International University of Switzerland?
 
Does anyone know anything about the International University of Switzerland (http://www.iuswitzerland.ch/) located in Zürich?

I would be interested in any information about this school. Apparently, it's relatively new.

Thanks.

I've personally not heard of this school before and I find it strange that a school would have obvious errors like:

"CAMPUS BLOG | [an error occurred while processing this directive] READ MORE"

"LATEST NEWS | [an error occurred while processing this directive] READ MORE"

on their mainpage. According to their own propaganda (with only three articles pertaining to Zurich) they started it in 2009: http://news.uibs.org/?p=176
Can't find much but one odd picture of the 'president' (note, not a prof, but a president) and nothing much on the "faculty" ( http://www.zurich.uibs.org/about_faculty_members.html) of 4 either...


Dunno, looks kinda fishy to me and I would not be surprised if the diplomas they might hand out are not accredited anywhere....

Better try a more established university if you want your time and money to count for something.

The main Swiss universities are well known throughout the world,

if you have the time going to one is well worth it.

I want to do my PhD but many of the famous/well established Universities require a full time commitment.

I was looking at some and they state, ''member affiliations'' to accreditation bodies (i.e. to AACSB etc..). Be careful, you want them to say ''certified'' or accredited'' not membership..

For a PhD one generally works for a company (which can include the university itself) for 60%+ and on top of that one works the rest of the time on the thesis one is writing. Note that 'rest' here is typically another 80% if you count a 50 hour week.... at least if you are getting a real PhD ;)
