Franklin University Switzerland



“Franklin University Switzerland is an American and private institution of higher education in Europe, and thus it represents a kind of ‘hybrid’ organization. It has introduced new educational principles into the European setting, it is very international by its course offerings and by its student body, and in its teaching it puts heavy emphasis on the general skills and human values that are especially appropriate for the 21st-century world.”

At its April 18, 2013 meeting, the Swiss University Conference [SUK/CUS], the political governing body for higher education in Switzerland, granted Franklin University Switzerland accreditation as a university institution as part of a seven-year review cycle. The evaluation process consisted of an intensive review of self-study documentation and an on-site visit. At the end of the visit, the team of experts presented a brief verbal report, which was followed by a final report and recommendation to the Swiss University Conference, stating that Franklin fulfills all accreditation standards.
