Mission and Values of the FHNW School of Business

Our values help us to fulfill our mission.

The FHNW School of Business trains responsible leaders for business as well as society. It uses attractive methods of learning, achieves a high level of practical relevance, and has a strong international network. As a result, the School is well positioned to support Swiss companies (whether large or small) that are dependent on exports and also strongly networked. Our teaching, research, and consulting activities are thus important contributors to overcoming both current and future challenges.

We promote a culture of dialogue, open communication, and constructive conflict management. The participation of staff members and students is of great importance to us in this regard.

We are mindful of the work-life balance of our students and staff members and offer attractive employment conditions, as well as a large number of structural options with regard to both work content and individual development opportunities.
