The Master's degree in Innovation, Human Development and Sustainability (MSc IHDS) stems from a partnership between the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and organizations from International Geneva in the framework of the implementation of the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This highly multidisciplinary Master's degree aims to train students to analyze problems and identify innovative solutions in terms of the governance of sustainability. The Master's degree comprises a high proportion of hands on teaching courses (project workshops), but also fundamental courses on sustainable development in all its dimensions (social, economic, and environmental).
