About IMD Switzerland
IMD business school is in Lausanne, Switzerland. It is a business school located in Lausanne.
IMD was formed in January 1990 through the merger of independent management education centers International Management Institute (Geneva) (IMI), established in 1946 by Alcan, and Institut Pour ‘Etude des Methodes de Direction de l ‘Enterprise (IMEDE) Lausanne established in 1957 by Nestle. The new organization, the International Institute for Management Development (IMD), settled in Lausanne. The history of IMEDE and its merger with IMI is documented in Jean-Pierre Jeannet and Hein Schreuder.
Its industrial heritage sets it apart from the other leading business schools, which are all university-affiliated. IMD business school solely provides executive education; it is determinedly not part of a university, and there are no academic departments, just one integrated multidisciplinary faculty. The professors do not have permanent academic tenure but work under one-year contracts and a performance based pay package. The faculty consists of 60 full-time members, made up of 23 different nationalities.
IMD has a strong focus on training and developing general management and leadership skills. IMD selects experienced candidates for both the Master Of Business Administration (MBA) and the Executive MBA. Its other focus is to have a broad international group of participants attending open programs to ensure that no nationality dominates. Every year, some 8,000 executives, representing over 98 nationalities attend one of the programs.
