University of Zurich

 

Pleased to announce  UZH International Summer Schools 2021 (virtual edition), which will take place 4 - 23 July 2021. Each program offers 6 ECTS credits and is open to Bachelor and Master students from all subject areas.

We delivered our summer schools online in 2020 due to the global pandemic. The students' feedback was overwhelmingly positive: 95% of the students were highly satisfied with the organization of our programs and 93% particularly liked the multidisciplinary approach of the summer schools. Building on this invaluable experience and given that there are likely still some travel restrictions in place, we decided to go online again in summer 2021.

We encourage your students to apply to us directly: Application is now open and will close on 25 April 2021. To apply, students should first complete our registration form. The 5 easy steps of our new application process are listed on our brand new website www.summerschools.uzh.ch

Programs on offer include:

Deep Dive into Blockchain - Linking Economics, Technology and Law
For a full understanding of Blockchain, with all its implications and potential for application in practice, it is absolutely crucial to look at it from a multidisciplinary perspective. In this Summer School, students will understand the three key pillars of blockchain systems, namely the technology, the economics and the legal aspects behind it. Building on this, they will then explore other fields of application, such as forensics and data analytics. This program is highly interactive, with hands-on practice sessions incorporating the most advanced and promising blockchain-based platforms.
Tuition Fee: 1,500 Swiss Francs

 
 
Finance for the Future: Investments, Sustainable Finance and FinTech
This Summer School will focus on the past, present and future development of the Swiss financial system and wealth management in Switzerland. Students will enhance their knowledge in macroeconomics and finance. Furthermore, they will learn about the most recent and promising trends in FinTech and Sustainable Finance, and will apply their gained knowledge in a portfolio management game. This program not only offers the unique opportunity to get insights by leading experts in academia and business, but also to explore Zurich - one of the most important financial centers in the world.
Tuition Fee: 1,500 Swiss Francs


Leadership in the Future of Work
From large corporations to government, international organizations and renowned academic institutions - everyone wants to know what the future of work will bring. And not few claim that they already do. But which forecasts and predictions really hold? How can we distinguish substance from noise? Which topics really matter? And what actions can or should we take in our own lives to create the version of the future that we actually want? This Summer School explores the future of work from a range of different angles and perspectives and offers students a chance to reflect on their own role as future leaders. With a mix of instruction and hands-on exercises, students will discover ways to better understand, prepare for, and ultimately shape the future of work.
Tuition Fee: 1,500 Swiss Francs


What Defines a Country's Success? Switzerland's Experience in Comparison
This Summer School looks at the development of Switzerland in comparison with other successful small countries. Students will explore singularities, similarities and remarkable differences, which will help them to understand whether ther is one recipe for political survival and economic success, or if there are many different development paths. The course will examine which historical, sociological and political factors have to be taken into account when explaining a country's success. This will also help to understand why countries react differently to crises such as the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
Tuition Fee: 1,500 Swiss Francs
