The Executive MBA programme leverages the latest research and specific methodologies to deliver courses developed to match the needs and expectations of managers operating in demanding and dynamic environments and organisations. Oriented toward teaching and promoting responsible business practices, our programme challenges participants to develop new perspectives that require them to consider the impact of their actions on both their organisation and society.
The selection process for the Executive MBA at HEC Lausanne is intensive for a reason. We believe that it is our responsibility to build a dynamic yet heterogeneous class with an appropriate blend of academic backgrounds, professional experiences and career ambitions. Learning, especially in the context of the Executive MBA, is a social process, and classmates as well as professors contribute to participants’ progress.
We believe that an MBA should bring more than an executive qualification. It should be a unique opportunity for participants to take time from their business life to reframe their focus and review their aims. Participants are likely to finally pinpoint the real meaning and professional purpose they have been looking for. Executive coaches and specialists accompany students throughout the programme to further their individual development, improve team effectiveness and enhance their skills.
Designed to fit professional and personal commitments, classes are held every second week. Preparation for classes and completing assignments requires time, but the scope and delivery of the programme allow participants to maintain a balance in their professional and personal life.
