When you study with us, you will be joining a leading business school.

HEC Lausanne is consistently ranked among the best business schools worldwide. We are known for offering outstanding programmes in management, economics, and finance as well as for conducting world-class research across a wide range of fields in business.

Our first MBA programme dates back to 1979, and we have been finetuning our curriculum, teaching methods and holistic approach to learning ever since. In 2005, our Executive MBA was born, with a focus in Corporate Finance.

The programme rapidly grew in size and scope, leading us to create a second area of specialisation in Healthcare Management, which further leverages our strengths.

Today, our EMBA offers you a chance to interact with like-minded peers and professors, to gain insight and understanding of business in all its forms, and to prepare yourself for success in our ever-changing world.
