Advocates ready to make a difference


On Friday September 23 another large group of students received their Executive Certificate in Advocacy in International Affairs.

They will join their alumni in positions in international organisations and enterprises. The 2016 cohort included an impressive mix of students from all parts of the world with senior roles in both companies and organisations. The graduation ceremony (picture) marked a fine end to the 2016 session.

The Leidar team lead by Dr. Lukasz Bochenek is proud to partner with the Graduate Institute in Geneva on delivering the advocacy course, and we are now getting ready for the 2017 edition. The program will soon be announced and you can find more information about it here.

The Graduate Institute of International and Development studies is a leading institution of research and higher education dedicated to the study of world affairs and located in the heart of International Geneva. The degree granting program Advocacy in International Affairs is a part-time executive education programme: 2 face-to-face modules of 9 days each in Geneva. It offers a blend of in-depth analysis of global issues with applied practice (methodologies and leadership skills); interactive, team-oriented learning.

Participants receive a degree: Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in the Swiss Higher Education System and alumni status at the Graduate Institute. The CAS can now be combined with other Executive programs and upgraded to an Executive Master.  We believe the program gives unique insights into how to integrate engagement across all your targets and stakeholders.
