Abstract: In the 1990s, Switzerland faced one of the most economically difficult times since the Second World War. The economy suffered and unemployment rose as major manufacturing companies closed their doors. In the city of Zurich, for example, about 10 percent of jobs disappeared within one year. It became clear that the service economy would need a better-educated workforce in the future. This was the basis on which Switzerland decided to introduce a new type of university that combines scientific education and practical job experience, the Universitiy of Applied Sciences (UAS).
