The Graduate Institute Of Geneva Joins UNICON
Earlier this month the UNICON board approved The Graduate Institute Of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland for associate membership. Guillemette Carlucci, Executive Education Portfolio Manager, will serve as UNICON Primary Representative.
Founded in 1927, the Graduate Institute of International Studies (IHEI or HEI) was continental Europe’s oldest school of international relations and was the world’s first graduate institute dedicated solely to the study of international affairs.
It offered one of the first doctoral programmes in international relations in the world. In 2008, the Graduate Institute absorbed the Graduate Institute of Development Studies, a smaller postgraduate institution also based in Geneva founded in 1961. The merger resulted in the current Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, also know as The Graduate Institute Of Geneva.
Today the school enrolls close to a thousand postgraduate students from over 100 countries. Foreign students make up nearly 90% of the student body and the school is officially a bilingual English-French institution, although the majority of classes are in English.
Please welcome them to the consortium.
