The three strategic pillars of AUS are based on the following strategic goals:
- Knowledge: AUS graduates have theoretical, professional, and applied-research competencies that can be applied in professional business fields in our 21st-century knowledge-based society.
- Tools: AUS graduates learn innovative tools to make an economic, social, and sustainable impact locally in the Canton of Vaud and internationally.
- Training: AUS graduates are trained in a supportive learning environment by highly qualified faculty who are engaged in significant professional and research activities.
While our three strategic pillars of ‘Knowledge”, “Tools”, and “Training” continue to drive us forward, greater weight is given to applied research and sustainable development.
A key strategic goal is to successfully offer students niche programs and specialization options as competitive differentiators. The dual degree program partnership with Tiffin University in Ohio
, USA enters its second year with over 15 students enrolled, a major increase from the previous year. The Aviation Management specialization
offered at the Master level has the attention of several local businesses and organizations, such as Geneva and Sion Airports, thanks to our excellent new faculty members and continued IATA partnership.
