    DESCRIPTION

    International Trade is key in today’s globalized economy and it’s importance continue to grow. More and more companies, not just the multi-nationals, are looking to grow their customer base by expanding internationally.

    The IMSG has partnered with the world reference in trading qualifications, the London based CISI (Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment). We are the only non-UK school offering CISI based curriculum and a preparation for their qualifications.

    By the time you graduate in Trading & Finance, you will understand how international market work, how to analyze them and how to design trade strategies on a global level.

    Having taken a Bachelor of Sciences in Trading & Finance from the International Management School Geneva, and CISI qualifications, you can expect to find yourself a job in trade negotiations, international finance or import and export development, potentially anywhere in the world.

    PACE

    On years 1 & 2, the program is following a classical academic year rhythm. We do not have classes on Fridays, allowing our students to work that day if they need/want to.

    On year 3, the rhythm is organized in such a way that our students can work Part-Time, which paves the way for employment. Our Career & Development Department offers Career & Outplacement services for our students.

    If you follow the three years, you’ll earn 180 ECTS Credits.

    VALIDATION/ THESIS

    At the end of Year 3, the student will have to defend a Thesis which will carry on one of the subjects studied during the programme’s Major.
