The Center of Diplomacy and Finance
Geneva is a leading financial center and major European business hub, home to the headquarters of corporations and international banks. It also boasts an unparalleled concentration of international organizations, including the United Nations and the World Trade Organization. An ideal global destination for international conferences and negotiations, Geneva is the location of over 200 diplomatic missions and 119 financial institutions.
The city's central European location, only four kilometers from the French border, is only one hour by plane from most major European cities. This, along with its longstanding reputation for solid democracy and neutrality, have ensured Geneva’s unmatched status as a worldwide center of diplomacy.
Nestled between the Jura mountains to the west and the French Alps to the east and situated on one of Europe’s largest lake, Geneva is easily one of the most picturesque cities in Europe. The famous Swiss ski slopes are just a stone’s throw away giving plenty of opportunities for weekend jaunts to the pistes during the winter months.
Geneva is the second-largest city in Switzerland with a very high quality of life. It ranked 9th in Mercer’s 2019 Quality of Living rankings. It is also the most international city in Europe; 40% of its residents are international giving plenty of opportunities for networking. With three official languages, Geneva is as diverse as it is international and, while French is spoken predominantly, English is spoken almost everywhere.
