Open Days 2017 – EMBA

Candidates for the EMBA program are welcome to use the occasion to sit in on a regular class day in Thun (Switzerland) to get an insider's view of the quality of coursework, faculty, and facilities of the Rochester-Bern Executive MBA. Depending on the time of the year, different topics and professors can be witnessed. Our doors are open and we are happy to provide an authentic insight into an ordinary day in class.


It is recommended to join at least one session before and one session after lunch in order to experience two different professors. Over lunch, candidates have the opportunity to talk to current students of the program who are happy to share their experiences with them. Also, on some occasions an alumnus of our program will join the day and answer questions.

Since the number of available seats is limited, please sign up once you have chosen a date that suits you. Kindly contact us if you have questions or would like to register for a date that is not yet available on the registration form.
