Faculty The quality of executive education is influenced considerably by lecturers. First of all, having a team of renowned experts means being able to call them by name and prove their expertise. Many providers of executive education omit this step – and thus leave their customers in the dark about whom they will be dealing with later. We offer the alternative of a faculty that combines expertise, business experience, entrepreneurial attitude and socio-ecological responsibility – from Executive MBAs to short seminars.

Rigorous and relevant «Rigour and relevance» gets to the heart of the demands made of experts at an application-oriented university. What is researched and taught in courses must meet the strict criteria of scientific resilience as well as the conditions of economic and social usefulness. So what constitutes proof of performance? At a university, this means above all scientifically sound «thought leadership». The lecturers at the HSG work in the frontline of their particular field of expertise and are recognised as ahead of their time for their topics.

Rooted in practice

Socio-ecological responsibility

The participants of our courses benefit from scientific insights, because findings are gained from practical experience for practical application. Research projects are conducted in close cooperation with companies and public institutions. The award-winning case studies, which are also popular with academic staff from other educational institutions, demonstrate that practical relevance is not a foreign concept at HSG. Our experts are sought-after interlocutors up to the highest decision-making levels – from SMEs to global corporations, from commercial enterprises to public institutions. Together, we rise time and again to the new challenges of result-oriented, responsible management.

In times of economic and social reorientation, the University of St.Gallen’s holistic approach is particularly important. Our St.Gallen Management Model, with nearly 50 years of history, is an example of this, as is the university’s belief in top-level research in the area of «Responsible Corporate Competitiveness». Substantial research projects on topics such as healthcare, renewable energies, leadership and values in society, ecological sustainability and ethical integrity are dedicated to topics of enormous social importance and ensure plurality and critical discourse in our executive education.

Entrepreneurial orientation This all happens on the basis of an entrepreneurial attitude. The University of St.Gallen generates a large part of its financial resources itself and demands a high degree of individual responsibility from its research institutes with respect to their funding. Income from further education plays an important role in financing research. Many of our experts are «home-grown» products of our education. They have successfully built up businesses and remain loyal to us as valued lecturers in training and executive education. Furthermore, spin-offs from HSG have created a large number of jobs in the region. Those responsible for personnel appreciate HSG’s high practical orientation and give it top marks in relevant rankings.

The «HSG-Spirit» Despite the individuality evident, our participants credit our faculty with a strong, mutually shared focus. The combination of the four previously mentioned characteristics creates a climate of high and positive energy. It makes executive education at the HSG a lasting experience that goes far beyond providing insights and understanding. Share this experience with the many thousand alumni around the world!
