Practice Credits Practice credits are awarded for practical activities that are closely related to the MBF. We strongly encourage you to gain practical experience during your Master's studies and to get in contact with possible employers. Practice credits shall be awarded for practical activities which have a close thematic connection with the MBF. As a first priority, practice credits shall be credited to Leadership Skills, as a second priority, to Independent Electives. A minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 Practice Credits can be awarded. Practice Credits will not be graded. Practice Credits may also be awarded for practical work you have done no earlier than a year before you begin to study at the University of St.Gallen. In this case they can be awarded for an activity only if you have a recognised bachelor's or equivalent degree when you began the activity or, if you are an HSG bachelor's HSG candidate, when you have fulfilled all requirements for the bachelor's degree.
