Geneva's multicultural and international setting offers students of this course a unique opportunity to observe global and regional integration in action, efforts to achieve sustainable development and peace, and actions to promote human security and alleviate poverty and individual suffering.
Geneva is a focal point for multilateral diplomacy and is at the centre of the Multilateral Trading System. Experts and policy-makers meet in formal and informal sessions to discuss a wide range of issues including development, environment, human health, human rights, international trade, labour, migration, refugees, telecommunications and many more.
Our Programmes include lectures by experts from these organisations as well as site visits to some of these organisations. Participants have a unique opportunity to network with professionals and policy-makers in international affairs, often on a one-to-one basis.
The gatherings also offer participants the opportunity to secure internships or make contacts that will be useful to them in the pursuit of their careers. Geneva is an important destination for students interested in a career in international trade or international affairs.
