Further professional development at HEG Fribourg

Our innovative further professional development programs respond to the current and future needs of companies and society and support training throughout working life.

Aimed at specialists and managers in business and public administration, some of these programs are of a general nature, whereas others enable the participants to specialize in a particular field. The courses are generally organized in cooperation with other schools or with professional associations that are recognized at a Swiss federal level. The classes are led by instructors with sound professional experience and knowhow in training adults.

Lifelong learning is the term used to refer to all courses taken after having obtained an initial training certificate. Further training may involve perfecting professional competences or acquiring new knowledge and skills. An average of 150 participants per year complete these training courses at the School of Management Fribourg, which records around 1000 days of short training courses.

Former les collaborateurs est devenu un enjeu stratégique, surtout pour les entreprises qui sont actives dans une branche en forte transformation.
