Online seminars on the topic of digitalisation

For the third year, the University of St.Gallen is conducting its Digital Week in the field of digital executive education. The ten free online sessions throw light on the specific aspects of digitalisation and its effects on companies. It will take place from 12 to 16 April 2021.

7 April 2021. Digital solutions enabled many business and teaching activities to be maintained during the coronavirus year, for example at the University of St.Gallen and the Executive School of HSG too. Reason enough to take up the topic again in the third edition of the Digital Week of the Executive School of the University of St.Gallen. Where is digital progress occurring? Where is the digital path leading us and what influence does digitalisation have in different sectors? Finally, the question also remains as to how we can best deploy our digital resources in our everyday work.

The third Digital Week of the ES-HSG with a total of ten online sessions from 12 to 16 April goes into specific aspects of digitalisation and its effects on companies. Insights from research, tools and “best practices” will be explained first-hand by proven experts from the University of St.Gallen. The online sessions comprise 20-25-minute presentations and a subsequent live question round. Participation is free. All that is needed registration via
