Due to the current covid-19 pandemic, the MAS program will not take place in 2020. Instead, we have revised our CAS On Migration and Diversity starting March 2021. Our expert faculty will present different perspectives on causes and challenges of migration and diversity. While we will stay in Switzerland, our minds will travel globally.


The MIC programs are multicultural in its essence and therefore it has study trips to India, Lebanon and within Switzerland.

Executive Center

Executive Masters programs are held in the Executive Center, located in the historic neoclassical main building. The two classrooms have been designed to ensure a high level of interaction. Their climate control, high quality of technical equipment for instruction and the comfortable interior design ensure an ideal learning environment. The Executive Center is also equipped with breakout spaces for group work and a business area, where participants can use facilities necessary for keeping in touch with their organizations during their stay in Lugano.
