IMD is an independent not-for-profit foundation with no financial support from government. The school serves the international corporate community, helping develop and retain the best qualified management talent for global leadership. IMD, the most international of all executive education institutions worldwide, is dedicated to being the “global meeting place.” It is one of the world’s leading graduate business schools, bringing cutting-edge, practical focus on dilemmas and pertinent research into the classroom in the shortest possible time – to support what IMD calls “Real World. Real Learning.”
IMD was established in January 1990, as the successor of two previously independent business schools: IMI, founded in Geneva by Alcan in 1946, and IMEDE, founded in Lausanne in 1957 by Nestlé. Incorporated under the name "International Institute for Management Development," IMD, as the institution is now known, provides executive education for large- and medium-size international businesses, and for individuals.
IMD is truly international. Every year, some 8,000 executives, representing over 98 nationalities, attend more than 20 open-enrollment Executive Development Programs (including intensive MBA and EMBA programs) as well as company-specific Partnership Programs. Participants come from virtually every sector of service and manufacturing industries. Cultural backgrounds range from young managers to board members from world-class corporations. English is the working language, though no single business approach dominates.
