Welcome adress of the dean


Zurich is the most important center for higher education in Switzerland and one of the world's most popular university sites. Students and researchers at the Faculty of Business, Economics and Informatics of the University of Zurich know what awaits them: one of Europe's leading faculties and a city where the quality of life is among the best in the world.

Business and economics as well as informatics offer fascinating intellectual challenges and open up a wide variety of professional options. Our Faculty researches on new academic theories and methods in business and economics, banking and finance, and informatics. At the same time, we prepare our students for junior and senior positions in economics, academia, industry and politics.

Our Faculty includes lecturers and researchers of excellent, international repute, who follow innovative approaches and use the most up-to-date methods. For us, excellence means being in line with the highest global standards. Our focus is always on socially relevant, ethical research and education.

We foster curious, responsible, critical thinkers by communicating up-to-date insights and uncovering new findings. We offer you the opportunity to develop your full potential in a creative, interdisciplinary environment. Thanks to a close link between research and teaching, you will gain lasting expertise and acquire methodical tools that match up to quality standards around the world. Integration with the largest and most diverse university in Switzerland also broadens your academic horizon. A strong student association and committed alumni organization also contribute to providing our students and graduates access to a broad, supportive network.

Our goal is not only to play a leading role in Switzerland but also to be one of the best faculties in Europe. Through outstanding research achievements, high-ranking appointments, successful academic career development and an intentional implementation of the Bologna Reform, we have already made great strides toward this goal.
