On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development - adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at an historic UN Summit - officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.
On January 16th, President Xi Jinping of China and the President Doris Leuthard of the Swiss Confederation jointly witnessed the signing of the memorandum between Tsinghua University and the University of Geneva (UniGe) on comprehensive cooperation on SDGs. During the roundtable, President Qiu Yong of Tsinghua University and President Yves Flückiger of the University of Geneva signed an agreement on a dual Master of Public Policy for Sustainable Development Goals (MPP-SDG) .
This program can be started either at Tsinghua University or the University of Geneva, depending on where the student registers first. Tsinghua University delivers a Master of Public Administration (MPA), organised by the School of Public Policy and Management (SPPM) and called Master of Public Policy for Sustainable Development Goals (MPP-SDG). The University of Geneva delivers a highly interdisciplinary Master of Science (M.Sc.) hosted by the Geneva School of Social Sciences (G3S), the Master in Innovation, Human Development and Sustainability (MIHDS).
Upon successful completion of the dual degree requirements, international students will receive one master degree from each party: the degree “Master of Public Administration” of Tsinghua University and the degree “Master of Science” of the University of Geneva.
