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

WHY STUDY GLOBAL FINANCE IN SWITZERLAND?

Combine your interest in ethical banking, sustainable finance, circular economy 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.
During a two-week excursion to Greece, you’ll gain insight about the recent international financial crisis and examine the impact Covid-19 had on the country’s financial system and economy. You’ll get a first-hand view of the recovery and state of society from Greek and international experts on the ground. You’ll also experience the richness of Greek culture, history, and cuisine.
