The Economics and Management programme of University of Geneva has a strong focus on acquiring the quantitative skills needed for developing analytical skills, critical thinking and the ability to understand and responsibly solve tomorrow's complex problems.
A bilingual programme
Every first-year class is offered in both French and English. In the second and third years, classes are taught in either one language or the other. This allows all our students to develop the professional language skills essential for the job market – especially in an international environment like Geneva. The University of Geneva’s Maison des Langues offers English classes for interested students, and French support classes for non-native speakers.
Regardless of the class's teaching language, students can reply to exam questions in either English or French.
Quality, innovative teaching
Teaching combines lectures and practical work, offering classes and projects in which exercise and case study theory is put into practice. The use of stimulating innovations in teaching distinguishes our Bachelor's: we use simulation games, give classes focusing on sustainable development, offer students the opportunity to take part in an institutional project, give classes on responsible project management, as well as web-learning and seminars on developing interpersonal skills, and invite CEOs and managers of Geneva-based companies to give talks.
The week before the start of term, we offer a preparatory Math class to ensure that our students start the Bachelor’s program in the best possible conditions.
Surveys of our students’ entry into the world of work show that over half of our young graduates find their first job before they have even completed their studies, or within a month of graduating. On completing their studies, our students enter all fields, both in Switzerland and abroad. In Geneva, the character of the local economy means that most opportunities are in banking and finance, international organizations, consulting firms, international companies and the public sector.
