BMS

I (20) successfully completed my apprenticeship as a florist last summer. I feel underchallenged in my job and am therefore considering completing the creative BMS. However, I don't want to continue studying afterwards, but rather learn another creative, somewhat demanding profession. My question now is, for which professions will the BMS actually help me? For which professions would this be a good cornerstone? and does it shorten the training time? Many Thanks!

Good day. I, 26 years old, completed my commercial apprenticeship in 2003 and have been working as a fiduciary clerk ever since. My dream job, however, is a zookeeper.

Master of Science in Business Administration

Dear Sir or Madam In 2008, I completed my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (specialization in Accounting & Controlling) at the University of Applied Sciences in Bern. Since then I have been working 100% in controlling. At the moment I am looking for a suitable training or further education. Due to my young age (born in 1987) and my training as a dipl. As a business economist, all further training opportunities are open to me. Unfortunately, I don't have a detailed overview of my options. I would like to complete a prestigious training (career-opening) in the field of accounting and controlling. Since you certainly have more experience and know-how in terms of training than I do, I would like to ask you what you would advise me to do: A degree in Master of Science in Business Administration at a university of applied sciences (but in the field of business development, there there are currently no real alternatives at the FH level and apparently there will be) and afterwards a further education as a dipl. Experts in accounting and controlling or directly with the dipl. Starting an expert and subsequently completing a MAS / EMBA? A question to which you can certainly give me an answer. The whole Bologna system and the introduction of Masters at universities of applied sciences is still relatively new, do you think that these Masters courses will prevail or only lead to a dilution of the title? I am also interested in whether you assume that there will be numerous other courses of study or whether it will be left at that that UAS only offer "special" specializations, while a university always offers accounting and controlling? Thanks for your answer. Kind regards

Shortened KV apprenticeship

Hello, I am currently training to become a retail specialist. As I finish my apprenticeship next summer, I have to slowly decide which path I want to take.

From KV to IT

I, 46 m, completed my KV at the time. At the end of the 80s I got into computer science (training to become a programmer / analyst), but after that I never really worked in computer science. I was / am in the IT part of the HR area for the last 20 years: development and maintenance of personnel information systems. In the beginning still in the effective programming. After that actually "only" responsible for the parameterization of the system, creation of evaluations / statistics using SQL and / or MS-Access and MS-Excel, smaller user training courses, assistance in projects, assistance with the introduction of new sub-applications. I completed and completed the Power User SIZ course 3 years ago. So I'm neither a pure IT specialist nor a pure HR clerk. At the moment I am fed up and I am totally lacking the motivation to continue doing my current job. I would like to reorient myself professionally and finally achieve a diploma so that I can show something that will increase my chances on the job market. But I feel like I'm stuck in a dead end. I fluctuate between training in HR (personal assistant and then possibly HR specialist) with an immediate job change in HR or training in IT (SIZ supporter or ???) with an immediate switch to IT. My salary is another point that increases my dilemma. If I change, I will probably have to expect a lower salary adjustment. Now to my real question: With which training course (other training courses could also be considered) do I have the best chances on the job market at my age and the greater prospect of getting close to my wage level?

EMBA

Good morning A good two years ago, I completed my further education as a federal. dipl.IT specialist business solution. Since the beginning of this year I have been working as Head of Services and Deputy Head of IT. I lead 8 people directly and 4 indirectly. I am 31 years old. The next step is a MAS or EMBA. According to the KLZ or HTW http://www.fh-htwchur.ch/uploads/media/emba_htwchur09_web.pdf, the EMBA is to be classified higher than the MAS, as this can only be achieved after long management experience. I also read that the MAS is tailored more specifically to certain areas, but the EMBA should be viewed more as a general management course. Is this correct? The HTW Chur offers a package with which you can complete an MAS as well as an EMBA in just under 3 semesters. However, these seem to me to be very general and therefore more suitable for KV people? At the ZHAW there are two MAS courses that are tailored to computer science: Business Analysis and Business Informatics http://www.sml.zhaw.ch/de/management/zwi/weiterbildung.html, however, these both last 4 semesters and are more expensive than the HTW package. If I also wanted to achieve an EMBA, I would also have to do, for example, the upgrade "EMBA Strategic Management" at the PHW http://www.phw.info/downloads/#Group250. This would cost me another semester and even more money. What do you recommend? Is my assumption correct that the HTW package is too general and therefore not suitable for computer scientists, or is this an innovative product?

At that time there was no so-called vocational school-leaving certificate. That's why I don't know whether it's equivalent. I have had professional experience since 1990 and have also worked for larger international customers in the field of sales and IT technology. In terms of my profession, I am a certified IT specialist (recognized by The Open Group). Now I would like to round off my 'profile' with an apprenticeship as a BBA or BSC. Most schools offer this in 8 semesters, which is really too long for me with 90-100% workload. But there are also other schools that offer e.g. the BBA in 4 semesters (GSBA). A HF is also already 6 semesters. What would you advise me here, a HF (possibly shortened if possible) or directly to a FH? Thank you very much.

