Higher education in Switzerland:
Switzerland is one of the most innovative countries (Insead 2011, OECD 2012, etc.) in the world.
One reason for this high degree of innovativeness surely lies in Switzerland’s unique education system, the dual-track education system. Another reason is its world-class universities: 12 Universities (2 federal, 10 cantonal), 8 Universities of Applied Sciences, 4 national research centers and 4 competence centers.
