Dual Swiss / US Degrees
UBIS* offers its students an exclusive advantage: the possibility to obtain US degree accreditation with no extra cost for supplementary courses.
The global collaboration between the University of the Potomac** in Washington, D.C., and UBIS provides the foundation for the transfer of UBIS credits to the University of the Potomac and the University of the Potomac credits to UBIS, in such a way that our students can combine courses (On-line or On-ground) from both institutions. At the end of their studies, our students graduate with a degree from Switzerland and another from the USA.
Both institutions share a mission and vision to provide the best educational opportunities for our students.
*UBIS is a registered Institution of Higher Education offering internationally recognized programs designed by following the European Credits Accumulation System (ECTS). To qualify for the program, students must currently be enrolled or seeking enrollment in an undergraduate or graduate UBIS program.
