Bringing joy
back to business education

Our Story

At SCA we believe that learning should be associated with a joyful experience and fond memories. Our mission is to reconnect leaders and their teams to the joy of learning.

We do this through a mix of the highest quality pedagogical techniques, delivering them through blended channels. The result is a seamless learning experience that propels leaders to grow & succeed while having fun along the way.

Gone are the days of boring hours in the classroom, today we enable you to study on the go, when you want and where you want.

Our Founders

Swiss Connect Academy was founded by Thierry Hostettler (right) and René Müller (left) in 2018. Two experienced businessmen with entrepreneurial souls, they were both convinced that there was a growing need for companies to apply modern learning techniques for business training. They decided to combine René’s experience with innovative technologies and Thierry’s experience with high quality pedagogy to co-create a platform that could meet the most demanding quality criteria and reconnect leaders to the joy of learning.

For 18 years René Müller was owner and CEO of GMC Software during which time he transformed the business for a printer reseller into a specialist software development company. After he sold the business in 2012 he became president of the Waterkiosk Foundation, a charity that works towards providing clean water to communities in Tanzania. A few years ago he then founded Connect, a secure internal tool for teams and leaders to seamlessly communicate. This platform would become the backbone of Swiss Connect Academy’s digital offering. René lives and works in Switzerland and is married with two adult children.

Thierry Hostettler taught at Collège du Châtelet in Bienne, Switzerland, where he was also Co-Director until he moved to a post at the University of Bern, teaching general didactics and mathematics didactics for 8 years. He then collaborated in the creation of the Haute Ecole Pédagogique BEJUNE where he was a professor in the didactics of mathematics and educational sciences, and where he held the position of vice-dean, a role he continued until founding AB4C Consulting in 2006. This would become the precursor for Swiss Connect Academy, using high quality pedagogical techniques to train businesses in negotiation, leadership & management to clients such as the Swiss Confederation, the Swiss Police Institute and Swatch Group Services. Thierry lives and works in Switzerland and his hobbies include sport, music, neurosciences & oenology.
