The first two years offer students a solid business foundation through the lens of your chosen sector specialization. They study key areas, such as finance, management, and marketing, while they discover how their chosen sector works, meet key people from the sector, visit companies, and more.

  • Digital Marketing
  • International Relations
  • Sports Management.

Throughout the program, students can pick up additional qualifications, so that they graduate not just with their Geneva Business School degree, but with a symphony of diverse skills to help them take on the modern business world. This additional knowledge doesn’t just make joining the workforce easier, but it gives recent graduates the edge when it comes to applying for top positions.

Students can choose from five other specializations:

  • International Management

International Management teaches you the key theories and principles of running a global team. Students gain the leadership tools and confidence to successfully run a modern international enterprise.

  • Entrepreneurship

The Entrepreneurship specialization focuses on developing ideas and analyzing business plans. You will launch your own projects and graduate with the confidence to excel in the world of business.

  • International Finance

The International Finance program makes you proficient in financial and investment theories, while providing strategies to understand the intricacies of valuation and quantitative analysis.

  • Digital Marketing

Digital Marketing highlights the latest in marketing technologies, business development, and strategic planning. Graduates often pursue leadership roles in content creating, publishing, and media.

  • International Relations

International Relations teaches you about world politics and its impact on business. Upon graduation, you can pursue a career in global conflicts management and international cooperation.

  • Sports Management

Sports Management teaches the skills needed for a career in sports marketing. You will focus on event management, new technologies, and networking so you can make an impact in this booming industry.
