At HEC Lausanne we value diversity, meaning we evaluate each participant’s professional experience, academic achievement and personal qualities.
Each year our participants hail from a wide variety of organisations and have worked around the world. They all have strong motivation, high ambitions and clear career aspirations. They understand how the programme can help them achieve their professional and personal goals.
Our Executive MBA adresses the most pressing issues facing today's business world. You will equip yourself with the skills and tools to reach your highest potential and have a positive impact within your organisation, industry and beyond.
#2 Essential Skills
When you study with us, you get more than an executive qualification. Among the very first to do so in Europe, we have integrated the Essential Skills programme, which includes individual and group coaching, mindfulness workshops and career management series to help you grow throughout your learning journey.
#3 Be Challenged and Inspired by Peers
There is a reason why our selection process is intense. Every year, we aim to build a dynamic and heterogenous class with the perfect balance of academic backgrounds, professional experience and career ambitions. We believe learning should also be a social process and, thanks to the breadth and depth of experience of our participants, you will learn from your colleagues as well as your professors.
# 4 Insightful and Dynamic Teaching
Our professors are all renowned contributors within the international and academic business communities. They hold doctorates from world-leading universities and are known for developing new methodologies and theories, using their research to enrich and strengthen their teaching. Your success is our focus.
#5 Suitability to Your Life
Our programme is designed to meet your needs of balancing your professional, personal and study agendas. Classes are held on our campus every second week, Friday and Saturday all day.
Our dynamic, bold, sometimes unorthodox and often unusual teaching methods have helped us consistently rank as an exciting, best-in-class Executive MBA programme. Our professors develop theories and new methodologies that form the foundations of our academic excellence.
As a public institution, 90% of our professors are tenured to the faculty, and are permanently dedicated to the MBA programme and to the University.
Our curriculum draws on the current research in the field, much of which is conducted by our Executive MBA Faculty.

The people you meet and the experiences you share during your Executive MBA can serve and support you during your career.
More than just an academic programme, our Executive MBA is a vibrant community of people who often network and get together outside of the classroom.
