorporate case studies into their curricula and thus link management education to real-life business. The US case study model has been adopted by virtually all business schools around the world.
However, in their MBA programs, business schools fall short of achieving direct application of gained knowledge into companies. There is a separating wall between business schools and companies. On the contrary, the Zurich Elite Business school tears down this wall and connects its program to companies. Additionally, the ZEBS offers unique personal coaching. Carefully selected coaches with extensive professional and personal backgrounds accompany students throughout the program. Their advice and insight help students to unfold their professional potential and to develop their personalities based on their own goals and needs.
In short, ZEBS stands for personalization of business education.
Our vision is to become the most practical and applied Business School worldwide, offering highly customized business education. We also aim to become the 1st Business School worldwide, which manages to close effectively the gap between academia and industry via industry-linked business education and On-the-Job as well as Off-the-Job real-world and job-related skills development programs.
