Diversity Monitoring Report 2023

In addition to the student statistics, HSG also published the Diversity Monitoring Report this week. The report collects and analyses data on equal opportunities in the areas of studies and teaching, research and faculty, as well as administration, and provides qualitative insights into various diversity initiatives. Since 2020, the diversity dimensions of internationality, special needs and age have also been taken into account. The development of the numbers over the years provides information on what HSG has achieved and in which areas there is still a need for action.
