Our Academic Programmes

The Geneva School of Diplomacy offers Academic Degree Programmes from the Bachelor to the Doctorate level, including Executive education focused on both theory and the development of essential diplomatic skills. GSD also provides tailor-made programmes to meet the specific needs of corporations, missions, and schools.

We strive to provide an excellent education that creates career opportunities and ensures that our students learn from industry leaders, foreign affairs specialists and academics at the cutting edge of diplomatic practice and international relations. Within a dynamic and stimulating environment, our students engage in small-group settings that foster personalised development and leadership skills.

We also offer a range of Executive Programmes and tailored training courses aimed at enhancing professional skills through a diverse modular curriculum, personalised teaching methods, and an interactive learning environment.

It is mandatory for all GSD students to complete at least one internship during the course of their Bachelor studies. This is an ideal way for students to gain practical experience, expand their network, and apply theoretical knowledge to real world issues.

In order to help students in their internships search, GSD has developed regular agreements with a network of organisations, benefiting from its Geneva location and the nearby presence of embassies, diplomatic missions, governmental agencies, NGOs, multinational corporations, etc.
