The Master in Management provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to head a business or an organisation as well as with management tools and techniques and their underpinning principles and theories.

About

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.

Concentrations:
  • Strategic and International Management
  • Quantitative Marketing

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.

Admission to the master program is decided by the Dean upon recommendation of the scientific committee. Admission to the program is selective.
