Opening opportunities! We offer 13 advanced Master’s programmes that prepare you for complex tasks in applied fields and research.
Structure of the Master’s Level
The objective of the Master’s Level is to provide advanced academic training in selected subject areas. This involves both theoretical and practical training in each of the core programmes. Through research experiences, you will confront complex academic and practical problems, working independently to develop a clearly defined academic profile.
Close mentoring in small groups offers an opportunity for personal cooperation with faculty, which ultimately manifests itself in the quality of our Master’s programmes.

- Marketing, Services and Communication Management

One credit point is equivalent to 30 hours of course work at the University of St.Gallen. This includes lectures, independent studies, semester projects and examinations.
