Study for 2 degrees in 1 year in Geneva.

Designed for careers in International Organizations, Diplomatic Services, and Private Sector.

The Master of International Relations and Diplomacy (MIR-D) responds to the growing demand to train young professionals in Geneva for decision-making careers in international organizations, diplomatic services, and the private sector. Situated in the same city as the United Nations headquarters in Europe, the program takes full advantage of Geneva’s unique situation as a world capital of multilateral diplomacy. The MIR provides substantial resources for its international faculty and student body to network with international institutions (UNHCR, UNECE, UNCTAD, WTO, WHO, ILO, ITU, WIPO, WEF, ICRC) and diplomatic missions.

Students may select a unique option: undertaking the IUG master in IR consisting of 14 taught modules and extending their studies to include an individual research dissertation to gain the award of MA IR at the University of Plymouth (UK). Upon successful completion of 12 out of 14 taught modules, at IUG, the student can progress directly into the dissertation stage of the MA IR at UoP, which would be an extra 4 months duration without leaving Geneva
