USI Università della Svizzera italiana

As part of the federal system of higher education, USI Università della Svizzera italiana is the leading Swiss university in the field of communication.

A multinational faculty of more than 30 professors from renowned institutions around the world ensures the program's academic excellence and its international orientation. The program cooperates with the UCLA Anderson School of Management and is held in conjunction with Singapore Management University giving participants a unique opportunity to study side by side with Asian colleagues.

.HarbourClub. is a forum for corporate leaders who no longer feel at home in the traditional association structure of the communication sector: people for whom the designation spokesperson, PR manager, sponsoring officer or advertising director is insufficiently descriptive because they bear responsibility for the entire communication of an enterprise. The club was founded in 2000 at the Harbour House in Zurich – hence our name. The number of members is limited to 100. Members are active Chief Communications Officers (CCO) of Swiss organizations and at maximum ten persons who play crucial roles in the Swiss communications landscape.
