We are the Institute

An Unparalleled Academic Experience in the Heart of International Geneva

The students at the Graduate Institute, Geneva make up a great patchwork of cultures and ethnicities. This unique, diverse community is full of impactful ideas that get their start from something simple: an exchange, an event, a life experience that, when shared with others, can lead to big opportunities to make the world a better place.

What makes the Graduate Institute different from Harvard is a broader spectrum of people, which brings a broader perspective of ideas in the classroom, and the interdisciplinary approach.

Meeting and exchanging with the diverse group of interesting people at the Graduate Institute nurtured the right state-of-mind to build bridges between people and that's a big part of my job.
Giordano
Head of Office Geneva, Singa Switzerland
Taking classes like the Global Health classes definitely helped me. I knew right away that I wanted to focus the rest of my academic studies and potentially orient myself towards a career in that field.

The Institute is home to students who make up a community on a human scale and who fully reflect humanity’s diversity. This cosmopolitanism contributes to the Institute’s wealth of expertise and its analysis of the challenges of globalisation.
