Research in our DNA
Recognized as one of Europe’s foremost teaching and research centers in the fields of management and economics, HEC Lausanne stands out for the importance it attaches to the quality of its research for more than a century.
Aimed to train the leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow, as well as to provide sound advice to organizations and policy makers, research is central to all activities of the Faculty, starting from its origins with the two famous economists, Léon Walras and Vilfredo Pareto.
