Learning with SIBS

Dramatically different

The SIBS Graduate Degree in Accounting takes a radically different approach to provide a deep mastery based degree of the highest Swiss standard, with a self-paced and truly flexible study plan that fits into your schedule.

Truly flexible

Most online degrees claim to be flexible but still have fixed dates by which you have to study material and write tests.

This means you are forced to study according to a schedule which may not match the time you have available, your work commitments, and the time you need to fully understand the material. How often have you had to write a test when you knew you weren’t fully prepared!

SIBS is different. Our degrees are genuinely flexible. You start the degree at any time during the year, study entirely at your own pace based on your needs, and finish the degree in anytime between 1 and 3 years. You never write a test or exam until you are confident you have covered the material.


Most universities require you to pay for every year you study. At SIBS you pay only for the degree, not the length of time it takes to complete. That means that you pay only a single flat fee irrespective of how long it takes you to complete studying towards the degree.

SIBS provides extensive financial support, with more than half of our students receiving fee assistance. You can easily request fee assistance in your application.

Deep mastery based learning

SIBS uses a mastery based approach drawing on the case method originally developed at Harvard University.

With the mastery based approach you achieve deep learning working through lectures and case studies drawn from past exam questions and real world business problems. You complete and upload the casework at your own pace and then work through detailed feedback so you develop a rich understanding of the topics.

At SIBS you are never forced to write tests or exams until you feel confident that you have truly understood and mastered the material.
