The University of St. Gallen in Switzerland is widely known as a very prestigious business school. Its reputation is unrivalled in the German-speaking countries. For decades it has been the recognised centre for developing private and public sector leaders. The University of St. Gallen has a long and rich history of analysing and innovating management from a cross-functional and interdisciplinary point of view. It was the first German-speaking university accredited according to AACSB and the European EQUIS standards. Founded in 1898, it now hosts some 8,500 students. High above St. Gallen in spacious rooms, flooded with light, executive education becomes a truly special experience.

The Executive Campus HSG is a venue for executive education courses, seminars, conventions, but also for producing innovations, strategies, being creative and meeting up with others.
