Swiss Study Centre escorts you To a promising career

Staff Reporter

High-Tech and world class education is a must at present in the highly competitive job market and the effect of globalization is highly reflected in job market as well hence many of our private organizations have to appoint executives from other countries because we lack such efficient individuals. In this circumstance, Swiss Study Centre has come forward to aid those individuals who think of entering the international arena to get a job in both inshore and offshore leading corporations.

The University of Business and Finance Switzerland (UBFS), one of the leading universities in Switzerland and in the entire European continent, has made Swiss Study Centre its 'direct admission office' in Bangladesh and it has got all official authentication from UBFS in order to promote Swiss education in Bangladesh.

Consequently to provide Bangladeshi students with immense knowledge in Finance, International management and Hospitality management, UBFS has opened a new chapter with Swiss Study Centre in Dhaka on 30 July 2007 by the Honorable President of UBFS, Mr. André Schaffner accompanied by the CEO of Swiss Study Centre, Mr. Abu Zafar Fazlea Rabby. Thus Swiss Study Centre has opened the gateway to make Bangladeshi students future international business leaders.

Alfred Bernhard Nobel, born October 21, 1833 in Stockholm, Sweden, was a Swedish chemist, engineer, innovator, armaments manufacturer and the inventor of dynamite. He owned Bofors, a major armaments manufacturer, which he had redirected from its previous role as an iron and steel mill. In his last will, he used his enormous fortune to institute the Nobel Prizes.

The erroneous publication in 1888 of a premature obituary of Nobel by a French newspaper, condemning him for his invention of dynamite, is said to have brought about his decision to leave a better legacy after his death. The obituary stated Le marchand de la mort est mort ("The merchant of death is dead") and went on to say, "Dr. Alfred Nobel, who became rich by finding ways to kill more people faster than ever before, died yesterday." On November 27, 1895, at the Swedish-Norwegian Club in Paris, Nobel signed his last will and testament and set aside the bulk of his estate to establish the Nobel Prizes, to be awarded annually without distinction of nationality. He died of a stroke on December 10, 1896 at Sanremo, Italy. He left 31 million kronor (equivalent to 103,931,888 USD now) to fund the prizes. Today, the Nobel Prizes are regarded as the highest international recognition for people who have major contributions in the fields of Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, Peace and Economics.
