Studying at the Business School Lausanne

Business School Lausanne (BSL), founded in 1987, counts over 1750 alumni and delivers learning programs that address the fundamental changes of working in the 21st Century.

Students from sixty nationalities with diverse backgrounds join our experienced faculty in a co-creative approach to learning, focusing on topics as broad as leadership, entrepreneurship, systems thinking, Big-Data and machine learning, economics and business-driven sustainability. Our faculty is comprised of individuals who have run successful businesses and have practically applied what they teach in real world situations, ensuring our students are taught the most cutting-edge business thinking.

BSL is committed to creating a personalized and focused learning experience for each of our students. This is why we insist on keeping our classes small. So each student has the opportunity to truly participate in seeking new ideas for measuring the role and impact of business in today’s society. We endeavor to create a space where all of our students, professors, staff, researchers, and stakeholders, feel free to come together to ask courageous questions and to maximize solutions through values that matter; because connection is key to tackling issues for the common good.

We teach our students big picture thinking, so they are able to develop innovative cross-sector solutions, which we believe will help them to realize their true potential in whatever avenue of business they choose to pursue.
This includes furthering research in early detection of Global Mega Trends and their impact on the business landscape, best-in-class capabilities to enable Business Transformation and the development of the Entrepreneurial Mindset and Innovative Business Skills.
