WASHINGTON and GENEVA, May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Potomac College of Washington, DC and University of Business and International Studies (UBIS) of Geneva Switzerland, today announced their five-year International Bachelor/MBA FastTrak Program. The international business degree is designed to provide students with a dynamic and flexible curriculum while studying in two centers of international politics and business: Washington, DC and Geneva, Switzerland. The program also allows students to take online classes from any location in the world.
Both Potomac College and UBIS are structured to deliver an innovative, yet practical educational experience that is ideal for students fresh from their secondary education, undergraduates wanting to transfer credits from another recognized College or University, as well as working adults who are seeking to enhance their careers.
"Academic excellence is the core value of our international focus for the ambitious student anywhere in the world," said Florence Tate, President of Potomac College. "Combining our regionally accredited programs with our international sister college, UBIS, allows us to offer a unique and marketable degree that matches the global mindset demanded by today's students."
"UBIS Geneva was created with a vision of quality in international education and dedication to the students," said Beat-Alexander Jenny, President of UBIS. "We believe students today desire a balance of the traditional lecture/ theoretical learning with career enhancing experiential learning. Our philosophy is to offer students a healthy balance of both and the five-year FastTrak program with Potomac brings together the resources and network necessary to share our values and culture on an international scale."
