Our institutes also do development aid work in countries outside Europe. As a university of applied sciences we are required to provide a two-way interface between these activities and the content of the degree programmes on offer. In particular we do research and consultancy in the following specialist areas of the Lucerne School of Business: financial services, tourism management, online communication and marketing, and general and public management.
Smart-up is the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts programme for aspiring entrepreneurs in which the Lucerne School of Business has the leading role. Lecturers, regional business promotion units, trade and commercial associations and potential investors are all brought together with students who have a business idea they want to put into practice.
