The International University in Geneva has reached a new milestone. The university is now accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC) as an Independent Higher Education Institution. This institutional accreditation is awarded as a mark of quality, by an independent and well established national body, which is recognised internationally. The British Accreditation Council (BAC) is referenced with the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR). With this new accreditation and the existing accreditations in the United States (ACBSP and IACBE), the University reinforces its position as a leading institution of higher learning.
Model United Nations
A delegation of IUG students composed of international relations students from the Bachelor and Master programs took part in the Harvard World Model United Nations (MUN) conference in Montreal, Canada, in March 2017. Through participation in various United Nations and international organizations committees, IUG students had the opportunity to investigate and simulate diplomatic negotiations currently taking place in international fora and put into practice what they have learnt in class.
