About the SEPS-HSG As the School of Economics and Political Science (SEPS) we unite two important core subjects for the internal and external impact of the HSG. The School of Economics and Political Science (SEPS) is a cornerstone of the University of St. Gallen. Together with the other Schools, we promote the aims of the HSG and play an active role in shaping its culture. We are distinguished by our internationally recognized research work in our two disciplines of “Economics" and “Political Science”, our high-quality teaching and our economic consulting work, which is recognized in research and practice. The three main objectives of the SEPS are as follows: 1. Top-level research work. 2. High-quality teaching. 3. A visible profile in economic policy and in international and European politics. Departments The SEPS is divided into two departments: the Department of Economics and the Department of Political Science. In addition to research and teaching, both departments are active in their core subjects in the form of economic consulting, provide for the application of knowledge in practice and are involved in further education in certain areas. Members SEPS has a total of 19 full professors, 15 assistant professors (one of them a SNSF professorship), and 1 associate professor, who are affiliated to different institutes, faculties, areas of research and centers.
