German term or phrase: nat.oec.HWV
It's a Swiss academic title. Any Swiss people out there who can tell me what it stands for, particularly the HWV?

English translation:Academy of Economic and Administrative Studies
Explanation:
HWV= Höhere Wirtschafts- und Verwaltungsschule

You could say in English: Academy of Economic and Administrative Studies (this would be the most common English designation for such institutions).

"nat.oec" or usually "Dipl.nat.oec." is a diploma in economics and business. I suggest that you leave the German/Latin abbreviation and add the above explanation in brackets.
