The main difference between the Swiss and the Indian education systems is the fact that in Switzerland all the Master’s programs are consecutive postgraduate programs. This means that students need to hold a Bachelor’s degree in the same or in a similar major as their future Master’s program will be.For example: students holding a Bachelor’s degree in Science cannot get the admission for Master’s degree in Business.
The Indian postgraduate studies are the same as the Master’s studies in Switzerland. In India, a Master’s program corresponds to our MBA programs. In Switzerland, MBA programs belong to the executive education. Usually, students need to have work experience (in a management position) and can get admission if they hold a Bachelor’s degree in any field of studies.
In addition to a recognized Bachelor’s degree, students must have a good grade average, GMAT or GRE and a language certificate – this depends on the Master’s program.
