10 October 2017

We just set up a Geneva Academy Alumni Group on LinkedIn!

This group serves as a community space for those who have graduated from the Geneva Academy or from its predecessor, the University Centre for International Humanitarian Law (CUDIH), to engage in meaningful and intentional networking.

As members of this group, our alumni will be able to:

  • Connect with each other
  • Share information regarding job opportunities and internships
  • Plan informal meetings and networking events in their area
  • Discuss topical issues
  • Share articles and experiences
  • And more!

‘This group is meant to be a space for our alumni to start a discussion, share information about work, discuss challenging questions, offer advice, exchange and connect with peers’ underline Dany Diogo, Coordinator of Master Programmes at the Geneva Academy.

‘We hope to create a strong, close-knit community of alumni and are open ideas and initiatives as we work to develop and strengthen this network’ adds Nathalie Mivelaz Tirabosco, Communication Officer at the Geneva Academy.

You can click here to join, and begin connecting with your fellow alumni today!
