Our Professional Partners


Codific is a software engineering firm whose promising software engineering interns team up with Geneva Business School students to build digital products and launch projects.

We selected the most talented students at the Geneva Business School to start an internship with us. Their job is to analyse their respective markets, look for use cases for the Videolab product and build a network of opinion leaders at the human side of healthcare education. Oscar and Daniel have hit the floor running and are quickly becoming experts in the field by interviewing the leading voices. We see a bright future for the Barcelona office and for the careers of our team members both at Codific and beyond. – Dag Flachet

Duolingo English Test

Due to disruptions to freedom of movement after COVID-19, many International students planning their post-high school study are finding it difficult to attend exam centers. With over 1 billion students affected by the global pandemic, tertiary application processes have been forced online or postponed. We are pleased to offer the Duolingo English Test (DET), as an alternative to IELTS or TOEFL, for those who want to take it.

Duolingo offers an affordable and efficient solution for those struggling to reach an exam center due to lockdown conditions in their home country. The test can be taken at home, under exam conditions, and results are received within 48 hours.

In order to accept International student’s applications for tertiary admission at Geneva Business School we require official IELTS or TOEFL English certification results as follows:

  • For Bachelor’s TOEFL: 70 / IELTS: 6.0 / DET 95 – 100
  • For Master’s and MBA TOEFL: 74 / IELTS: 6.5 / DET 105 – 110
  • For DBA TOEFL: 85 / IELTS: 7.0 / DET 115 – 120

A full range of equivalent results for the Duolingo English Test can be found on this handy comparison table.

Geneva Business School now accepts the DET for applications for Bachelor’s, Master’s, MBAs, and DBAs, as an alternative to IELTS, TOEFL, or equivalent tests. All you need to take the test, is a computer, a webcam, a microphone, and an internet connection. You will also need a quiet, well-lit room and about 60 minutes of privacy.

Nozama Green

Nozama Green and Geneva Business School have teamed up to reduce waste at school and educate our staff and students to be responsible consumers at home.

Nozama Green, a Barcelona based startup is making responsible consumption and recycling of everyday products as simple as placing an Amazon order. Nozama or Amazon spelled backward, is flipping the way you consume basic daily household products on its head, using an app, the circular economy, and a bicycle.

Nozama delivers groceries ordered via their app and collects your recycling to sort at their recycling plant and sell on to become inputs for new products within a circular end-to-end service. Nozama only sells products that can be recycled so their customers have the power to consume responsibly, knowing that their purchases will not have a negative environmental impact from their daily consumption.

Since COVID-19 forced everyone indoors, Nozama’s business has grown exponentially. They now service the entire Barcelona province, having started from just a small radius in the city center. This service not only addresses the need for home-delivered groceries, but also that even in a crisis we must not forget to live sustainably, being mindful of waste, and do our part for the environment.

Over the past year, the Barcelona Campus of Geneva Business School has been ordering supplies for our campus, office kitchen, and catering for events. Items such as tea and recyclable coffee pods, pantry staples, and cleaning products arrive weekly from Nozama, who deliver everything on foot, electric scooter, bike, or electric motorcycle and also pick up the packaging when it is used. Nozama Green then sorts and distributes the recyclable elements to recycling plants where it is used to make new items.


Higher education institutions need to become more agile to stay relevant in today’s fast-paced world. Geneva Business School achieves this agility by offering access to continually updated online courses on the latest skills in real-time. If there is a new digital technology release or trend, Professors can quickly tap into the world’s leading experts online to enrich the curriculum. 

Using Udemy, our faculty design 12-week blended learning courses by integrating pre-session online classes with in-classroom discussion and project-based activities. By giving students a ‘warm-up’ before delving into new topics, these classes encourage active learning, and students begin to engage immediately with new concepts.

Versus Virus Startup Incubator

The Versus Virus Hackathon was held to connect like-minded people and organizations all over Switzerland to develop, scale, and celebrate solutions to the COVID-19 crisis.

Successful competitors in the program were given initial funding for their startup ideas, including two Geneva Business School students from the Geneva Campus, who were involved in a team project, Be Local Hero, a digital platform designed to connect small businesses with local consumers.

The incubator has been successfully launching projects that were funded after the first round of hackathons. Geneva Business School has proudly been an implementing partner in the incubator under the guidance of Biliana Vassileva, an instructor of Innovation and Design Thinking from our Geneva campus.
