Geneva is THE place to be when it comes to the study of global governance. It is not only a safe, small and cosmopolitan city located between mountains and Europe’s largest lake, it is also home from the United Nations, Red Cross, World Trade Organization, World Health Organization, UNHCR and other major agencies. The Institute being a short walk from these organisations, it allows students to benefit from excellent internship and job opportunities. Our students enjoy successful careers within international organisations, the private sector, government, non-profits, higher education and research: 90% of students find jobs within four months of graduating.
