     “From the first day I visited UBIS and had a meeting with the Provost, I realised it was the place to go and the program to enrol. I was impressed by the conversation we had about the history of international cooperation for which later I was interested to attend his classes.I feel privileged to be among the students enrolled in the DBA program at the University of Business and International Studies in Geneva, Switzerland. As a Diplomat with busy meeting schedules from one multilateral organisation to the other, there wouldn’t be other place better than UBIS to undertake my DBA program as I needed a flexible arrangement.”
