The programme is designed to train future executives or researchers who have both comprehensive knowledge of business issues and a specialisation in one or more advanced areas of management, such as marketing, strategic and international management, depending on their concentration.
Master students at the GSEM may go on exchange for one semester. Students may go on exchange as early as their second semester. They may earn up to 30 credits while on exchange. The dissertation cannot be substituted.
Graduates find work in all sectors both in Switzerland and abroad. Given the nature of the Geneva economy, opportunities are usually found in banking, financial institutions, fiduciaries, consulting firms, insurance agencies, local and international manufacturing, international trade companies (e.g. commodities trading, product distribution), international or global organisations (e.g. ICRC, UNHCR, WTO) and public administration.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
The Master of Science in Management program is targeted on the one hand at students who already hold a bachelor degree in management or business administration, who wish to deepen their knowledge in order to advance their future careers, and on the other hand at students who hold a bachelor or a master degree in another discipline than management, but who want to switch to the management field.
Admission to the master program is decided by the Dean upon recommendation of the scientific committee. Admission to the program is selective.
A bachelor degree in business administration, or another degree in the business field that is accepted as equivalent, is required for the direct entry into the program.
