IMD business school for management and leadership courses
Our day-to-day engagement with program participants creates a virtuous circle for thought leadership. Faculty gain insight and ideas and share these back to them in the form of research and practical experience. We generate fresh knowledge and approaches in a rapidly changing world of business, combining Swiss excellence with cultural diversity and an international outlook.
Our global research centers continuously push boundaries while addressing, in a practical way, the key challenges faced by business and society. Our researchers delve into the most relevant themes for business today, including digital transformation, sustainability and social innovation, future readiness, and world competitiveness, as well as boards and family businesses. We also generate new research under initiatives such as artificial intelligence, workplace well-being, diversity, equity and inclusion, and strategic talent.
We draw on our close interactions with the business world to produce compelling, authoritative case studies that are sought after and used by peer business schools, universities, and companies around the world. Our faculty authors publish frequently in the top practitioner journals. We are the most published institution in Harvard Business Review and MIT Sloan Management Review after Harvard Business School and MIT (2020-2022).
