A WORD FROM THE HEADS OF DEPARTMENT
“As a third year Bachelor student in international relations, I wanted to join the associative world before the beginning of my Master’s degree. The SDSA appeared to me as an evident choice, because of its professionalizing aspect and its privileged access to the diplomatic world. Moreover, the association offers a wide range of activities in order to discover the field of international relations, a field in which I am very interested. Thus, I joined the Human Resources department which immediately interested me because it allows me to put into practice several of my skills, notably organization, and to develop new ones, such as conducting an interview. Finally, this department allows me to meet the members of the association with whom I enjoy exchanging.”
“As a student of the Russia-Central Europe Master’s program and coming from a family with multiple origins, I joined the SDSA to become in touch with the world of diplomacy. International and diplomatic relations between countries, as well as their complexity, is a field in which I have always wanted to invest myself, an interest reinforced by my mastery of several foreign languages.
Having grown up in Geneva, a centre of international diplomacy, my wish is to invest myself professionally in this field. I joined the Human Resources department because its role, essential to the smooth running of the association, allows me to put into practice and develop several skills, such as organization or mediation between members. Assiduous and a good listener, I put all my qualities at the service of this department.”
“As a student of Psychology and having had the benefit of an intercultural education, I became involved in the associative sector at a very early age, with the wish to understand the complexity of human relationships across borders.
Convinced that multidisciplinarity is the source of success through its ability to enrich knowledge, the SDSA was the bridge that enabled me to combine my experience with the fields of international, humanitarian and political relations through diplomacy.
This collaboration is a new challenge that I am enthusiastically taking up, enabling me to manage intra-company relations at various levels, conduct recruitment interviews and put my daily organizational rigor to the test.
As the Human Resources department is an obvious place for direct relational contact, I’m happy to invest 200% of my time in this association full of dreamers ready to take action, to grasp every challenge and to take care of each and every one of its members.”

“As an International Relations student with a great passion for diplomacy, I joined the SDSA with the aim of gaining professional experience outside my courses in the various departments available. This experience will enable me to clarify a number of doubts linked to my future and my integration into the world of diplomacy. I’ve therefore decided to move into the human resources department, since administrative tasks and human contact appeal to me.”
“As a Bachelor’s student in International Relations, I’ve always had a strong interest in diplomacy and international affairs in general. Being part of an association such as the SDSA is for me the ideal opportunity to actively educate and professionalize myself in a framework in line with my studies, while meeting many students with similar interests to mine.
I decided to join the Human Resources department with the aim of deepening my experience in this field, but also because it allows me to establish privileged contact with the other members of the association.”
