The BSL Education Ecosystem

In our Education Ecosystem, learners are doers and doers are learners. Our students have numerous opportunities to research and to learn, or to apply what they have learned in the real life.

BSL Doctoral School

At Business School Lausanne, we not only teach Business Administration; we create Business Administration practice and knowledge!

Business Administration studies need to reinvent themselves. It is about WHAT is taught in Business, as well as HOW it is taught.

The world of Business is changing fast, the needs of businesses are changing fast.

Therefore, the corpus of Business Administration practices and the knowledge in Business Administration need to evolve.

At BSL, we contribute to this transformation of Business Administration studies with our Doctoral Program in Business administration (DBA).

Our doctoral students work on Business transformation. The look at transforming the way Business is done in their respective industries, creating academic knowledge at the same time.

Thus, the Doctoral School of BSL, our Research Center in Business Administration, follows a double objective of creating new best practices and new academic knowledge in how to effectively develop, run and transform a business.

Our Doctoral Thesis Supervisors are teaching at all levels, from UGG to Executive Education. The findings and knowledge acquired by our researchers are shared with our students in classrooms.

Experiential Learning

Experiential Learning is a specific form of learning by doing. At BSL, we define it as “Learning by doing in the real world.”

We provide students various opportunities to learn as they engage in the real world. Internships, entrepreneurial projects, applied business project, consulting are some of the forms of these opportunities.

To reflect the learning dimension of real-life experiences, students earn credits that make for the successful completion of their degrees.

Incub & Co

Incub & Co has been founded by some BSL Alumni and works in close cooperation with BSL to offer various services to students or graduates who want to start their own company.

BSL students can choose an entrepreneurial project as Diploma project, either at Bachelor, Master or MBA level. Some of BSL students thus naturally work with Incub & Co.
