Terrible university
Torgeir H
Switzerland, Graduate
Overall
The academics itself is actually good. The staff also. What makes this a truly terrible university is the student community. It is full of SJWs who talk about others behind their back. I was out in Geneva a while after I graduated and overheard two arrogant girls shit talking some dude with a passion so I went over and said "do you by any chance study at the graduate Institute?". They looked at me like they were the lannisters and I was some working class scum who had no business talking with the likes of them and answered that they did in fact study there. Rest my case. 

Also the degree is useless  in the labour  market.

Graduate Institute - Geneva
Vincent B
Hungary, Graduate
Overall
his school is highly reputable in the diplomatic academic and professional sphere. It's location in Geneva gives the student an advantageous exposure to institutions involved in diplomacy and general international affairs. This can open a lot of doors for someone interested in making a career in such institutions.
