Founded in April 1984 by Professor Marc François Maret, SWISS UMEF UNIVERSITY (UMEF), formerly known as ISGC (Institut Supérieur de Gestion et Communication) is a private university.
UMEF has a long track record of training a large body of students who originated from all continents and who have had, since graduation, highly successful careers. Furthermore, UMEF has strongly supported its alumni to assist them in developing outstanding careers or to be highly successful actors in their chosen fields.
UMEF operates campuses in three continents – Europe, Africa and Asia – and its contribution to the development of the citizens of these countries has been recognised with prizes and appreciations in several countries.
UMEF strictly applies the Bologna system, and it is accredited by IACBE, EduQua and ASIC. It is also a member of several other accreditation bodies.
UMEF has decided to be in historic continuity of Europe’s outstanding university background and, thus, its campus is located in a 15th-century castle in Geneva.
