University of St.Gallen

Our annual highlight, the GSERM Summer School, takes place in June. During three weeks, we offer more than 30 courses on the campus of the University of St.Gallen.

I had a truly wonderful time, and was very impressed with everything about GSERM: My students were excellent, the program and facilities were first-rate, and the organization and support was absolutely flawless. I hope that I can continue to be a part of this hugely successful program.

From insight to impact - The University of St.Gallen is more than just an educational institution; it is a place of inspiration where thinking is valued and actively promoted. Acquiring up-to-date knowledge of a given subject enables members of the HSG community to make an important contribution to social and economic progress and further their own personal development. “From insight to impact” is not just our message/motto; rather, it is a promise to the outside world, against which we can be measured. At the same time, it provides motivation and inspiration for those on the inside.
