Short Programmes

Short executive programmes can broaden your exposure, offer a refresh on the most current issues in world affairs, and can help to build new skills and expertise in niche areas.  Some short course programmes also carry ECTS credits.  They offer opportunities for networking with colleagues from various organisations and sectors, welcoming participants from both Geneva and beyond.

Programme length can vary, from 2-3 days to modules of 1-week each.
