Swiss School of Higher Education


SSHE is a private university based in Switzerland – the heart of Europe’s luxury, finance and hospitality.

Our story began with group of young, dynamic faculty members gathering together to establish a truly unique educational experience that prepares industry professionals, as well as inspires students to apply knowledge and skills, gained during their experience in successful startups and their achievement of career goals in world’s leading companies.

At SSHE, we recognized a need to create industry-ready professionals, who are able to begin work immediately after graduation. To us, this means that our students must possess theoretical, as well as practical knowledge, accustomed to potential recruiters’ demands or serve to jumpstart one’s business.

We strive to become one of the most relevant private international schools with Swiss quality business higher education through the development of competent future leaders and ready to start specialists. We do this through the delivery of a comprehensive and highly practical students’ experience based on:

− entrepreneurial drive,

− teamwork,

− respect for all society stakeholders,

− commitment to excellence,

− responsible attitude towards sustainable development goals.
