This Master is designed as a full time program. Courses will be mainly given during the week days (even if external interventions could be scheduled in the evening or during weekends). Also, this is a program which requires a lot of project team work so frequent interactions with peers will be expected. There is no such option as following the program part time
Graduates will receive a Master of Science in Sustainable Management & Technology degree delivered jointly by UNIL, IMD and EPFL. Please note that this degree is not equivalent to an Engineer degree.
This is a Master program in management that seeks to anticipate the future directions of the economy, particularly in terms of technology and sustainability. This is its strength! On the other hand, it is true that it is designed to have a generalist orientation less specialized than some of the other Master programs offered by HEC Lausanne.
Due to the generalist nature of the program, we are aiming for a wide range of career opportunities in industry. Graduates will be trained in management with a focus on the world of tomorrow. They will have acquired interdisciplinary skills enabling them to navigate and be creative in all sectors impacted by technological change and requiring sustainable models of development.
Career services will be provided by the Career Orientation Office at UNIL and the Career Center at EPFL.
Yes, they will.
