Financial Aid / Scholarships

International Organizations MBA Merit Scholarships
The University of Geneva and its partners will be offering a maximum of 2 partial scholarships to outstanding students accepted into our International Organizations MBA programme. Scholarships are based on a combination of academic merit, financial need, and availability of funds. These scholarships are reserved for nationals of developing countries and are only given to first round applicants (by the 15 November deadline).

The United Nations University (UNU) Fellowship
The University of Geneva and UNU share a strong commitment to enhancing the capacity of individuals and institutions in developing countries. To demonstrate its commitment to the UNU’s capacity-development focus, the University of Geneva is offering one UNU fellowship – which covers full tuition – to a qualified candidate. This only covers for tuition fees and no other expense.   The UNU Fellowship is  reserved for mid-career professionals from developing countries, who would be expected to apply and disseminate their newly acquired knowledge and skills in promoting the socio-economic development of their own and other developing countries. This scholarship is reserved for nationals of developing countries and is only given to first round applicants (by the 15 November deadline).

Candidates who wish to be considered for the IO-MBA UNU Fellowship or an IO-MBA Merit Scholarship should submit their completed application by the 15 November applications deadline. No other application process is necessary to be considered for these awards; please just indicate on your online application your eligibility (must be from a developing country) and wish to be considered, and we will do the rest.
