The Swiss School of Management (SSM) is a private institute of higher education belonging to the Swiss Management Academy International. SSM is located on the University of Washington's campus in Rome's historic city center. We have a diverse student body coming from all over the world.
Our Vision and Mission
Why Swiss Education?
The Swiss School of Management originated in Switzerland , however the program moved its campus years ago so students could take advantage of all the wonderful things Rome can offer in terms of its cultural opportunities and metropolitan atmosphere. Rome also provides a more affordable environment for our students from college to grad school. However, the brand name "Swiss School of Management" still remains, but why?
Switzerland's reputation of excellence is due to a highly qualified labor force performing highly skilled work. The source of this reputation is what Switzerland is known for - high quality education throughout Europe.
