Within the logic of excellence in training, Western Switzerland has a high number of institutes and schools preparing students for a variety of post graduate and Masters degrees.
Among these degree courses, several hold places of choice in world classifications. For Masters in Business, the very famous International Institute for Management Development (IMD) obviously stands out. Students come from far away to study at this school and at others, in view of obtaining the best training there is.
Nevertheless, in the heart of Western Switzerland, all the universities and universities of applied sciences favour ongoing training, to improve competences that have already been acquired.
One example is the Executive MBA in Management of Technology (MoT) with the option Biotech, Medtech and Pharma, which is jointly organized by EPFL and the University of Lausanne with the collaboration and the support of BioAlps.
