a university

for ambitious


Welcome to SSHE!

SSHE is a private university based in Switzerland – the heart of Europe’s luxury, finance and hospitality.

Our story began with group of young, dynamic faculty members gathering together to establish a truly unique educational experience that prepares industry professionals, as well as inspires students to apply knowledge and skills, gained during their experience in successful startups and their achievement of career goals in world’s leading companies.

At SSHE, we recognized a need to create industry-ready professionals, who are able to begin work immediately after graduation. To us, this means that our students must possess theoretical, as well as practical knowledge, accustomed to potential recruiters’ demands or serve to jumpstart one’s business.

That’s how our story began. Where will your story start?

Vlasenko Mikhail
Business administration, 2017

I believe, that in our live we always have two options, we can choose to do NOTHING, and let live guide us, OR We can choose to do SOMETHING about it, and guide our live. For me, choosing to study at Swiss School of Higher Education is one of the best decisions to influence the outcome of my live!

I really enjoyed having so much support from everyone at SSHE, the administration, who provide the student with all help; Professors, who teach us with passion, and give us their knowledge, the director Mariam, who was working hard to make it all happen!

My wish for the school, is to become bigger and bigger, so that more new students could catch their dreams!

I had a great year at SSHE, full of studies, new connections, and, of course, unforgettable experience. There are three things that I enjoyed especially – the approach of Mariam Gamurzieva, the director, who made a huge effort to make our business school valuable and family-oriented; professional and friendly attitude of administration; and experienced professors who gave us incremental knowledge and experience during classes and practical hours at SSHE.
