Why study global finance in Switzerland?
Combine your interest in ethical banking, sustainable finance and circular economy in Geneva, one of the world’s leading financial centers and a major international hub for international organizations and NGOs. While learning about macroeconomics and global finance from a socially responsible and sustainable business perspective, you’ll build networks with experts at leading financial institutions, nongovernmental organizations, universities and think-tanks. You’ll have the option to intern with a sustainable development company, start-up, or intergovernmental organization or a Swiss or international NGO or conduct research in sustainable development and finance, circular economy, ethical banking, or impact investing.
During a two-week excursion to Greece, you’ll gain insight about the international 2008–09 financial crisis and examine the impact it had on the country’s financial system and economy. You’ll get a first-hand view of the recovery and state of society from Greek and international experts on the ground. You’ll also experience the richness of Greek culture, history, and cuisine.
