EMBA in Integrated management

Innovation, Leadership & Responsibility

You are a manager and you want to go further, motivate your teams along and have a positive impact on your environment. Our program has been designed to support, inspire and transform you. We want to help you see and discover the best opportunities that come your way. And allow you to consider your world from a new perspective in order to give you the means to use your full potential to shape your environment to your image.

This program is unique, as it is the only Executive Master in Business Administration in Switzerland held in three languages, namely French, English and optionnally in German. We are of the belief that the three major challenges facing the leaders of today are knowing how to anticipate and control change, ensuring continuous innovation within the heart of the company and managing in an increasingly multicultural environment. This multicultural approach extends beyond the three teaching languages with a study trip abroad.



An ambitious program

Market globalisation, a growing environmental complexity, and rapid change are setting new challenges for corporate executives. The future belongs to those entrepreneurs who know how to master new situations dynamically. The School of Management Fribourg has offered an Executive MBA since 1999 to meet these challenges.

The aim of this training is to develop the managerial skills and social intelligence of those taking part in order to successfully prepare them for the new challenges in their professional lives.

Modern and practical teaching

Teaching content is concrete and practical and constantly enriched and adapted to meet the latest evolutions in modern business management. Candidates have the opportunity to apply what they have learned individually and in groups. Numerous case studies and simulations permit participants to measure the consequences of their decisions. Teaching is done in three languages (French, English and German).

Target group

This Executive Master of Business Administration is for persons holding a degree from a University of Applied Sciences, a University, a Federal Institutes of Technology, or with equivalent skills, who would like to deepen their knowledge of business and management.


The EMBA is based on national and international cooperation, which gives its multicultural and multilingual character. This approach is delivered by a team from various places, including different universities. A two-week trip abroad consolidates the multicultural approach.


The EMBA program has been approved by the AAQ (Swiss Center of Accreditation and Quality Assurance in Higher Education). The degree issued is recognized by the Confederation.

Faculty and lecturers

Those involved in our continuous development courses are recognized for their expertise. Thanks to their experience and the use of up-to-date methods and tools, the training is very much geared towards actual practice.
