Who is BSL?

Established in 1987, Business School Lausanne (BSL) is an innovative business school, located in Switzerland. We provide a learning platform that enables individuals and organizations to thrive by co-creating viable business solutions for our planet and its people.

Today, more than ever, the world needs a new generation of leaders and entrepreneurs. One that cares not about being the best in the world, but rather, achieving the best for the world. Enabling our students to “be the change” is what inspires our work.

Students of sixty nationalities and diverse backgrounds join our experienced faculty in a collaborative exploration of business as a force for good. In small and personalized classes, our professors bring the latest business knowledge into the classroom every day and support our students in reaching their full potential.

We go beyond traditional education. We encourage our students to be collaborative, not competitive. We organize teaching and learning around societal, environmental, and economic issues, both globally and locally. We create an open space where all of us, students, professors, staff, researchers, and stakeholders, come together to ask courageous questions and to maximize the values that matter.

In Switzerland, BSL ranks #2 for its Master in International & Sustainable Finance, #3 for its Master in International Business, and #4 for its MBA in the QS Global Business Masters and MBA Rankings 2018. BSL also provides Executive Training in General Management, Corporate Finance (with preparation for the CFA Level I examination), and Sustainable Business (in collaboration with the University of St Gallen).

Welcome to our school and we look forward to connecting with you!
