Prepare Yourself for Senior Management Challenges and Responsibilities!

Founded in 1559 by Jean Calvin, the University of Geneva (UNIGE) is dedicated to thinking, teaching, dialogue and research. With 16,500 students of more than 150 different nationalities, it is Switzerland’s second largest university.

UNIGE offers more than 500 programmes (including 129 Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes, 80 doctoral programmes) and more than 300 continuing education programmes covering an extremely wide variety of fields: exact sciences, medicine, humanities, social sciences, law, etc.

Just like the city of Geneva itself, the university enjoys a strong international reputation, both for the quality of its research (it ranks among the top institutions among the League of European Research Universities) and the excellence of its education. This acclaim has been won in part due to its strong ties to many national and international Geneva-based organisations, such as the World Health Organization, the International Labour Organization and the International Committee of the Red Cross.



The Executive MBA programme (EMBA) at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) is structured to ensure that participants gain leadership training through active participation and a corporate executive philosophy without interrupting their careers.

The learning experience of UNIGE’s EMBA is beneficial to students and businesses alike, as participants invariably face the challenges and changes found in organisations and businesses. Candidates not only learn to sustain their drive and determination at their jobs throughout the EMBA courses, but also to complete their studies with a renewed sense of purpose and a more marketable skill set, all the while participating in the stimulating activities organised by the EMBA Alumni group (over 800 members). The UNIGE EMBA’s participant mix is carefully selected, and its teaching staff is keenly aware of the need for managers and business leaders to develop and implement efficient operational solutions to complex situations rather than simply adopting ready-made solutions.
