We’ll Change the Way You Think

  • Established in 1994 as the first EMBA programme in Switzerland offering a US degree.
  • Over 50 years of experience in the EMBA market in the US and over 25 years of experience in Switzerland.
  • Part-time curriculum on three continents (in Switzerland, United States, and Asia).
  • Students gain general management knowledge and important leadership skills, learn to apply concepts to their professional life, and develop a truly international mindset.
  • Emphasis on immediate application in the workplace and intense networking with international faculty and experienced participants from all kinds of industries.



The programme begins in February or October and takes 15 months. Courses are held biweekly from February to July on Fridays and Saturdays in Switzerland. From October to February, class takes place Thursday to Saturday every three weeks. The part-time format is designed for executives who do not want to interrupt a successful career and need a schedule which is compatible with their business responsibilities. All courses are taught in English. The General Management programme provides a holistic understanding of all aspects of business and the interconnections between them. Courses are well-integrated and grounded in STEM principles and they address today’s biggest challenges: digitalisation, sustainability and change with a quantitative focus.


Upon graduation, students become members of the RoBe Alumni Leaders Circle, where they can profit from lifelong learning as well as the sharing of experience and knowledge – it is all part of the Rochester-Bern promise: “We’ll change the way you think”.
