Attestations, conventions and business cards

You’ve been hired, congratulations! From transcripts to other important documents, we can help you gather what you need to ensure a smooth transition into your new workplace.


To obtain an attestation for the OCPM from the Alumni Relations & Career Services to apply for work authorisation, send your request to with the following:

  • Employer name
  • Name of your manager or point of contact
  • Start date
  • End date
  • Contract type (internship, fixed term contract...)

The same is true for a tripartite convention (student, employer, Institute).

Business Cards


PhD and master students, as well as exchange students and students enrolled in Executive Education, can order business cards at the price of CHF 50 per 100 cards. 


  • Complete the order form electronically in English or French (the business cards will be issued in the selected language)
  • Pay the CHF 50 fee to the cashier at our accounting department (P1 - 421) and get the stamp on your order form
  • Send the completed form by email to:

Only titles relating to the Graduate Institute and validated by Alumni Relations & Career Services will be accepted. Academic enrolment years can be cited on the card.
