HEC Lausanne, the Business and Economics Faculty of the University of Lausanne, is one of the leading faculties of management and economics in Switzerland, and is ranked among the best institutions in the world for the quality of its teaching and cutting-edge research. It also benefits from the attractiveness and economic dynamism of the Lake Geneva region, while being located in an exceptional setting on the shores of Lake Geneva. A pioneer since 1911, the Faculty trains leaders, executives and top researchers by embodying and instilling rigour, integrity, collaboration and entrepreneurship.

The many student associations affiliated to the Faculty also organise activities to help you develop professionally.

With its International Relations and Mobility Service, which has developed a large number of international agreements, and its Career Centre, the Faculty helps you enter professional life by offering international exchange programmes, career advice and internships and jobs.
