In collaboration with
The American Institute of Applied Sciences in Switzerland (AUS), located in La Tour-de-Peilz, Switzerland, and Tiffin University (TU), located in Tiffin, state of Ohio, USA, have entered into a partnership, the Dual Degree Program (DDP), allowing AUS students to obtain a dual degree from both institutions.
The partnership offers BSBA and MIBA degrees, each with multiple options. The BSBA degrees would have a specialization, and with the MIBA, the students would also receive a certificate.
In order to receive the dual degrees, students must successfully complete the required AUS and TU courses. Every student enrolled in the DDP will follow the AUS curriculum, aside from the Tiffin courses.
Tiffin University has US Higher Learning Commission accreditation, which is recognized by most ministries of education.
The TU programs are all on-line with video, discussion rooms, readings, and other assignments. For the most part, the students will be in the same class as TU students, thus enabling interaction. There is a possibility for AUS students to study on campus at Tiffin University in Ohio.

Bachelor - Dual Degree Program Requirements

  • All AUS students must complete 135 credit hours to receive their degree, of which 39 credit hours are specializations.
  • The TU courses will be the DDP students’ specialization courses.
  • The TU specialization courses add up to 34 credits, 5 credits less than the specialization requirement. Students will fill the remaining 5 credits with AUS electives.
If a BSBA student successfully completes the DDP, in that case, the student will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) with one of the specialties from AUS and a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in the specialty from TU.

If a MIBA student successfully completes the DDP, the student will graduate with a Master of Science in International Business Administration (MIBA) with one of the specialties from AUS and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in the specialty from TU. They will also receive a Professional Certificate in the specialty. If desired, MIBA students can take just the TU Professional Certificate curriculum separate from the entire TU MBA program.
