One Residential week in Geneva

Geneva is the global hub for diplomacy and banking, making it the ideal place for immersion in international trade. Face-to-face sessions here give our students invaluable opportunities to gain real-world experience and insight from industry experts. They have the chance to interact with international trading firms, banks, insurance companies, law firms, accounting firms, forwarding agents and inspection and verification companies—not to mention international organizations such as the International Trade Center, World Trade Organization, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, International Monetary Fund and International Law Commission, among many others.

The Blended Learning Format

IE’s Blended Methodology takes a unique, multi-directional approach to education, combining technology, methodology and the expertise of our exceptional faculty.

With the virtual campus, students get a challenging and highly interactive educational experience. The well-structured, faculty-led sessions fit into the modern professional’s busy schedule and can be accessed anywhere there is an internet connection. Engage with other global professionals in synchronous and asynchronous sessions including interactive small groups where students work on real-world, industry-based case studies. Our flexible, dynamic classroom facilitates debate, encourages participation and results in real-time implementation of new tools and concepts—all the while widening your ever-expanding global network.

The two face-to-face periods that bookend the whole program in Madrid, in addition to the immersion in Geneva amount to an intensive 5 to 8-day immersion in transformational learning. Through dynamic in-class interaction with both professors and classmates, you will participate in seminars, forums, workshops and conferences. Here, you work to develop the all-important skills that require physical presence, honing your managerial abilities while acquiring new industry techniques and insights.
