We train innovative leaders

Setting an Example. Innovative leaders embody a certain type of skills. No matter their level in the organisation, they must win the trust of others. The School of management Fribourg (HEG-FR) prepares you for this. There is little doubt that the future will continue to be ruled by change. That`s why we go beyond the mere transmission of knowledge; the HEG-FR teaches students how to reflect and decide. We awaken the innovative spirit of the leader, whose main objectives are to instil exemplary behaviour and transmit the company`s  sense of social responsibility.



I teach to shape the leaders of tomorrow. Join in! 

Jerome Schaufeld, Professor Worcester Polytecnical Institute (WPI) - HEG Fribourg, Consultant

Students of the HEG integrate themselves in their professional lives in the best possible way, thanks to a programme focussed on the practical. As an entrepreneur, I have often had the opportunity to share my expertise with enthusiastic students, who, for their part, are hungry for new experiences. 

Jean-Marie Ayer, Founder of Dartfish


As a board member of a Swiss company, active throughout the country and responsible for activities in French-speaking and German-speaking Switzerland, I know the HEG-FR well. I have put several people in contact with the school to perfect their skills, and am well aware of the value of an intercultural education. 

Serge Reymond, Board Member of Tamedia SA, Head of French and German Language Publications and Media

Cooperation with the HEG-FR for studies on internationalization behaviour was very fruitful: we were able to refine our understanding of our clientele, and at the end, we were in a position to share our experiences concerning better practices with our clients.

Nicole Walker, Head of Marketing Commercial Clientele, Member of the Extended Board of PostFinance

The dialogue between theoreticians and practitioners in any training institution is rarely as close as at the HEG-FR. For PostFinance, this is an excellent basis for fruitful collaboration.

Charly Suter, Market Manager, Commercial Clientele Development, PostFinance, Bern

​At HEG-FR I was able to optimally combine my studies with my sporting career. In addition, the opportunity to hone my intercultural and language skills has proven extremely useful in my present job - not to mention the entrepreneurial mindset that you could feel throughout the school.  

Gerd Zenhäusern, Former Head Coach, Fribourg Gottéron

The HEG-FR`s focus on the practical helped me understand the diverse interactions of the economy. As a former top-performance athlete, I was able to combine school and sport in the best possible way.
