The University of Applied Sciences and Arts Lucerne is the largest educational institution in Switzerland with around 7000 students. The HSLU offers a broad range of disciplines from technical sciences, business, social sciences and arts. Interdisciplinary and practice oriented studies are an important target at HSLU and thus make them an ideal partner institution for CBS.

Practice orientation, especially in the Business studies areas, is combined with recent scientific research, which you will also be able to engage with through your Master theses.

Study in Lucerne

Lucerne is located in Central Switzerland, which is at the same time an important region for sciences. Major international enterprises from industrial, aircraft construction, raw material extraction, and of course tourism sectors have their base in this region.

Its location in between mountains and Lake Lucerne guarantees for high quality of living, with an endless variety of leisure opportunities and numerous cultural events. Rents are lower than in the larger cities. At the same time you can easily reach cities like Zurich, Basel and Berne.

The HSLU campus is centrally located right next to the central station, and only a short walk away from the medieval historic old-town, the lake as well as  the world-famous Chapel Bridge. Students from across the world add an international flair to the campus.

Get ready for an exciting and challenging Double Degree Programme, but also a unique and inspiring study abroad experience. Meet Double Degree and exchange students from Switzerland on the CBS campus in order to get first hand information on Lucerne.
