TransformTECH, a joint executive education program from EPFL and IMD



EPFL and IMD – two world-renowned schools located in Lausanne, Switzerland – have teamed up to offer a new joint program called TransformTECH.

This four-day executive education program brings together technology experts from EPFL, one of Switzerland’s leading engineering schools, with management experts from international business school IMD. They will pool their specialized know-how to give classes on leveraging technological innovation for business transformation, in a world where technology has become ubiquitous.

The TransformTECH program includes interactive sessions, meetings with entrepreneurs who have launched high-tech startups, and visits to EPFL labs researching major advancements like big data, artificial intelligence, robotics and the internet of things. It is designed to give students better knowledge and understanding of new technology, the impact it can have on their business models and the opportunities it can create.

Pierre Vandergheynst, EPFL Vice President for Education, and Marc Gruber, EPFL Vice President for Innovation, are looking forward to this new partnership with IMD: “There’s no escaping it, technology is affecting today’s businesses across the board. So we are delighted to be able to combine our expertise in technology with IMD’s management know-how to help companies navigate the challenges and disruptions caused by technological change.”
