Course Objectives

Why a Master in Commodity Trading at the University of Geneva?


In the past years, Geneva has become the world's most important center for physical trading of commodities. Geneva offers a unique plattform for the deliberation and improvement of the international management of commodities. The University can therefore play an active role in this environment.


The Geneva School of Economics and Management (GSEM) of the University of Geneva is striving to reinforce the collaboration between economic sectors and internationally renowed academic institutions, with the objective of bridging the gap between innovative research output and its use in the society.


The aim of this master is to match as closely as possible the needs of the industry with the excellence of academic education. At the academic level, the fundamental questions to be addressed are how will the world citizen be fed, heated, dressed, given job opportunities etc... in an efficient and ethical economic environment in the near future? This obviously implies research competences in management, economics, environmental sciences, regulations and also, more inderctly, in data science.
