Excelente inducción e inmersión al mundo de los Organismos Internacionales. Los temas elegidos son extremadamente apropiados y adecuadamente ordenados para el aprendizaje. El staff encargado de impartir las lecturas es de muy alto nivel e incentivan a quienes cursamos el programa a involucrarnos en la misión de los Organismos Internacionales. Ginebra es la capital del multilateralismo y la Universidad de Ginebra es el centro adecuado para profesionalizarnos en este tan importante asunto.

Very stimulating, educative and simple lecture format. I have learned a lot from this course practically than any other course or program of international relations/politics that I have undertaken. The course syllabus and content are relatable to the job descriptions at the United Nations that I have so far explored. Highly recommend for anyone looking to work in any international organization beyond the UNs itself. Thanks to the faculty members who have steered us throughout the course.

an informative beginner course for international management and provides one with knowledge of the inner workings of the United Nations and equips them with basic management skills that can be catered to both private sector and public organizations. The instructors are incredible and I learnt many insightful things. There should be an advance version of this course delving more in depth and of more duration which could be considered as an advanced MBA.

This was an excellent overview of the key dimensions of international organizations: structure, leadership, multi-sectoral partnerships, fundraising, and cause marketing. The instructors are accomplished practitioners who provide concrete examples of the guiding principles and theories.

I have a BA and MA in international relations/studies with rather political aspect so that the UN sectors/chapters were not new to me but I enjoyed learning about other aspects such as branding, fundraising and general new aspects from this course. Very interesting and refreshing. Good luck!

This course helped me in gaining knowledge in addition to my current degree. Some of the information was basic, however it created the base for what was to come in the following weeks. The most interesting part was week 6 regarding marketing, branding and fundraising. It gave me a new perspective on marketing strategies and I'm excited to learn more.

Un curso totalmente recomendado. Gracias a este curso aprendí sobre areas que nunca había estudiado antes, pero de las cuales hoy necesitaba un poco de orientación. Un curso completo y con profesores que explican muy bien y a detalle el contenido. No dudaría en tomar un nuevo curso con ellos.
