The Institute has been enjoying a period of increasing success and the support of its Alumni community is indispensable for it to continue on its path of excellence and innovation. An institute of higher education with ambitious goals such as ours needs the help of supporters who identify with its values and who contribute their energy to constantly improve it.
As Alumni, you can show your support in many ways: by helping us increase our network and presence all over the world through Alumni chapters or by taking on the role of Institute Ambassadors; by becoming a Class Leaders for your graduating classes and by attending receptions held for our Alumni or by coming to the Institute’s public events; by supporting the Careers Forum or by offering internships and job offers to our students, recent graduates and Alumni.
In addition, the Institute is actively engaged in a fundraising campaign to support its development projects. The objective of this campaign, announced at the Foundation Board meeting in March 2008, is to raise CHF 50 million between now and 2012. Many of our Alumni, along with other donors and foundations, have already made generous contributions while others have shown strong interest in our projects.
You too can help support our goals by donating at any time, if possible once a year. By donating to the institute in remembrance of your years of study, you can help give young people the same chance you had while contributing to the international outreach of Geneva and Switzerland. You can also support one of the Institute’s specific areas of study which are increasingly relevant to tackling global challenges.
Through your donation, you help us achieve our top priorities for the coming years:
We are counting on you!
