An international focus with an attractive home base

While the programme's DNA is truly international, its roots are local. Many students, alumni and lecturers live close to the FNHW campuses in Basel, Brugg-Windisch and Olten. This enables you to meet the teaching staff and your peers in person regularly.

You can always visit them on campus or join one of their MBA community events. Beyond that, Swiss-International MBA FHNW students and alumni in the region organise regular gatherings to study, have a good time and build friendships for life. Connect with the international MBA community from FHNW today!
