Short Programmes

These short, open enrolment executive programmes are designed as a practical infusion of professional development that broaden your exposure and offer a refresh on the most current issues in world affairs, to advance your skills or expertise in niche areas.  They offer opportunities for learning and networking with colleagues from various organisations and sectors, welcoming participants from both Geneva and beyond.  Some short course programmes also carry ECTS credits.

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