American University in Switzerland

Switzerland - La Tour-de-Peilz

The American University in Switzerland is one of Switzerland’s leading institutions of higher learning. It is situated in La Tour-de-Peilz on the beautiful shores of Lake Geneva, which is close to the Olympic Capital Lausanne and the city of Geneva, the center for diplomacy. Throughout its 30-year history, AUS has prepared international business students with the knowledge, tools, and training of today to be positive contributors to the general management of any business organization of tomorrow.

AUS’ recent partnership with the Tiffin University in Ohio, United States, allows AUS students to obtain a dual degree in Athletic Administration, International Business, Sports Marketing, and other specializations from both institutions.

By integrating the hard and soft skills, students will need to be competitive in the coming decades; AUS is leading the charge in focusing on skills for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). Through experiential and student-centered learning, AUS exposes its students to real life scenarios so they can develop the necessary skills to thrive.

All courses are taught in English to small dynamic cohorts by leading business visionaries who bring extensive experience in successful business ventures, giving them the in-depth background to create a lively and interactive classroom. Leveraging their networks, AUS professors invite industry leaders to guest lecture and speak, bringing additional practical experience and expertise to the university.

AUS’ faculty-to-student ratio is roughly 1:7, facilitating a deeper working relationship between students and professors. The small class size, approximately twenty students per class, provides students with optimum personal interaction, allowing professors to mentor and advisor a larger number of students. AUS faculty develops their students' 4IR skills through learning by doing and application, coupled with feedback and coaching.
