Europe’s most relevant Executive MBA

A joint programme in general management focusing on technology and leadership by ETH Zürich and University of St.Gallen in Switzerland

It’s time for a change in altitude

Located in the heart of Europe and the Alps, Switzerland is consistently ranked as one of the best countries in the world, for its economic influence, entrepreneurial atmosphere, quality of life and education system.

Switzerland is also the epitome of neutrality. However, at emba X we believe the time has come for Switzerland and Europe to take a stance and put their unique assets fully at the service of positive global outcomes.

With this programme, two top Swiss institutions join forces to design an innovative Executive Education curriculum for senior and experienced leaders which integrates technology and leadership in a journey through ever-changing landscapes.

The challenge. The growth. The impact. An ultimate alpine trek.
