Impulses for the HSG

In the coming three years, 16 international Advisory Board members will support the University Management in strategic issues and trail-blazing university projects in an honorary capacity. Seven of the 16 members will be new to the HSG Advisory Board in 2015.

Education in childhood

The Science Café in the St.Gallen Textile Museum will be run jointly by the HSG, the PHSG and the FHS. On Wednesday, 26 November 2014 at 5.30 p.m., experts from the three institutions of higher education will discuss early childhood education.

Owing to its urgent space requirements, the University of St.Gallen (HSG) is to be extended by 2025. The Canton of St.Gallen, the City of St.Gallen and the University informed the public about the Project at a media information meeting. We interviewed Cantonal Ministers Stefan Kölliker and Willi Haag, Mayor Thomas Scheitlin and Thomas Bieger, President of the University of St.Gallen.

Among the top 99 thought leaders in the German-speaking area are the HSG professors Miriam Meckel, Caspar Hirschi and Hans-Christoph Binswanger. http://bit.ly/1yfseay Together with the GDI Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Tagesanzeiger examined how often these people were mentioned in the blogosphere, on Twitter and on Wikipedia, and how they are networked around the world.
