MBA Scholarships Fundraising Initiative

Each year, MBA alumni choose to support IMD. Their gifts fund merit-based scholarships for MBA participants which cover a broad range of costs — everything from tuition fees to living expenses.

What inspires our alumni to give?

Each donor has their own specific reasons, but many of our alumni, friends, and institutional partners are motivated by two overarching principles.

  • They want to give back.
    Our alumni believe that IMD truly helped them become the leaders they are today. They want to give thanks to our academic institution and enable its future success.

  • They want to give forward.
    Our alumni actively support the next generation of MBA participants. They are committed to ensuring the IMD MBA program continues to shape the leaders of tomorrow.

In 2019, IMD and the IMD Scholarship Foundation awarded more than CHF1 million in scholarships and financial aid. Alumni who donate can be proud of their gifts, knowing that they are helping to provide valuable tuition assistance and living expenses for exceptional MBA participants.

The MBA Alumni Scholarship Initiative

The MBA Alumni Scholarship Initiative will also improve IMD’s ability to attract top talent in an arena where competing programs are offering increasingly significant scholarships. The Initiative was launched by the MBA Alumni Class of 1976, which created a CHF50,000 annual scholarship. The Alumni Club of Lausanne followed suit with a second scholarship, and several new awards are currently being established.
