A partnership with academia

Building knowledge for trade and development



Swiss Vi member, the World Trade Institute (WTI) of the University of Bern, is offering one Vi member a scholarship to take part in this year's edition of its Masters of International Law and Economics.

The 34-week programme takes a multidisciplinary approach with a strong applied perspective to the study of international trade. The course is set to begin in September.


The scholarship waives the CHF 30000 tuition for the course. However, the selected candidate will be responsible for the costs of travel as well as for living expenses (housing, food, health insurance costs, etc.) estimated between CHF 1200-1500 per month for the 10 months of the programme. 

Should the selected candidate be from a Least Developed Country, the Virtual Institute, through its Finland fund for LDC activities, will cover air transport and contribute a small stipend toward living costs.

Deadline for applications is March 15.
