Getting to the top is optional.
Getting down is mandatory.

Calling 21st. Century Leaders

A typical emba X cohort is a gender-balanced group of 20-30 intrinsically motivated and experienced executives, with very diverse backgrounds.

As an emba X student you need to integrate technology and management knowledge, whilst developing your skills and mindset to fulfill your goal of delivering sustainable positive impact to yourself, to your organization, to your environment and to society at large.

Is emba X a programme for me?


Just as your fellow emba-Xers, you are a competent, purpose-driven networker who has the ability and role to introduce change in your organization, which ideally supports you in pursuing this programme.

You also recognize the strengths of Switzerland in the global landscape as a market, network, innovation hub, learning environment, etc. and identify with the values behind “Swiss Quality”.

Most importantly – you are not just looking for a reputable degree from two renowned institutions: you see your participation in this programme as an impactful personal development journey, and a commitment to responsible social impact.

As an emba X graduate, you will join Switzerland’s most influential alumni network (ETH Zurich + University of St.Gallen) as a socially responsible, well-rounded 21st century leader, fully ready and able to challenge the established ways of thinking, getting things done, and engaging others in constantly learning, unlearning and relearning.


The great thing about reaching the top of the mountain is realizing that there’s space for more than one person. And now you’re in the prime position to help others up.
