Business school information
The École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is a research institute and university in Lausanne, Switzerland, that specializes in natural sciences and engineering. It is one of the two Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology, and it has three main missions: education, research and technology transfer at the highest international level. The roots of modern-day EPFL can be traced back to the foundation of a private school under the name École spéciale de Lausanne in 1853 at the initiative of Lois Rivier, a graduate of the École Centrale Paris and John Gay, the then professor and rector of the Académie de Lausanne.
Based in Switzerland, at the forefront of global innovation, EPFL's EMBA is the longest running European EMBA focused on technology and innovation management. To drive growth in an increasingly fastchanging and interconnected world, we are convinced that leaders must harness innovation while speaking the language of both business and technology. The teaching is based on a concrete, pragmatic approach with extensive use of case studies, fostering class participation and group work. The practical part of the program consists of an innovative project (minimum of 500 hours) of strategic importance in a company.
