The History of the American University in Switzerland

The story of the American University in Switzerland began in 1963, at the creation of the American College of Switzerland, whose academic body had the vision of combining both the effectiveness of American graduate education with the Swiss work ethic.

Building upon this vision, four of the ACS (American College of Switzerland) teachers created the American Graduate School of Business in 1991, which flourished one of the leading international business schools in Switzerland.
To accommodate its growth, AGSB moved from its initial location at the Hotel Excelsior in Montreux in 1991 to La Tour-de-Peilz and finally to its present-day larger campus, still in La Tour-de-Peilz, which can now welcome 400 students.
