“Without continuing education, the emergence of new technologies makes us lose one third of our professional skills every four years.” Alain Dehaze, CEO of Adecco

Whether for professional development or as a form of personal enrichment, continuing education is integral to leading an active life.

  • CAS – HES-SO Certificate of Advanced Studies, 10-ECTS minimum
  • DAS – HES-SO Diploma of Advanced Studies, 30-ECTS minimum
  • MAS – HES-SO Master of Advanced Studies, 60-ECTS minimum
