Studying at the Institute

Studying at the Institute is an experience that marks your life in four different ways:

  • the experience of an institution on a human scale, where students and teachers work very closely together
  • the experience of a cosmopolitan community (around 100 different nationalities), where a global network and lasting friendships are formed
  • the experience of a vibrant intellectual community, with shared interests in international and development issues
  • the experience of academic rigour applied to specific problems, taking advantage of the rich resources of International Geneva (work experience, research reports) to form a firm foundation for an international career
