Our Vision:

Our vision is to be among the premier choices of excellence in tertiary education as a private university in Geneva.

Mission:

To fulfil this mission, we aim to do the following:

  • Provide higher education in an environment that focuses on all dimensions of applied learning – knowledge, understanding, skills, behaviours, values and attitudes.

  • Create and disseminate knowledge regarding important issues through published research, innovative learning experiences and involvement with the constituents we serve.

  • Serve society through an independent exchange of ideas and practices.

Values:

Based on Swiss values, UMEF contributes to sustainable societal development through the exchange of knowledge.

Our values include respect for the individual, diversity, knowledge and thinking modes. At UMEF, we fight against all forms of discrimination - ethnic, religious, social, sexual or otherwise. This applies to both the accomplishment of teaching and completing research tasks as well as to relationships within our university.
