EXECUTIVE EDUCATION Today


Under the new joint Direction of Professor Mohamedou, Director of Executive Education (since September 1st, 2021) and Eliane Ballouhey, Executive Director of Executive Education (since February 2020), the Institute’s Graduate Executive Education is entering in a new strategic phase. To achieve its ambition, it is aligning its resources to fulfill its new mission statement:

Executive Education leverages the Graduate Institute’s (excellence) cutting-edge research, responsible policy engagement and trusted voice to equip engaged professionals with the competences to operate under uncertainty and drive inclusive growth for sustainable impact

Our campus

2008, A MILESTONE YEAR for executive education


Education and training for professionals is a clear priority of the new Institute. To meet this objective, the Institute created in 2008 an Executive Education platform that regrouped existing programmes from the two previous institutions and that will build upon existing expertise to develop a cutting-edge and diversified set of courses.

 

our Legacy
 

The Graduate Institute’s creation in 1927 was prompted by the establishment of the League of Nations in Geneva following World War I, and from the desire to avoid a new global catastrophe by making diplomacy more transparent and by better training citizens on international issues.

In the early 2000s, public authorities in Bern and Geneva initiated the idea of bringing Graduate Institute of International Studies (HEI) and Graduate Institute of Development Studies (IUED) together to increase Geneva’s international profile through the creation of a major academic institution.
