About us

Rochester-Bern Executive Programs (RoBe) is the leading boutique business school in Switzerland. We inspire, develop and connect professionals, executives and board members who want to make a lasting impact in their organizations.

RoBe is a foundation and is based on a long-standing collaboration between the Simon Business School at the University of Rochester (NY, USA) and the University of Bern. It has been offering executive education programs since 1995, such as the renowned Rochester-Bern Executive MBA or various CAS in General Management for SMEs (e.g. board members or specialists and managers). It also organizes company-specific seminars and programs. Its clientele includes companies such as SBB, Berner Kantonalbank and the Insel Group. Simon Business School has been accredited by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International) since 1966 and has achieved good rankings in business schools for years (e.g. number 2 in the world in Economics according to the Financial Times Specialty Rankings 2020).
