University of Geneva Ranking

The University of Geneva ranking in the GPA system is Top 50 / Tier 2.

There are several universities using “Geneva” in the name, in part because of the immediate name recognition and reputation effect associated with the Swiss city. Geneva is a major international center owing to the presence of many international organizations including the United Nations. The University of Geneva is the original university, established in 1559 by the Christian Protestant reformer John Calvin. At least 40% of the students come from foreign countries.

The institution had a understated web presence which affected perception and GPA ranking.
