International Philanthropy

„This GIC Program was only for 10 days, it was more helpful than 10 months in USA.”

Jae-hak, Jung, Student of Hanyang University, Seoul, South Korea

Global Intensive Course GIC

There is a high need of deeper knowledge on philanthropy and sustainability - worldwide and especially in the emerging markets of South-East Asia. Mediating this knowhow is precisely the focus of the Swiss Philanthropy Academy.
In April 2015, a cooperation agreement between the Hanyang University in Seoul, South Korea, and the Swiss Philanthropy Academy was signed. Thereafter and for the first time in Europe, i.e. in Switzerland, a “Global Intensive Course in Corporate Social Responsibility and Philanthropy” with Hanyang students could be held in August.

Based on the success and demand this course was institutionalized.
