Foundation: 1997

Mission: The majority of our students come from the local territory, and, on completion if their programmes, they possess professional skill sets, are highly qualified and immediately operational, able to move around regional, national and international contexts with great flexibility. Our research projects provide solutions that are innovative and rapidly applicable, can make local institutions, organisations and businesses more competitive, and improve individual quality of life.

Vision: We aim to be a vocational, multidisciplinary, innovative and Latin-culture university, prominent in Switzerland, a network-creation leader, both in Switzerland and internationally, in the academic, business and political-institutional contexts.
