In the News: Webster Geneva and Global Degrees in ‘Swiss Style’

Webster University Geneva

Webster’s Geneva campus opened in 1978.

Webster University’s Geneva campus was profiled by Swiss Style magazine, “The Swiss Magazine for Leaders.”

The article, titled “Global Degrees,” quotes Webster Geneva’s Bob Spencer and Ron Daniel about Webster’s growth and mission and spotlights the Global Citizenship Program:

“Being a global citizen implies “a huge ability to deal with change, ambiguity, uncertainty; it also requires a deep understanding of other cultures, languages and traditions,” Spencer and Daniel point out. “We want our students to feel able to accept this ambiguity, novelty, and change without fear.”

[…]

“We are proud of the mix of nationalities here; (multiculturalism) permeates everything we do, the university curriculum, the way of teaching.”

With campuses in North America, Europe and Asia, Webster has been recognized as a leader in international education for more than 30 years. Its Study Abroad programs were ranked in the top 2 percent of the 1,600 colleges and universities surveyed in the “America’s Best Colleges” 2013 edition of U.S. News & World Report.

The Institute of International Education’s (IIE) annual Open Doors report ranked Webster ninth among all U.S. master’s degree-granting institutions for study abroad of a semester-long duration, and first in the same category among Midwestern institutions.
