Refugee crisis and elections

The issues of migration and asylum will determine the result of the Swiss parliamentary elections – but in which direction? A view of the election campaign and its possible results by Silvano Moeckli.

HSG awards 486 master degrees

On 3 October 2015, 486 graduates received Master of Arts (M.A. HSG) degrees at the University of St.Gallen. Speaking at the graduation ceremony, President Thomas Bieger noted the increasing productivity pressure that professionals face.

Focus on the election campaign

On 18 October, the Swiss will elect a new parliament. Political scientist Silvano Moeckli will take a look at the election campaign and the election result in a three-part public lecture series, which will start on 8 October.

Coming home or breaking free

Most students from entrepreneurial families do not want to take over the family business. Specifically, children from families that own businesses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland have other career plans, according to a study by HSG’s Center for Family Business and EY. The survey interviewed 31,000 children of entrepreneurs from 34 countries.
