In 1995, IFGP (Institut de Formation en Gestion du Patrimoine) was established to provide instructions to mainly local Swiss private bankers. As demands for global banking and finance outpaced the local demands, University of Finance was created in 2001 to provide education in international banking and finance. As our strategic positioning shifted, the name was changed in 2010 to Geneva Business School (GBS) to emphasize the importance of our location, specialty, and specificity.
From 2012, GBS began a comprehensive expansion strategy to open new campuses in the most strategically viable regions in the world. At the current time, in addition to our main campus in Geneva, we have two other campuses in Barcelona and Moscow.
