Strategy

School Strategy

We pursue
A continuous sustainable growth-strategy in all our fields of action, with a special emphasis on our graduate and postgraduate programs.
An active internationalization strategy in order to reinforce the “act local-think global” mindset and to build multicultural capabilities for our customers.
A quality assurance strategy driven by an embedded culture which is focused on providing high quality learning opportunities in a supportive environment. This quality culture is supported by each individual member of HEG-FR who is part of our network of service and management teams.



We operationalize our strategy by defining five Strategic Goals:

  1. State of the Art Guidance of the School

  2. Outstanding up to trilingual education for undergraduate and graduate programs (Bologna system)

  3. High quality Postgraduate & Executive Education meeting the market expectations

  4. High standards of applied research and development in order to be nationally and internationally recognized

  5. Close and strong partnership with private and public sectors
