Geneva Campus to kick off with the ICEF 

The International Center of European Football in Switzerland will partner with Geneva Business School in 2020

We are very excited to announce a new academic partnership with the International Center of European Football (ICEF). From September we will be offering Bachelor’s programs with a specialization in either Sport’s Management or International Management to their elite athletes.

The ICEF is the official football institution of Switzerland providing the professional training and preparation required to play at the highest level of football in the world. The programs and facilities are designed to foster and expertly develop high-potential football players with a clearly-defined goal: to kickstart their professional football careers. Student-athletes receive individualized development and exposure opportunities to top professional organizations and prestigious educational institutions around the world. 

The ICEF is a unique professional soccer academy as it pays as much attention to the academic program as to their technical program, to allow student-athletes to develop the tools that will allow them to be capable of succeeding on and off the field. 

Discipline and routine are essential to the success of these athletes and as such, we are tailoring their daily schedules to accommodate their training. ICEF student-athletes will complete their degrees over four years, attending classes from 09:00 to 13:00, allowing for their rigorous training program in the afternoons. The academy is located just over the French border, just 40 minutes door to door by train from our Geneva campus.

Academic partnerships are as exciting for us as our students as they give the school a chance to offer our programs to high-achieving students who want to plan for a bright future while pursuing their passions.

We look forward to welcoming the first applicants to our Geneva Campus later this year.
