Alumni Tuesdays

Each year we hold four Alumni Tuesdays. These fun, themed evenings put the spotlight on a distinguished UNIGE alumna or alumnus.

Each evening is split into two parts. First, there is a talk by a highly regarded alumna or alumnus. Guest speakers have included, among others, Ruth Dreifuss, former Swiss Federal Councillor and President of Switzerland; Ulrich Lehner, Switzerland’s representative to the OECD; the writer Joël Dicker; and director Frédéric Mermoud.

The evenings finish with a Q&A session and drinks. This is a fun way to build your network, often in the plush Salons.

Guest speakers have included:

Alumni trips & exhibition tours

We organize a variety of trips and exhibition tours for our members, featuring a UNIGE researcher or professors as your guide. The aim is to provide cultural and educational experiences that provide members with an opportunity to network with other Alumni. They are also a chance for other members of the UNIGE community to share their knowledge and know-how.

Alumni trips

Our trips may vary in duration and geographical distance, and they can cover anything from culture and history to natural phenomena and research facilities. Please note that places for these trips are limited.

You can find out more about each destination by clicking on the link in the right column.

Exhibition tours

We regularly organize tours of cultural exhibitions or research facilities, either with a UNIGE professor or another expert. The CERN, the Fondation Gianadda, the MEG (Musée d’ethnographie de Genève) and the Physiscope, not to mention the UNIGE gallery, are just some of our regular destinations.

Events around the world

Welcome, bienvenidos, huān yíng! Over the years, the Alumni UNIGE network has also grown outside Switzerland, with events, meetings and talks taking place further afield. When we don’t have our own local chapter, we work in partnership with Swiss representations, embassies, chambers of commerce and Swissnex. For instance, we regularly hold events in Japan and Québec, and have also organized meetups in Paris, Mexico, Hong Kong and São Paulo.
