Geneva Business School (GBSGE)
GBSGE offers bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in Finance and Business Administration with seven different majors focusing – among other specializations – on the International, geopolitical and digital aspects of management, marketing and entrepreneurship. Founded as the Institut de Formation de Gestionnaire de Patrimoe (IFGP) in 1995, the school’s initial mission was to provide instruction to private bankers in Switzerland. Furthermore, in 2001, the IFGP broadened its mission and created the University of Finance to provide education in International banking and finance, not only to bankers, but to aspiring students as well. The establishment became known as the Geneva Business School in 2010 to highlight the importance of the campus location and, above all, its newfound purpose to teach a full Business Administration and finance curriculum of graduate and post-graduate courses.
