Mission statement HEIG-VD
Switzerland has a long-standing tradition of multiple languages, international trade and humanitarian missions. The fairly young Universities of Applied Sciences in Switzerland focus on professional education at University level, including state-of-the-art technologies and international cooperation in the areas of student and staff exchange as well as applied research.

We strongly believe that an understanding of cultures other than our own is an indispensable part of today’s education and tomorrow’s reality in an increasingly interdependent global society.

HEIG-VD, the School of Management and Engineering Vaud, therefore offers study abroad programs as part of the curriculum to its students and welcomes every year a number of international students for regular classes or projects.
