HEC Lausanne offers two Bachelor of Science, in Economics and in Management.
The first two years form a common study programme. The specialization occurs in the third year. Most holders of a Bachelor of Science in Management continue their studies with a Master’s degree.
The quantitative orientation of the two Bachelor programs is very strong: mathematics, statistics, accountability and information systems account for around two thirds of the teaching.
Bachelor in Economics
This program aims to equip students witha thorough understanding of the basic tools and models of economic analysis. Students will be expected to understand analytical tools such as differential calculus, probability theory and statistics as well as acquiring the skills to understand models such as perfect competition and growth theory. At the end of their studies, students will be able to apply economic theory in a range of contexts, including international trade, European integration, health economics, banking and finance.
Bachelor in Management
Graduates will be able to enter the business world in junior managerial positions. Students will have mastered skills such as accounting, law, statistics and marketing as well as reaching intellectual maturity through learning independent thinking, analysis and critical evaluation. Students are also expected to develop high ethical standards and be able to work with people from different backgrounds.
