«Zurich is a center of the global financial industry, is a place of innovation and a unique ecosystem in which leading companies and universities exchange ideas and inspire each other. As a member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU) and with its 12 Nobel Prize winners to date, the University of Zurich is one of the leading universities in the world. Sounds elitist? As researchers and lecturers, we are always learners ourselves and share this questioning path with curious people of all backgrounds. That's why it's worth going on the path with us.»

What Makes Us Unique?

Diverse Methodologies.

In our training programs you will find modular, hybrid and also classic, presentation-based approaches, because our methodology is geared to the needs of the participants and the different learning contents. So you'll find exactly the training format that meets your needs. And fits into the agenda.

Joy of Learning.

Continuing education can be so much more than chasing the next diploma. In a university setting, you will meet people who are passionate about their topics and issues, as lecturers, researchers and also lifelong learners. It is this joy of learning that will shape your continuing education even more than the content.

Research Quality.

The University of Zurich is one of the world's leading research locations, especially in economics. Our continuing education programs also benefit from this proximity to research. Current results from ongoing research enter into a constant dialogue with questions from practice, thus ensuring the relevance of the learning content.

Our Team.

The Executive Education Board is responsible for the strategic direction and overall management of Executive Education at the Faculty of Business, Economics and Informatics at the University of Zurich. Lecturers as well as practitioners are represented on this board and the governing bodies of the individual programs. In this way, we ensure that the right and bold questions are also asked internally.
