Why choose the Institute?

Are you interested in an international career? Welcome to the Institute!


We are the oldest establishment in the world (1927) entirely devoted to preparing students for an international career, including jobs in universities. We are happy to welcome our students in the most modern urban campus at an institution of social sciences in the world today.

We prepare our students for a fulfilling professional life in three areas:

  • international cooperation: national administrations operating on an international level (central banks, ministries of foreign affairs, of trade, of the economy, of finance, etc.), international organisations, non-governmental organisations, associations and international foundations
  • international affairs: legal and consulting firms, multinationals (above all in the corporate/government affairs and public relations sectors), insurance and finance
  • the analysis of international life: university teaching and research, research departments within international institutions or companies, the media, think tanks, etc.
     

Our strengths:

The Graduate Institute belongs to APSIA (Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs) and The Europaeum (an association of leading European universities).

In 2015, it has been ranked amongst the 25 best universities preparing for policy careers in international relations by the Foreign Policy magazine.
