We know that researching the right MBA is a time-consuming and serious task, not entered into lightly.


The MBA programme at the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Lausanne (HEC Lausanne) has been running for over 35 years, and the Executive MBA programme has run for over a decade. This internationally recognised Executive MBA offers professionals the chance to transform their career and ambitions, whilst specialising in Healthcare Management or Corporate Finance.

We defend our unique teaching methods, as we know the quality of our programme is unrivalled: we are ranked among the best top 100 Executive MBAs worldwide (70th in the 2017 Financial Times Ranking) and are accredited by EQUIS and AMBA.

Our Vision. Your Experience

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. Participants select a special focus in Healthcare Management or Corporate Finance – two of Switzerland’s most dynamic industries. Being located in French-speaking Switzerland, home to the headquarters of many international corporations, the United Nations, a strong finance industry, and a massive life science hub, means we attract a particularly rich and unique student mix of participants currently working in global corporations, and who, like you, are highly motivated to learn and bring their skills to the classroom.

You are likely to finally pinpoint the professional objectives and personal purpose you have been seeking!
