Alumni Index: A Look Inside Switzerland's Top 100 Companies

How Switzerland's Strategic Leaders Train for the Top

Where did Switzerland's board members and top executives study? What are the most common degrees and subject areas? What further education are directors pursuing to prepare for the very top?

In the Winter 2020 edition of the Swiss Alumni Index, we examined all 1,497 executive and non-executive directors of Switzerland's 100 largest firms, covering both the members of the executive committee (Geschäftsleitung) and board of directors (Verwaltungsrat).
