IMD prolongs suspension of face-to-face programs on campus until 8th June

April 2020

The spread of COVID-19 these past weeks is affecting the lives of people worldwide and challenges all of us. The health and safety of our participants and clients is of utmost importance and in this exceptional time, all our thoughts and best wishes are with those who may be suffering from or have a loved one suffering from coronavirus.

The COVID-19 crisis has become a global phenomenon with many countries continuing to restrict “large gatherings of people”. Travel within and across many countries is also heavily affected. Given this current environment, we would like to communicate our decision to prolong the suspension of face-to-face executive programs on our Lausanne campus until 8th June 2020.

All programs requiring face-to-face interactions will either be converted to virtual delivery supported by IMD’s online learning tools or rescheduled to a future date. This decision will be made on a program-by-program basis, and executives and companies registered for these programs are being contacted accordingly.

As of 8th June 2020, IMD is planning to re-open the campus with selected face-to-face programs. We thank you for your understanding and invite you to engage with our online content from your homes. This includes IMD’s Leading in Turbulent Times output and non-related fresh content.

If you have any queries on the temporary suspension of programs, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected]
