Internationality, practical relevance and an integrative view have characterised education at the University of St.Gallen ever since it was established in 1898. Today, we educate more than 8,300 students in Business Administration, Economics, Law, Social Sciences and International Affairs. With success: according to the current rankings, the HSG is among Europe’s leading business universities. The Financial Times in its 2016 ranking of European business Schools recognised the University of St.Gallen as one of the best in Europe, raising it up to fifth position. The HSG has the distinction of being both the leading business university in Switzerland and in the German-speaking region. Our integrative education to high academic standards has earned us the EQUIS and AACSB accreditations by way of international seals of approval. Our students, too, appreciate the HSG: about 90 per cent of graduates would again opt for the HSG.
The University of St.Gallen is an international place for thought leadershrip which widens horizons and forsters relations with a wide variety of countries and foreign cultures.
