A recognized expert in finance and the William H. Seward Endowed Chair in Finance at the University of Alaska, Anchorage, Dr. John R. Nofsinger has taught at institutions in China, New Zealand, and Greece. Dr. John R. Nofsinger also served as a visiting professor at Cesar Ritz College in Switzerland, some two hours east of Geneva.

Situated between the Alps and the Jura Mountains, Geneva is one of the most picturesque and culturally rich destinations in Switzerland.

Located on top of a hill near the Place du Bourg-de-Four and the Cathédrale Saint-Pierre, Geneva’s Old Town is perhaps the most beautiful part of the city. Visitors experience vintage architecture, restaurants, cafés, and shopping boutiques. Areas beneath the cathedral also give history buffs a glimpse into Geneva’s past.

Within walking distance of the Old Town’s attractions is the Reformation Wall, which has been integrated into Geneva’s city walls. The Reformation Wall comprises many carvings and statues of individuals and events that played a vital role in the Protestant Reformation movement.
