The MIDS program offers a unique and flexible environment in which to acquire the knowledge, skills, tools and the network needed to develop a career in international dispute settlement. Be in its On-Campus Section or in its Online one, students benefit from an outstanding and accessible faculty, a supportive staff, and a strong network of alumni. The MIDS has been one of the leading programs in international dispute settlement for over a decade.
The MIDS faculty comprises some of the most well-known practitioners and academics in international dispute settlement. The small size of the class allows for a close interaction with the professors.
The MIDS curriculum is broad in scope covering public and private dispute settlement mechanisms. Its diverse offer of types of courses, seminars and workshops provides a thorough understanding of international procedural law while at the same time allowing for deeper specialization in a particular area of interest.
The MIDS career services play a critical role. Since day one and throughout the academic year our staff looks after you. The services include group and individual coaching on career strategy, networking and interviewing skills, cv and cover letter drafting, and professional social media presence.
The MIDS Online Section now provides the opportunity to undertake the MIDS without necessarily having to be in Geneva. Only the pedagogy is adapted: it uses innovative teaching formats and technologies inspired by the best practices developed in recent years in order to adapt to the specificities of distance learning.
Life after the MIDS
