The GSEM created the Geneva Center for Business and Human Rights (GCBHR), first Human Rights Center at a business school in Europe, to develop business models that allow profits and principles to coexist.

The Center was officially launched on 25th November, in presence of Prof. Yves Flückiger, Rector of the University of Geneva, Prof. Marcelo Olarreaga, Dean of the GSEM, Prof. Michael H. Posner, Director of the Center for Business and Human Rights at the New York University Stern School of Business, and Prof. Dorothée Baumann-Pauly, Director of the GCBHR. More than a hundred guests attended the celebrations.

Competence Center of the GSEM, the GCBHR works with companies to identify business models that enable profits and principles to co-exist. It offers companies a safe space to discuss pressing human rights challenges and train future leaders to develop and integrate human rights standards in their respective industry contexts.
