Haute école de gestion / Hochschule für Wirtschaft / School of Management
Founded in 1991 originally as the School of Economics and Administration (ESCEA), the Fribourg School of Management has continued to evolve over the years. Its flight has been demonstrated in particular through the scope of its training programmes (Bachelor's degree, Master's degree and on-going training), as well as the growth in the number of students and its professional bodies. There has also been considerable development in its applied research activities and contractual arrangements with businesses and organisations.
Building a future
"Achieve your ambitions" is one of the objectives set by the Fribourg School of Management. Affiliated with the University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland (HES-SO), it is the only school of management in Switzerland to offer a Bachelor's degree in business economics with a trilingual study option (FR/DE/EN). The school is also renowned for its Master's degree in entrepreneurship, which optimally combines a scientific basis with specific applications — a partnership that characterises the schools of management.
A passport to employment
Graduates from the Fribourg School of Management are extremely attractive to employers due to their extensive range of competences and their pragmatic approach to problem-solving, and they have the opportunity to actively pursue their chosen professional career. Additionally, by undertaking bilingual or trilingual training, they significantly increase their integration potential within the employment market. Thanks to established partnerships with regional, national and international companies, as well as administrations and organisations, the students enjoy a rich network that will be beneficial to them in the future.
Boost your career
The School of Management is a leader in the area of continuous training — it enjoys a privileged partnership with the State of Fribourg, offering its employees advanced training. This institution has also offered postgraduate courses for many years to executives in the private sector. Some of these programmes are of a general nature, whereas others enable the participants to specialise in a particular field.
