IMD (International Institute for Management Development) is located on the shores of Lake Geneva. It was born of the merger in 1990 between two independent colleges founded in the mid-20th century by two multinationals, Alcan and Nestlé. Every year, 10,000 students representing close to 100 nationalities – who range from junior managers to members of the boards of directors in multinational companies and represent a hundred or so nationalities – choose from the 70 study programmes on offer, including an 11-month course leading to a Master in Business Administration (MBA) and an Executive MBA (EMBA) for experienced managers.
The IMD employs around sixty teachers of nearly 20 different nationalities who are leading experts in their particular field. The quality of education at the IMD is world class, putting the institution among the best of its kind at international level.
