About the GTI

Stemming from a partnership between the University of Geneva and Tsinghua University, the Geneva Tsinghua Initiative provides innovative education programs that address the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a practical, hands-on way. The different programs involve students and professionals who spend part of their time in Geneva, working directly with the International Organizations there, and part in Beijing and Shenzhen, two of China’s most dynamic and entrepreneurial environments.


The GTI nurtures young  innovators who want to solve major SDG-based societal challenges.


The GTI brings together the best of two worlds: International Geneva and Entrepreneurial China.


The GTI attracts talents from around the globe to  work on interdisciplinary challenges with expert mentorship from IOs.
