Schools and universities

Lausanne is popular with foreign students, whose higher-education choices include the University of Lausanne and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, the Business School Lausanne, and the MBA/EMBA programs at IMD.

The Lausanne Hotel School is internationally renowned. The school, which offers a Bachelor of Science degree, has been grooming professionals for the hospitality industry since 1893.

Younger foreign pupils can study at the International School of Lausanne (a non-profit, English-language day school with some 580 students of ages 3-18 from 50 countries) and Gan Chlomo (a.k.a. the  Lausanne Jewish School, which caters to children from preschool through fourth grade.)

Another private school, Lemania College, recently added the International Baccalaureate to its repertoire of language classes, commercial courses, and other programs for day and boarding students.
