Switzerland: Banking, Finance, and Social Responsibility

From its base in Nyon and Geneva, this program provides a thorough background in international banking and finance through a social justice lens using an experiential, case study approach. The program addresses the causes and implications of the unstable global financial economy, alternative systems of intermediation, and the implications of financial crises on economies through classroom seminars and through lectures and briefings at financial and banking institutions and NGOs. A three-week excursion to Greece gives you the opportunity to experience Greek culture, history, and cuisine while examining the impact of the recent economic crisis on the financial system there. You can choose to conduct an independent study project in finance or an internship in finance. You can also choose to take two thematic seminars or one thematic seminar and three credits of French language study.
