During the yearlong MSIM program, students will experience mentorship from professors on the FUS campus, collaborate with international institutions and professionals, and engage in independent projects to enrich their learning journey and interdisciplinary experience. Check out the highlights below.


Franklin University Switzerland, in collaboration with Deloitte, orchestrated a dynamic one-day Think Tank focusing on the fusion of business acumen and the fashion industry. Participants engaged in a pivotal “Work Place” crash course and delved into contemporary developments in fashion through immersive case studies. The forum, filled with budding professionals, sought insights and tips on succeeding in the business realm. The day concluded with a noteworthy award ceremony celebrating students' accomplishments, followed by a networking apero, fostering connections and dialogues amongst attendees. This initiative highlighted the continuous endeavor of both entities in fostering learning and professional growth.



In February The Division of Business and Economics of Franklin University Switzerland organized and hosted the first edition of a Hackathon around the topics of Digital Transformation and Sustainability with  H-Farm, the largest and one of the most important innovation hubs in Europe.

Graduate students of MSIM together with the International Management senior undergraduate class welcomed H-Farm and their Master’s students in Digital Entrepreneurship to Lugano for a 3-day immersive interaction and collaborative experience, working together in groups and challenging themselves on the topic of NFTs.  


5G Joint Innovation Center

As part of the “Digitalization and the Future of Business” MSIM course, students visited the 5G Joint Innovation Center of Sunrise Switzerland and Huawei in Zurich.

They had the chance to see some innovative applications of 5G in various business sectors, from farming and agriculture to health and smart energy, and learned how this technology can revolutionize them. The visit was led by Alexander Lehrmann, Director of Innovation and Development at Sunrise, with whom the students had the chance to connect and deepen their knowledge of the new applications of 5G technology.

Post fossil Cities Simulation Game

Franklin students demonstrated their commitment to mitigating climate change by participating in a post-fossil cities simulation game.

Organized by the Division of Business and Economics - Professor Schultz and Professor Miniero - the event provided students with a unique opportunity to explore what it takes to transition toward climate-neutral cities. The simulation game was facilitated by Dr. Markus Ulrich and proved to be a thrilling experience for everyone involved!
