Looking for the BEST 1-Year MBA Program close to Lusanne, Switzerland/France/UK


GT707

Hello,
I am applying for a 1-Year MBA Program that has a good ranking and ROI for Jan 2014 Intake. My partner has a accepted an opportunity in Lausanne, Switzerland and would like to move closer to him and also learn French. I am U.S. Citizen, 4 years work experience close to 5 as an Admissions and Marketind Director for a Healthcare Facility and have my B.S. in Marketing. I also have experience working for Non-Profit Organizations (6 months each) and have a lot of experience with working as a volunteer for the community/reputable charities for the last 3 years as Team Captain. I am planning on taking my GMAT end of this Month. I do plan to come back to the U.S. after graduation, but open for employment opportunities elsewhere. Any recommendation on which school fit my preference would be greatly appreciated.

The odds are against a small city like Lausanne having a January start. You'll have more choice if you can start in September.

The best school by far is IMD, which I think does have a January start. There are only a few other options: HEC is an excellent school with international accreditation. It has 15 month executive MBA and MAS degrees taught in English, but check their different start dates: http://www.hec.unil.ch/hec/executive?set_language=en&cl=en EPFL is one of the world's top universities. Its MBA focussed in technology (http://mot.epfl.ch/emba/general-info) and is also a part-time programme lasting around a year.
