In June 2024, the BSIS impact assessment once again granted the University of St.Gallen (HSG) its prestigious BSIS label. For the 2024 BSIS reassessment, three impact dimensions were selected: Intellectual impact, regional ecosystem, and societal impact. The label was awarded for a three-year period.

The BSIS assessment consists of several phases: Data collection, the submission of a pre-visit report, the on-site visit and an expert report including recommendations for the future develop-ment of our impact. The reassessment visit consisted of a number of meetings with several internal and external stakeholders at different levels of seniority and representing various impact areas and perspectives. During these talks, the experts had the opportunity to discuss the University’s position in the region and beyond. 

Meetings focused on different impact areas, including intellectual contributions, regional ecosystem involvement, and societal effects. The planning and information provided by the University were praised. The BSIS assessment has allowed HSG to effectively showcase the positive contribution HSG makes to its students, stakeholders and to the greater St.Gallen – Appenzeller – Lake of Constance Region.

About BSIS

The Business School Impact System (BSIS) is the first comprehensive impact assessment tool for business schools, covering more than 130 indicators across seven dimensions of impact. It provides a tailor-made data collection system for monitoring, assessing, and developing the impact of business schools.

The BSIS process involves the definition of the impact zone and institutional scope, data collection, impact assessment, and the report with recommendations for future development. Demonstrating the school’s impact on internal and external stakeholders, the system serves as a communication and negotiation tool externally and fosters an impact culture within the school. Schools that undergo BSIS are awarded the BSIS label for a three-year period.
