The Executive Master of Business Administration program (EMBA) is the link between your current professional experience and your future. Our 1.5-year EMBA program in Switzerland  provides you with a solid business foundation, allowing you to perform effectively in all areas of any organization.

When designing our EMBA program, we took into consideration the input of 30 international CEOs and HR-directors on the top 3 qualities of future leaders.

The result is a program that combines essential soft and hard skills that shape you into a self-aware, responsible management professional and gives you the foundation to grow as a leader.

Leadership skills

We believe that success is determined by good leader who possess certain leadership characteristics. We take leadership skills as seriously as subject knowledge and have integrated personal leadership modules into the program, representing 40% of our EMBA foundation courses. Leadership development is first and foremost about personal development.

Our way of applying this is by integrating the top 3 requirements as defined by the CEOs who were in collaboration with the program design:

  1. Ability to lead and be flexible to change
  2. Be an authentic communicator
  3. Ability to easily adapt to different perspectives

The program is designed to develop these three competences.
