About Geneva

Spend your summer in Geneva, a world-renowned city in the heart of Europe!

"Unless you decide to work for an organization such as the United Nations, which lies a few kilometers from the Webster Geneva campus, I suspect it could be a long time before you will have a chance to experience such a diversity of colleagues."  --Ron Daniel, Webster Geneva, Academic Director 

    • Geneva is located in the western, French-speaking part of Switzerland, in the center of Europe.  The population of the city of Geneva is 200,000, half of which are non-Swiss who are from all over the world.
    • Geneva has been on the map since Roman times.  Today, the city is home to the United Nations, hundreds of international organizations and countless multi-national corporations.
    • The campus is a five minute drive from France and two hours from Italy.  The cost to fly round-trip from Geneva to most European cities is roughly $100.
    • Summers in Geneva are warm and sunny, allowing you to take full advantage of activities around Lake Geneva and the Alps.  Europe's highest peak, the Mont Blanc, is just a few miles away.
    • Numerous open air concerts and music festivals are held in the Geneva region over the summer (e.g., Caribana Music Festival http://www.caribana-festival.ch/en, Fête de la Musique https://ww.ville-ge.ch/culture/fm/).  Geneva is also home to museums, covering a range of subjects:  http://www.geneva.info/museums/.
    • Most people in Geneva speak several languages including English.  This characteristic, combined with a well developed public transportation system, makes getting around the city extremely easy.
