Since 2013, the Haute Ecole de Gestion de Genève (HEG) has been offering a unique degree program in International Business Management. This program, entirely taught in English, covers the fundamental business management topics, with an international and intercultural emphasis. The final year elective courses tackle more specific areas of international business that are of particular relevance to the Geneva professional environment. The Business Decision Support concentration, offered in the last year of this Bachelor program, covers various analysis and management methods such as Business Analysis, Design Thinking and Agility. Students acquire tools and apply them in a real-life project in a partner organization. They also prepare for the ECBA exam given by IIBA. Under the supervision of the program chair Prof. Alexandre Caboussat, this specialization course is led by Mrs. Alexandra Marcoin-Karacsonyi (coordinator) and Mrs. Chrystel Dayer (teaching assistant), along with a pool of experts providing different business approaches.
