The Executive Master programme promotes academic excellence and independent critical thinking. One of its core outputs is a master’s paper written under the guidance of a faculty member.
Once the courses have been completed, participants have six months to submit a master’s paper. They are not required to remain on campus or in Geneva to write their papers. A class on research skills helps students to research and write their paper.
The paper gives students an opportunity to investigate a subject of special interest to them, deepening their knowledge and expertise through research as well as exchanges with experts, scholars and practitioners.
Courses cover the law of armed conflict, international human rights law and international criminal law, and also address current issues and challenges.
Our students have the opportunity to be taught by leading academics in the fields of international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
Professionals who are not enrolled in the Executive Master can take individual courses to deepen their expertise in a specific issue.
