The International Organizations MBA (IO-MBA) at the University of Geneva has scholarships available for full-time students.
Scholarships for Partner IOs & NGOs (for part-time participants): Reduction on program fees for participants working in an IO or an NGO partner of the IO-MBA program
The IO-MBA offers a multidisciplinary curriculum taught by an international faculty from leading universities around the world and practitioners from IOs and NGOs. The coursework explores contemporary management tools and techniques and connects theory with practice in the context of international organizations. A future-focused curriculum bringing management and sustainability together prepares graduates to “bridge the gap” between the private sector, public sector, and social purpose organizations. Through a lively and active IO-MBA Alumni Association, students have access to a network of alumni working in various sectors in international development, including business, government, NGOs, and social enterprise.
At IO-MBA, located in the heart of global Geneva, close to the United Nations and other prestigious international institutions, the city is the classroom. Field trips, guest speakers, and special events connect participants to organizations for hands-on experience.
Participants from low- and middle-income countries are strongly encouraged to apply; IO-MBA offers scholarships and housing support based on need and academic merit. Candidates who submit their application earlier will receive priority scholarship consideration.
