The Geneva School of Diplomacy and International Relations (GSD) is the specialized private, boutique university institute in Geneva for undergraduate, graduate and executive level education in the field of International Relations and Diplomacy. We also offer specialised courses for professionals from the public, private and non-profit sectors to help them further enhance their skills and advance in their career paths. See all our programmes here.
GSD is located in the very heart of the diplomatic world. Our connections with surrounding international organisations, missions and NGO’s, the small, interactive classes with highly distinguished faculty members and the many lectures hosted by high profile guest speakers, give our students the ability to create a network that can be life lasting and life changing. Furthermore, our BA and Master students have to fulfil a mandatory internship during their studies.
GSD has a multicultural and multidisciplinary academic community that blends intellectual and cultural stimulation and offers the perfect environment for people who want to study abroad. Our purpose is to prepare future world leaders for their roles on the world stage to advance peace and human rights.
Attracting students from all over the world, GSD is committed to offering excellent education to a small number of highly qualified students. Many GSD Alumni benefited greatly from their time at GSD and in Geneva, being it to start their career in diplomacy and create a network or to enhance their knowledge and skills to better handle the global issues and challenges they face everyday.
