We are one of Europe’s leading business schools and are EQUIS and AACSB accredited. Founded more than a century ago as a “business academy”, the University of St. Gallen is focused on management, humanities, law, finance and political and social science, with a focus on practical education. In addition to five schools, the university has 29 affiliated research institutes, which although managed by academics, are run independently as businesses. This is where St. Gallen trains many of its junior research staff, allowing them to understand the professional world and be well placed to start spin-off companies.
The University of St.Gallen is an international place for thought leadership which widens horizons and forsters relations with a wide variety of countries and foreign cultures. The dialogue with students from more than 84 nations provides a wealth of international experience in St.Gallen. We encourage our students to enrich their education with international experience in specific ways, and offer a variety of options for this purpose.
When it comes to studying, the university offers a broad curriculum, and students must attend lectures in additional subjects such as history, sociology, psychology, business ethics and philosophy. The aim is to get students thinking critically, as well as give them the skills to deal with social and cultural challenges they encounter during their lives and careers.
