UNITAR X Franklin's Agreement for the Master of Science

UNITAR X Franklin's Agreement for the Master of Science

On February 2, 2024, Franklin University Switzerland signed an agreement with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR),  marking a significant step forward in the advancement of global  education in international management. This collaboration is set to  enrich Franklin’s Master of Science in International Management program  by incorporating UNITAR's expertise, particularly in sustainable development.

The Master of Science in International Management is a one-year graduate program designed to provide a comprehensive  business education. It is distinct for its transdisciplinary  methodology, which is deeply rooted in the liberal arts tradition.  This approach ensures that students receive a holistic management  training, which not only focuses on cutting-edge theories and practices  but also emphasizes a personalized teaching methodology that effectively  bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical  application.

The partnership with UNITAR introduces a unique component to the program. A  dedicated course on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), designed and  delivered by the UNITAR Division for Prosperity, will be a key feature  of this collaboration. This course aims to equip students with a  deep understanding of sustainability issues and their impact on global  business practices. Furthermore, students pursuing the Business and  Sustainability track will have the opportunity to engage directly with  the United Nations system through a capstone project supervised by UNITAR.  This practical experience is designed to prepare students for the  challenges of promoting sustainability within a business context.

This initiative not only enhances the academic offerings of Franklin  University Switzerland but also aligns with UNITAR's mission to develop  capacities to enhance global decision-making and support country-level action for shaping a better future.

To learn more about this exciting partnership and the Master of  Science in International Management program, including detailed  information on the curriculum and admissions process, interested  students are encouraged to attend the upcoming webinar on March 20, 2024,  jointly hosted by UNITAR and Franklin University Switzerland.

This  virtual event aims at promoting the program and providing prospective  students with an in-depth look at what they can expect, learning from  alumni and current students’ experiences.
