About Us

SWISS UMEF UNIVERSITY was founded in Geneva on April 26, 1984 by Professor Marc-François Maret, previously known as Institut Supérieur de Gestion et Communication (ISGC), with the aim of developing managers with advanced leadership skills in a complex work environment.


UMEF is compatible with the Bologna European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) and the European Space for Higher Education norms, has a programme accreditation service, International Accreditation Council on Business Education (IACBE) and is certified by EduQua. Among these three, IACBE is recognised by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), the largest accreditation organisation in the USA that specialises in higher education quality. UMEF is in the final stages of applying for Accreditation Council for Business School Programs (ACBSP) accreditation.
