MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR

Message from the Chancellor The International University in Geneva (IUG) offers a broad variety of undergraduate, graduate and doctorate programs across a range of disciplines : Business, Finance and Accounting, Marketing, International Relations and Trade, Media and Communications. The University regularly scores highest marks amongst Swiss business schools. Course content evolves to adapt to the rapidly evolving business environment of our time and includes such vital topics as corporate social responsibility, sustainable development, resource and energy efficiency and emerging markets. Contributing to progress against the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), launched by the United Nations in 2016, including issues such as climate change and broader access to education and health care, is an important part of today’s business agenda. IUG fosters awareness of such ethical and social dimensions – and encourages and facilitates international exchange programs with over 20 leading academic institutions worldwide, to allow students to spend a credited semester at another university.

56

Geneva, as a city to study international business disciplines, can hardly be matched. Geneva is home to the headquarters of numerous multinational corporations, nongovernmental organizations, the World Economic Forum and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. Geneva is also the European seat of the United Nations as well numerous other government agencies, which allows the University to be in frequent contact and exchange with relevant international fora. The faculty and student body of the University represent a diversity of nationalities and cultures, providing an enriching multicultural learning experience that responds to the leadership requirements and managerial skills of the future.
