Master of Advanced Studies in European and International Governance (University of Geneva, Academic year 2019-2020)

The Master of Advanced Studies Programme in European and International Governance (MEIG Programme) is organised in cooperation with the United Nations Office at Geneva and other Geneva based international Organisations, the European Union Delegation and permanent Missions in Geneva as well as in Brussel. It aims at transferring knowledge about European and international governance, as well as to provide participants with the essential professional skills to become a leader in this specific field.

The multidisciplinary programme prepares participants for leading positions in international or national organisations (public and private sector) working on governance issues. It is designed for students and young professionals who hold at least a Bachelor diploma.

Organised in eight thematic and methodological modules and an end-of-study project, the MEIG Programme lasts ten months (from end September to July). After two core modules that tackle the functioning of the United Nations system and the European Union institutions, both as global actors in governance issues, the MEIG Programme covers a wide set of thematic courses such as human rights and migration, peace, security and humanitarian affairs, international trade and development, health and environment as well as Agenda 2030 (Sustainable developments goals – SDGs) and its implementation by the public-private sectors. The Master’s end-of-study project comprises either an internship, a written report on a predetermined project in the framework of the student’s professional activity, or a research project in the form of a written thesis on a subject related to the programme.

Next edition of the Programme starts on 25 September 2019. The application deadline is still open. The candidacies are dealt with on a first come first served basis.
