Our partner university in Switzerland is offering a great summer program for Business students. As a Kwantlen student, you can receive a special rate for this program if you apply through Kwantlen. In addition to Business classes, an attractive program will make the participants’ stay an unforgettable experience. The programme features a guided tour of Basel as well as Swiss National day celebrations with fireworks and a special Swiss National day dinner; it includes day field trips to different companies and excursions to cultural and historical sites in the city and beyond.
