About Webster University
For over 100 years, Webster University has served students from around the world in search of a first-class higher education. Webster University Geneva was the university’s first international location, and remains the most culturally diverse campus within the Webster worldwide network. The proximity of the ICEF program to the Swiss border gives access to Webster’s campus in Geneva, Switzerland. A local train commutes directly between Evian and the station adjacent to the Webster University Geneva campus.

Career advice, Alumni support, and Internship placement
Webster University in Geneva provides the tools and guidance to get the best possible start in life as an undergraduate or boost student’s networks and strengthen skills further through graduate programs. The University’s highly skilled internship and alumni department’s efforts have resulted in obtaining more internship offers than students available to fill the vast number of positions.
In Geneva since 1978, Webster University’s American-style campus is located in a park-like, secure and tranquil setting, a brief walk from Lake Leman, offering spectacular views of Mont Blanc. On campus, students will discover well-equipped classrooms, a library, computer labs, a cafeteria, and various staff offices (student affairs, academic advising, career services).
Undergraduate and Graduate Programs are available in various fields, including: Business Administration, Computer Science, Finance, Psychology, International Relations, Management, Media Studies, and Photography.
Webster University’s American style of teaching with a personalized and interactive approach thanks to small class sizes, combined with a broad range of programs and a worldwide network of campuses (including campuses in 18 U.S. states), all contribute to pursuing the University and students’ ambitions of excellence and academic achievement. Thanks to this partnership, ICEF student-athletes are able to pursue their passion for football and develop their skills as football players, while pursuing an International degree (recognized in Europe and in the US).
Webster University Geneva (est. 1978) can also help families of admitted students to activate the traditional federal student aid programs and/or the use of family 529 (tuition investment) plans, since it is a fully-recognized American institution (with a main campus in St. Louis, USA, est. in 1915).
