Dies academicus

Once a year, our academic holiday brings together friends and former students of the university as well as prominent figures from the sciences, the field of economics and society at large.

The Dies academicus is an academic holiday we celebrate together with the teaching faculty, students and staff of the HSG. The day marks an occasion on which we award honorary doctor’s titles to distinguished scientists in the disciplines of business, law and the social sciences. 

Distinguished HSG personalities

In addition, we award the title of Honorary Senator to persons who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the University. The Dies academicus is also an occasion for honouring outstanding junior faculty.

Save the date

The next Dies academicus will take place on 13 May 2023.
