Abstract

Les études sur les carrières de dirigeants ou top managers visent traditionnellement à souligner les influences des cadres institutionnels nationaux sur les parcours de carrières. Plus rares sont les études portant sur les carrières de top managers internationaux. Bien que la figure du manager international ait été l'objet de recherche de plusieurs études issues de disciplines différentes, rares sont les études qui font une analyse détaillée des profils et des parcours de carrières. Dans cet article, nous nous sommes intéressés au cas suisse, pays dont les comités de direction des plus grandes entreprises sont caractérisés par une présence importante de top managers étrangers avec un parcours très international. Nous avons collecté et classé des données de type biographique et des informations sur le parcours de carrière des dirigeants des 110 plus grandes entreprises suisses en 2010 (200 personnes pour 207 fonctions exécutives). Nous les avons mises en perspective historique avec les données suisses de 1980 et 2000 et observé plusieurs résultats: une augmentation du nombre de managers étrangers, de plus en plus de formations en économie et management et la coexistence de profils de managers internationaux très diversifiés.
