Sacred Heart University Luxembourg Jack Welch College of Business
Sacred Heart’s Jack Welch College of Business has been in Luxembourg for more than two decades offering graduate-level programs tailored to the needs of the working individuals. The MBA, AACSB accredited, is acknowledged by the Luxembourg Ministry of Higher Education and well respected by the business and finance community.
Since 2012, we offer a full-time MBA with internship designed for young graduates from abroad and from Luxembourg. We have students from over forty different countries and our well-qualified faculty and staff give our program a truly international flavor that so many other business schools cannot offer.
Branch of an American Business School
Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT (USA), began offering business education in 1965, just two years after its founding. The University's College of Business was later named after the legendary former Chairman and CEO of the General Electric Company, John F. Welch who continues to provide valuable support. The Luxembourg branch of the College of Business was established in 1991.
As part of his commitment to the University, Mr. Welch has volunteered to be actively involved with the Jack Welch College of Business through ongoing advice and guidance. He will assist the College as it continues its mission of providing students access to a top-quality education and preparation for careers in business. Further, he is providing the largest gift in the University's history to assist students in financial need and to foster faculty development and research.
Closely connected with the business community of Luxembourg
At this business school, we closely work with the corporate community. This is not only reflected in our teaching staff who are accomplished scholars and experienced business executives coming from the US main campus and from Luxembourg but also in our active Board of Regents that consists of CEOs from a number of major companies in Luxembourg.
Conveniently located in the Chamber of Commerce Luxembourg-Kirchberg our facilities are dynamic and provide many online learning and research tools. We also feature a library for students to use as a quiet place to study or project teams to meet for coursework.
The AACSB accreditation and the Grand Ducal Decree
In January 2007, the Jack Welch College of Business earned its accreditation by the AACSB International – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. It joined an elite group to which fewer than 5 percent of business schools worldwide belong. AACSB International is considered the premier global accrediting body for schools that offer undergraduate, master and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.
In August 2007, Sacred Heart University received the Grand Ducal Decree which provides the recognition of our diplomas in Luxembourg.
The Princeton Review includes Sacred Heart University in its guides “Best 379 Colleges - 2015 Edition” and “Best 295 Business Schools - 2015 Edition”.
