SIT Study Abroad Switzerland: Banking, Finance, and Social Responsibility

 

Discover the dynamic fusion of macroeconomics and global finance with social responsibility and sustainable business in Switzerland.

WHY STUDY ABROAD IN SWITZERLAND?

Combine your interest in ethical banking, sustainable finance, circular economy, artificial intelligence, and cryptocurrencies in Geneva and Switzerland, one of the world’s leading financial centers and a major international hub for international organizations and NGOs. While learning about global finance from a socially responsible and sustainable business perspective and alternative financial systems and intermediation, you’ll build networks with experts at leading financial institutions, nongovernmental organizations, universities and think-tanks. You’ll have the option to intern with a sustainable development company, start-up, or intergovernmental organization or a Swiss or international NGO or conduct research in sustainable development and finance, ethical banking, impact investing, or cryptocurrencies.
