BSwiss – Swiss International Business Summer School 2022

From 1 – 12 August, students from all over the world joined the summer school to learn about economic particularities of Switzerland.

After a pandemic-related break of two years, the BSwiss – Swiss International Business Summer School was finally held again onsite in August 2022. 48 students from Europe, Asia and the Americas spent two intensive weeks in Switzerland to learn about different aspects of international competitiveness, innovation and migration.

The programme included visits to companies and institutions including Novartis, F&P Robotics and the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, where the participants gained first-hand insights, as well as in-depth lectures and workshops on various factors that influence the economic competitiveness of companies and countries.

In addition to classroom lectures there were of course plenty of opportunities to explore Switzerland and ist natural heritage, such as field trips to Zurich, Lake Lucerne and Mount Rigi.
