- Campus Life
About half of our MBAs are couples, and whether you both relocate or not, this is a joint journey.
IMD's Integration Program helps you, as a partner, to settle in, develop a network and plan for your own transformational year ahead.
You will be a part of the IMD community, welcome to join our partner lunches, with access to workshops, events and guest speakers, and to development opportunities such as the International Dual Career Network, leadership coaching, and language courses. You will also be able to join some of our MBA electives.
You'll be supported as you find your place on campus and in Lausanne
Make long-lasting friendships and build your network
Change is in the air - a great time to explore new things
From practical support as you embark on your journey, to offering a friendly welcome and advice, we will help you integrate into IMD's incredibly diverse community and Lausanne itself. We address topics such as childcare, language, career, daily living and cultural opportunities so that you can make the most of your year from day one. You also have access IMD campus facilities including a fully-equipped partner study room, the information center, gym and cafeteria.
With all the possibilities and combinations available, it can help to talk to someone. I'm happy to offer advice or put you in touch with past or current partners.
