MIC Operational Director
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” (Nelson Mandela)
Eugenia Converso is Operational Director for the MAS in Intercultural Communication. She will be your contact person from the beginning throughout your graduation, making sure you will complete your curriculum successfully and working hard to guarantee the quality of the program as well as students’ care.
Born and raised in Lausanne, the French-speaking area of Switzerland, close to the United Nations Geneva Office, Eugenia has been exposed to multi-culturalism her whole life. Her greatest interest lies in Intercultural Communication, Migration and Integration, Social and Gender Equality, Human Rights and the Global Development Agenda. She truly believes that intercultural communication competence can have an impact on high-level international relations and that the world needs it more than ever.
Eugenia holds an M.Sc. in Business and Institutional Communication and a MAS in Intercultural Communication from USI. She worked in the private sector before returning to the area she loves most: Education and Intercultural Relations.
At the MIC I am in charge of promoting our program worldwide. Also, during the sessions, I help participants from documents request to IT problems and local tips. I am graduated from USI’s Bachelor in Communication Sciences, and I am now doing my final thesis at the Master in Communications, Management, and Health at USI. My interest is in the use of social media for health promotion and community development.
