MSB - Montreux School of Business

Introduction

WHY THE MONTREUX SCHOOL OF BUSINESS?

Researchers and educators worldwide believe that universities now have to create and sustain new models of learning that prepare students to become successful leaders in the changing global marketplace of the 21st century. At the Montreux School of Business, we have implemented innovative teaching paradigms that foster critical thinking, leadership, team playing, problem-solving, and decision-making as well as develop strong communication skills.

Our interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate programs of study will equip students with both the soft skill and hard skills that most companies say are lacking in today’s university graduates. In other words, we have integrated the humanities, foreign languages, math, science, real-world projects, and sports activities into our business programs to provide students with a different holistic learning experience that develops the whole person.

LOCATION

The Montreux School of Business, a non-denominational private university founded in 2011 by a group of private investors, is located in the French-speaking resort town of Montreux-Territet on the Swiss Riviera. The state-of-the-art facilities of MSB are housed in a beautiful Belle Époque building that first opened its doors as a sumptuous hotel in 1904. It is at this hotel, nestled on the shores of Lac Léman, at the foot of the Swiss Alps, that the Empress of Austria, Elizabeth of Wittelsbach (better known as “Princess Sissy”), often stayed whenever she came to Montreux.

Over the centuries, Montreux, with its micro-climate, majestic snow-capped mountains, terraced vineyards, palm trees, and water sports has attracted many writers and celebritiessuch as Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Ernest Hemingway, Charlie Chaplin, and Freddie Mercury.

Today, tourists still flock to Montreux every year to attend the International Jazz Festival in July or to visit the Château de Chillon, where Lord Byron carved his name on a pillar of the dungeon where the hero of his poem, "The Prisoner of Chillon", was imprisoned. Montreux is also renowned for its fine restaurants, trendy boutiques, lively Christmas Market, and excellent hotel schools.

VISION STATEMENT

To respond to the needs and challenges of the Information Age, the Montreux School of Business wants to provide a university education with a difference by implementing an innovative curriculum (interdisciplinary, integrated, and project-based) that inspires students to develop the hard skills and soft skills they will need to become successful business leaders in the changing marketplace of the 21st century.
