Special conditions of admission

University admission qualifications from EU countries are recognised as being equivalent to Swiss qualifications if the applicant can provide evidence of previous commercial work experience. Candidates with a foreign-language university admission qualification must also demonstrate proficiency in German to level C1.

 

Other educational background

Graduates of other courses can be accepted if they have an equivalent academic and professional background. Equivalence is decided by the department head on a case-by-case basis. Candidates may be required to provide evidence of further academic achievements and/or professional experience in order to be admitted onto the course.

 

After successfully completing a selected HF course, graduates can take the entrance exam for the Bachelor in Business Information Technology (admission to the main course). A final grade of 5.0 or higher is required.

Candidates may take the entrance exam for the Bachelor in Business Information Technology if they have the following diploma from a higher technical college:

  • HF Banking & Finance (Kaderschule SG, BVS, Akademie SG)
  • HF Wirtschaft (Kaderschule SG, BVS, Akademie SG)
