a unique pedagogical experience
An education at the Graduate Institute prepares graduates for international careers in the public, private and non-profit sectors. With 30 international organisations, 250 NGOs, 172 diplomatic missions and 931 multinational companies in close proximity of the Institute, there is a consistent flow of internship and job opportunities in a diverse range of international work. The strong links between the Institute’s students that have worked in Geneva’s international community have left a positive impression for those going forward.
Our Interdisciplinary Master programmes include the completion of an Applied Research Project (Capstone). These projects gives students the opportunity to collaborate with one of the Graduate Institute’s international partners in Geneva to conduct hands-on research.
As part of the programmes, students also attend professional skills workshops, which are facilitated by industry experts. These workshops help students acquire or enhance the tools necessary for them to build a career in international affairs and/or development.
