About the MBA degree in Switzerland: Here too, the study program you have chosen (regardless of whether you are an MBA or master) should belong to a generally recognized institution. And of course a good reputation is also important.

In general, there are around 30 universities, technical colleges and business schools in Switzerland that offer over 60 MBA and master’s degree programs.
