About us

Dear Interested Party

ipso! is a success story stretching back for over 145 years as our very first school was founded in Basel back in 1876. Then as now, the entrepreneurial spirit and the individual commitment of the owners have supported this. Together with over 120 employees and almost 1,000 teaching staff and lecturers, we create the optimal conditions for over 5,000 students, trainees and pupils who wish to realise their potential and therefore put their trust in us.

Our group includes 8 strong and independently renowned training brands. Today our training programme is conducted at 11 German-speaking locations and increasingly online and currently consists of over 200 different products in the fields of Technology and IT, Business and Management, Exercise and Health, Commerce and Languages and Vocational and Adult Education as well as at the preschool and primary school stages. Our range of training which extends from kindergarten to university degrees, is therefore one of the most varied and comprehensive in the Swiss private education and training sector.

A warm welcome to ipso!

Delegate of the Board of Directors