Marketing Manager

Good day! After graduating from the tourism school in Samedan (Swiss certified tourism specialist HF), the question of in-depth training in business administration arises for me (I also have a high school diploma). Choosing the right training facility or the right course is a challenge for me in the jungle of Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Arts, Master of Business Administration, Executive Master of ..., Master of Science, Major Enterpreneurial Mgmt., MAS , DAS, CAS pose a challenge. Training at private institutions is mixed with training at recognized technical colleges and universities. Where can I get an overview of the various courses with regard to requirements, duration, costs, providers, and recognition of the degree? I am also interested in training in law. Are there alternatives to studying law at a university level? Thank you for a detailed answer.

BBA

Hello, career team :-) I am happy to benefit from your free service and would like to benefit from your service: After completing a commercial apprenticeship (graduation 2000), I passed the marketing planner exam in 2004. I have been working for a well-known company since the end of November and this year I was able to take on the position of sales manager (middle management). There are further perspectives for higher positions within the company, but I still lack the academic training that I would like to complete. I am interested in a generalist further education (e.g. Bachelor Business Administration), but did not complete a professional baccalaureate during my training. As I have read, you need a Matura to be admitted to the Bachelor’s degree. Which path or options can you recommend to me so that I meet the admission criteria for the Bachelor's degree? Sincerely yours

Social

Dear Ms. Böhi, Dear Mr. Tobler, I will be 50 years old next month and I lost my last job in December 2002 as a result of reorganization. In the meantime it has been established that I suffer from an electrosmog allergy and therefore no longer in my traditional job as a commercial. Employee / legal secretary can work. After an 'unsuccessful' RAV run, the IV offered me an English course and also promised me to recruit me into their employer pool. I graduated from 'English Proficiency' in 2004 and there was 'nothing more with the promised promise'. I completed another RAV run and have been controlled since October 2006. In response to a renewed request, the IV has now offered to support me in my search for a suitable job for 6 months. But apart from tips there is nothing and when my savings are used up, I should go to the social welfare office. That is the tenor there. A retraining for an occupation that is beneficial to my health is rejected. My health problems are not taken seriously because the relevant statistics are (still) missing. In addition, I have suffered 4 disc herniations in the last few years, which makes suitable work even more difficult. 'Without a PC' is practically impossible ... For almost 7 years now I have desperately tried to find a job that is acceptable to health, but so far it has been hopeless. I provide volunteer visiting services for elderly (dementia) people in old people's and nursing homes in order to give my everyday life a structure. I would be interested in the social area, especially pastoral care. But I don't even know where I would have to 'dock' here, because after completing my training or further education I would like to find a paid job ... Thank you very much for your efforts. Yours sincerely

Bachelor degree

Dear Sir or Madam, I am 23 years old. Z. after a commercial apprenticeship with BM part-time in the 4th of 8 semesters of business administration at a university of applied sciences specializing in business informatics. I have not yet definitely determined my professional goal, but I prefer the (IT) consulting / chemical / pharmaceutical sectors in the CH / EU with an international or global focus. What appeals to me is a subsequent, if possible international, postgraduate course. This means, if possible, at a foreign business school (Europe), geared towards international management or consulting. I have found a few (few) courses in “International Management” for this purpose. I did a little research on the Internet and read that the threshold for a master’s degree is generally rather high, i.e. grade 5.0 upwards, many schools also get a good GMAT result (where can I take the test in Switzerland and how do I prepare myself optimally?) as well as various other competencies (social, methodological) required and "attention to the personality of the applicant". I am now interested in what this grade usually refers to (average of all 4 years, final grade?) And whether it really depends on the grade or whether more attention is paid to the soft skills, personality and motivation. Do I even have a chance for an international (consecutive) master’s degree with a (so far) rather average certificate? If not abroad, then maybe in Switzerland? For after graduation, I have planned a 3 - 4 month language stay (English level C1) - how can I make the most of the rest of this year (except of course GMAT, application for the school (s))? “Simply” continue to work? Is there a website or information point that deals with this entire topic and where I can find detailed information about foreign courses, admission requirements, processes, etc. and where I can find tips, or would individual educational and career advice be the right thing for me? How about the semester fees at foreign schools - in Switzerland (in the canton of residence) I “only” paid a semester fee of just under 1,000 francs. With foreign schools I have seen that - since the CH is neither in the EU nor in the EEA - I would have to pay 10 times as much; or are there agreements with the EU / other countries in this regard? I thank you for your reply in advance. With kind regards

Professional development

I am 27 years old and 3 years ago I graduated from the Higher Technical College for Tourism in Graubünden, specializing in product management. Since I couldn't find a suitable position in my department, I then worked for 3 months as a secretary / assistant at a recruitment agency and now for 2 years as a project support / coordinator at an insurance company. But in order to advance professionally, I think about whether I should do further training (e.g. a bachelor's degree in economics) or whether I should look for a new job and take part-time training (e.g. specialist certificate). I am very unsure what I can expect from myself, in which direction I would like to develop or which training / further education would be useful in order to build on the technical and professional "foundation" laid so far and open up new professional perspectives for me. I thank you in advance for your advice
