Geneva is the historic center of international cooperation and is home to the United Nations, other major international organizations, numerous multi-national corporations, and a vibrant financial and trading center. When it comes to recreation, the Alps and the Lake Geneva region offer some of the best sporting terrain in the world -- right at your doorstep. Moreover, Geneva is situated in the heart of Europe so it is easy to immerse yourself in the culture of other European cities, all accessible in less than two hours by plane.
Webster University opened its first European campus in Geneva in 1978 and today Webster University Geneva is the largest campus outside of the United States where 670 students from over 90 countries come together in a community of learners engaged by a faculty representing 25 nations.

The secure and tranquil setting is a brief walk from Lake Leman and affords spectacular views of Mont Blanc. Both train and bus service are available immediately adjacent to the campus.
