Accreditation, diploma recognition, ranking

The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies is an institution of higher education, accredited by the Swiss government and receives subsidies from the Swiss Confederation and the canton of Geneva. Consequently, our master and doctoral degrees are recognised both at the national level and internationally.

As the Institute exclusively offers Masters and PhD programmes, it is not included in international rankings and league tables. It enjoys a worldwide reputation in international circles.
