Question about Master Degree in ZHAW (English) and career path

Hi all,

I would like know if anybody here have studied in ZHAW(Zurich Hochschule) for Master programs in English? Does it help to get a good career path in Switzerland?

I am from Hong Kong (but EU citizen) and I have a bachelor degree in Switzerland in Hospitality and Tourism Management. I have been working for luxury sales for 4 years now and recently thinking about studying a master degree in Marketing at ZHAW. I will be 26 next year. I really hope I can redirect my career (before I am getting too old for that), since B to C sales job is not what I want to do for life.

On the other hand, I will be getting my C permit in the end of 2016. I wonder if my permit will be affected by quitting my job for studies. Does anyone knows anything about that?

Very much appreciate for your kind help!

Cheers,

C.

A few of my former classmates from Uni Zurich who failed examinations transferred or started over at the ZHAW (most of them in economics). Think most of the economics Masters are offered in English according to their study offer page.

My friends seemed very happy with the courses. One friend works at a bank and another at an insurance company.. I would say it's a well respected institution. But I will also say it is what you make of it. All the best for your application.

Dear Lorena,

Thank you very much for your information and encouragement! It really helps me a lot. May I know the ZHAW graduates who get a job in bank and insurance company are Swiss or other nations? I have a concern that Foreigners graduates does not have the same chance as the locals.

However, i would love to try. This is probably my only way out!

Cheers,

C

ZHAW? Isn't that the school which rejected Albert Einstein?

Once you have your C permit you can study or work anywhere. If you are planning to start before you get a C permit it depends on what visa/permit you are on now.
