Fees and Expenses

Educational & Living Expenses

A quality MBA education represents a significant investment of time, effort and money, both on the part of the school and that of the student.  The University of Geneva assumes most of these costs, as reflected in our comparatively low tuition fees. Additional support may be provided in the form of scholarships.

To help you estimate financial obligations required to attend the International Organizations MBA programme, the following estimated budget is provided for the academic year indicated. The budget includes educational expenses for the whole program and an estimate of the living expenses per month. If you intend to stay in Geneva for your internship, then you should allow for additional expenses. Tuition and fees are subject to change each year.
