EUCLID’s online MBA in International Organizations is the only Master’s level degree program offered by an institution that is itself an intergovernmental treaty-based institution (EUCLID). Moreover, EUCLID is an academic partner of other intergovernmental organizations lacking degree-granting authority such as LLPI and CAFRAD. Remarkably, EUCLID’s associated MBA (Sustainable Development) was ranked #1 in 2016.

Historically, EUCLID grew out of the cooperation between universities and the International Organization for Sustainable Development (IOSD) which was the original SD international organization and which is now a EUCLID-affiliated institute.

This master’s degree program is officially used by senior civil servants over 4 continents. It is also highly relevant to managers and executives working for multinational companies.

EUCLID’s MBAIO offers a strong MBA core capped with high-level courses covering international relations and organizations, international law, etc. Graduates can expect to complete the program transformed and enhanced in their ability to make a difference in global governance.

Academic Presentation

International organizations play a vital role in today’s global and complex international scene. The United Nations is the most visible member of the vast family that encompasses treaty-based intergovernmental bodies as well as thousands of international non-governmental organizations such as the Red Cross, Doctors with Borders, WorldVision, CARE, etc. The employment opportunities are vast, exciting and geographically diverse.

The MBAIO is the program you need to obtain the skills necessary to become a desirable and valuable asset for employment with an international organization: you will received advanced training in global economics, management and business practice with our EUCLID MBA Core modules. You will also study diplomacy, international law, sustainable development and select courses from a broad choice of electives.

Although spending 2 years in Geneva or Washington DC is exciting and possibly the best approach for those who can take the campus-based route, the EUCLID program has the advantage of being offered completely online, at a very low tuition designed to make international careers possible for residents to developing countries.


Within certain parameters, the EUCLID Online MBA in International Organizations is customizable, with elective courses focusing on:

  • Global Business Leadership
  • Management and Marketing applicable to NGOs and IGOs
  • Project Management within IOs
  • IO role in Sustainable Economic Development
  • Governance and leadership of Non-governmental organizations (NGOs)
  • International Law and Treaty Law for IGOs and NGOs.



Applicants should have a relevant Bachelor’s degree issued by an institution listed in the UNESCO-IAU handbook/database or otherwise duly recognized/accredited. Similar or related backgrounds with adequate professional experience may be considered for Government-sponsored applicants (who are already government staff) who may be admitted without the required educational credential if their level of education and experience is deemed sufficient. EUCLID may require these participants to complete bridge courses prior to enrolling in the program. Fluency in English (spoken and written) is required and will be tested. Students are expected to be in a position to dedicate 10 to 15 effective hours of study on a weekly basis.
