As a research-based business university, the HSG gives students and participants in executive education a broad spectrum of practical knowledge. An interdisciplinary approach and a holistic perspective are some of the University of St.Gallen’s guiding principles – our wide range of opportunities places equal emphasis on the fields of management, technology and law. The internationally recognised St.Gallen Management Model stems from a long tradition; the HSG promotes the systematic networking of all disciplines in order to implement its interdisciplinary and integrative approach to teaching management successfully.
Responsible and committed – as a university-level educational institution, the University of St.Gallen’s academic interests revolve around people and society. Our faculty unites expertise and a consistent orientation towards the applicability of scientific knowledge in a way highly relevant to real-world practice. Responsible business culture, ecological sustainability and new concepts for modern business ethics are the focus of substantial research projects.
