About Swiss School of Management (SSM)

The Swiss School of Management (SSM) is an accredited private institute of higher education founded in the last century in Switzerland. While the head office is still in Switzerland, in 2002 the School moved operations to the eternal city of Rome, Italy where it continues to successfully operate today. With the move to Italy, SSM students benefited from the EU policy which grants students the ability to travel and work without a visa in 27 member countries among the European Union. Still today, Switzerland is not part of the EU. To facilitate recruitment and allow foreign students to be closely followed by tutors and SSM Staff members, the school has opened more learning centers: Dubai (UAE), Bahrain (GCC), Cairo (Egypt) and Brescia (Italy).
The beauty of being in different countries is to have a closer relation to our international students. Since most of our programs can be offered through online learning, students appreciate the ability to be followed by local tutors and staff members. Our learning centers are also official examination centers where candidates can defend their final theses, dissertations, and projects. The aim of an international network is to give students a chance to travel the world, get exposed to new cultures & customs, and continue with their studies under the same academic roof.
