Summer Programmes

We offer two Summer Programmes. The Summer Programmes are focused on either International Affairs, Trade and Development, or the United Nations and Global Challenges. These programmes are designed to give students and young professionals a unique insight into the areas of international affairs, trade and global governance. Those who take part in our Summer Programmes experience our world-class teaching and benefit from being at the heart of International Geneva, particularly by gaining exposure to key international institutions and practitioners during the programmes.

Our participants come from all over the world, from many different backgrounds, and are at various stages in their careers.

"Because of the prestige of the Graduate Institute, I had pretty high expectations for this course, but could never have imagined to what extent the reality was going to surpass them" -- Mariana Rosales (Summer Programme Participant)
