Further education

Your Digital Lecture Hall The networking activities of what has now grown to 28 , 000 former HSG students also includes knowledge transfer. At the initiative of HSG Alumni, the Executive School of the University of St.Gallen has launched the “HSG Spotlight� webinar series: these live seminars are held online, many reaching over 1,000 participants. Renowned professors from HSG provide insights and discuss current topics with participants.


180 clubs & chapters

Your Vibrant Community Our former students are welcomed all over the world and meet one another in over 180 Alumni Clubs. There's something for all alumnae and alumni among the many thematic or country-specific clubs – and more are continually being created, like the recently founded HSG Alumni Blockchain Club or the new HSG Alumni Sustainability Club. There are more than 10 chapters providing a wide choice for alumni in Switzerland. Join a club or found a new one with us!


40 of our clubs are hosted abroad – for example in New York, Munich and Shanghai (clockwise from top left). You can also network in other types of clubs: Subject-specific clubs – These offer meet-ups for graduates of the various programmes and subjects of the University of St.Gallen. Interest-specific clubs – These clubs are based on common interests of alumnae and alumni, who were often members of their respective student clubs whilst at university. Regional clubs Switzerland – Students from the smaller regions of Switzerland have formed clubs and hold cordial meet-ups in intimate settings. Company clubs – Do you know which of your work colleagues or employees are HSG alumnae and alumni? We’ll assist you launching your HSG Alumni company club to use this platform for informal exchange.

Turning an idea into reality – many thanks for the past and future donations that enable the HSG Learning Center to provide HSG students from yesterday, today and tomorrow with forward-looking teaching and learning opportunities, starting in 2022.

Commitment since 1931

Your Appreciation Former students giving something back to their university, both financially and in terms of goodwill, is a firmly established tradition. This facilitates the continuous creation of valuable and great things, for example the HSG Learning Center. The project, financed purely by private donations, has already received over 51 million francs – much of it from HSG Alumni members. University ties HSG alumnae and alumni maintain a close partnership with the University of St.Gallen – as seen in countless examples. Your membership contribution helps to support our mentoring programme as well as about 20 student initiatives, including the National Model United Nations Conference, the Start Summit and the Un-Dress Fashion Show.



Pass on Valuable Experience Committed HSG alumnae and alumni currently serve as mentors to 548 students, offering them support in their personal and professional development. We would be delighted if you would mentor one or more students when the next cycle of our programme gets under way in the autumn. Dedicated – Hilti CEO Christoph Loos talks with mentee Nadine Fritschi during a recent mentoring launch.


Stay Part of the HSG Family With its 28 ,000 members, HSG Alumni is one of the largest and most professionally run alumni organisations in Europe. As part of our community, you stay connected to HSG and your fellow students, and enjoy many benefits as well as password-protected access to the membership directory, where your profile will be visible to other alumni. Once you leave university, the annual membership costs CHF 100. A one-time subscription of CHF 2,500 entitles you to life membership – the sooner, the more rewards you'll enjoy.
