Exciting News: Rebranding to

"International Academy in Switzerland"

Dear Partners and Students,

After careful consideration and thorough evaluation of our institution's trajectory, we are thrilled to announce a pivotal change: the renaming of our institution to the International Academy in Switzerland, effective from 2025 onward.

This decision stems from several key developments that have shaped our institution's identity and aspirations:

Enhanced Accreditation: Over the past year, we have dedicated considerable effort and resources to elevating our standards and ensuring unparalleled quality in education. We are proud to inform you that our efforts have borne fruit, as we have successfully secured four new accreditations in 2024. These accreditations are not merely endorsements; they are bestowed upon us by governmental bodies, including their Ministry of Education, signifying the highest level of recognition and validation of our academic programs and institutional practices. This achievement is a testament to the relentless commitment of our faculty, staff, and students toward excellence. What are our current Quality Standards:

  1. Institutional Accreditation: BSKG under the Ministry of Education and Science of KG, EAEU Eurasian Economic Union

  2. Institutional Accreditation: EDU Intergovernmental Organization founded by the Ministry of Education in PW as a framework with UNESCO United Nations,

  3. Programmatic Accreditation: ECLBS European Council of Leading Business Schools, a distinguished quality label endorsed by 10 national accreditation bodies,

  4. Institutional Accreditation: ASIC Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities, UK government-approved accreditation body.

  5. And more...

Focus on Quality: Since our establishment in 2013, the International Academy has undergone various phases of growth and evolution. Under the leadership of different deans, each contributed their utmost to our institution's advancement. However, it is during my tenure as the dean over the past four years that we have undertaken a deliberate shift in focus. We have prioritized a singular goal: quality. Despite the potential short-term trade-offs, we steadfastly believe that investing in quality education is paramount. This unwavering dedication to excellence has become the cornerstone of our institution's ethos.

While the decision to rebrand may seem drastic, we are confident that it aligns seamlessly with our overarching vision and objectives.

In the coming months, we will embark on a comprehensive rebranding process, which will entail updates to our website, marketing materials, and official communications. We encourage you to stay tuned for further updates and announcements as we transition seamlessly to our new identity.

Thank you for being an integral part of the International Academy community. Together, we are poised to achieve new heights of excellence and impact in the realm of higher education.

Warm regards,

Derya A. Briand Mlaw, LLM UNIL
