Master Programs

The Master in Information Systems (MSc IS) is a joint program by HEC Lausanne, one of the leading European business schools, and University of Neuchâtel. For our Master in Information Systems, we have developed a rich and challenging program that significantly increases our students' value on the labor market. Our objective is to provide balanced education along two axes. Firstly, we offer a mix of courses in information system management and information system engineering. Students have to take 5 courses in each of these areas. This gives our students an understanding of the potential and limits of information and communication technology in their implementation within an organization. Secondly, we offer both a solid conceptual foundation and practical skills related to information systems. This will enable our students to easily navigate through the different levels of abstraction required for the design, deployment and management of an information system. Lastly, we note that this Master's degree represents the outcome of the experience we have acquired over more than 30 years, as it is the direct continuation of our former "Postgraduate Diploma in Information and Organization (DPIO)." Our Master's program is among the top 10 IS Master programs in Europe.

PhD Programs

The HEC Lausanne doctoral program offers candidates the possibility of acquiring a high level of knowledge through intensive research training. Doctoral studies aim at developing the ability to complete an independent scientific study within an agreed timetable, to make an original contribution to research, and to add to the body of knowledge in the chosen specialist area. Undertaking a doctoral program implies a personal commitment for three to five years. It involves a long course of study dedicated to research, the results of which will be presented in a thesis.
