European University (EU) is one of the world´s top business schools recognized for the excellence of its students and faculty. EU is accredited by ACBSP (Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs), a CHEA recognized accrediting body. Furthermore, the Geneva and Montreux campuses are also accredited by IACBE (International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education).

Established in 1973, EU has developed a business education that delivers high quality teaching, a competitive learning environment and a network of several campuses in different countries. This broad network encourages students to participate in inter-campus exchanges in the following countries: Spain, Switzerland, Germany, UK, Austria, Turkey, Syria, Kazakhstan, Singapore, Malaysia, China and Taiwan.

EU offers the traditional programs of Bachelor and Master of Business Administration (BBA & MBA), and also the possibility to specialize in 10 different fields of management education such as Business Administration, Communication & Public Relations, Leisure & Tourism Management, Global Banking & Finance, Sports Management, Entrepreneurship and E-Business.

The first goal of EU is to bring the American education model to Europe by relating classroom theory to professional skills. The courses are taught in English using the case study method to prevent business theory from remaining abstract and incomprehensible. The second goal of EU is to internationalize its programs by providing a unique environment. An international perspective is guaranteed by the composition of the faculty and student body.

EU offers education that is pragmatic, student-oriented, flexible and personal. All courses are taught by qualified faculty members with a wealth of practical experience in their fields. EU faculty works with students on an individual basis to create a cooperative and caring learning environment where human values flourish.

EU cooperates with partner universities such as Nichols College in Boston, MA to deliver intensive BBA and MBA studies that allow students to obtain 2 degrees simultaneously from internationally accredited business schools.

Case Study

Name: Pedro Brehm

Programme: EU Portugal MBA Alumnus


I immediately applied my MBA to my subsequent career that has taken in banking, industry, service and retail. I currently have a top management position in a Portuguese media multinational.

The global networking opportunities and the international environment at EU have served me well by allowing me to work efficiently with people from all around the world.

When you see the pace at which today’s global economy is evolving you can appreciate the need for a higher level of versatility from its business schools and, subsequently, their leaders.
