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.
We offer scholarships to outstanding students who are unable to secure the funding required to cover tuition fees and/or the cost of living in Geneva.
Our objective is to produce graduates who will be leaders in the humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice fields.
The Geneva Academy alumni community is made up of over 700 members who work worldwide in the humanitarian and human rights fields.
Our three master's programmes provide a solid foundation for careers in the humanitarian and human rights fields.
