Swiss School of Management (SSM) offers various DBA programs.

  • A two-year international DBA from Switzerland, with workshops across Europe.
  • A pan-African two-year blended learning (online; webinars; workshops) DBA-program centered in Zambia. 
  • A three-year DBA program in partnership with Eastern and Southern African Management Institute (ESAMI), headquartered in Tanzania.
  • Students can apply for a two-year structured program with Round Table Africa scholarship on the topics of competitiveness and entrepreneurship in Africa.

SSM students in these international programs benefit from the unique support offered by StatMind and LGSB. Intensive personal guidance, assistance in all phases of the program, e-learning support and a clear step-wise structure result in very low dropout rates. The responsibility for the program, from admission to graduation, and accreditation, rests with SSM. 

Candidates from Africa can apply for an RTA-scholarship of up to 60% of the normal fee.
