The Business School Lausanne (Lausanne School of Business) was founded by Dr. John Hobbs in 1987: before that, he taught at another educational institution and was dissatisfied with the material that was taught there, because he considered it ineffective - too much theory and not enough practice. He created his own school, where highly qualified specialists began to teach, who were interested in this area and presenting material to other people.

Today, Business School Lausanne is one of the best in the world, is a member of the European Organization for Management Development (EFMD) and a group of private schools in Lemania, accredited by the Association of University Schools and Business Programs. The priority of the Lausanne business school is a modern and high-quality education that keeps up to date. The teaching staff of the educational institution uses its own methods of doing business in practice and regularly shares experience with students.
