The Story of SMC

SMC was founded to spark a progressive new spirit in business education.

The format was clear: distance learning.

Our story began as a crazy idea in the beginning of this century. Without history, without recognition, without reputation, but with a ton of spirit, commitment, and drive a team of passionate game changers started experimenting with pure online courses in various formats and levels. Fast forward, we developed degree programs, which were embraced by established Universities. We will never forget Student #1 – a finance professional from Argentina thousands of kilometers away, who enrolled in Europe’s first online Doctorate of Business Administration program.

Over the years we evolved into SMC Education Group - Europe’s first government-accredited online business school.
