“This presentation of the “Swiss Economic model” would remain incomplete without a particular mention of our prestigious universities, of our well-structured education system and our willingness to cooperate on international research and innovation. Switzerland's higher education environment, with its cantonal universities and the Federal Institutes of Technology, its universities of applied sciences and its universities of teacher education, offers a comprehensive and diverse range of high-quality institutions. Our universities achieve results that are highly regarded internationally and make certainly a significant contribution to the country's economic, cultural and social development and success. Young people and adults can follow in Switzerland either a vocational or an academic educational path, depending on their skills and talents. The education system is characterized by a high degree of permeability both within and between the vocational and academic strands. Companies benefit from highly qualified specialists and managers along the whole value chain”.
