14 May 2012. The panel discussion of the Zeit Campus Dialogue on Tuesday, 22 May 2012 at 6 p.m. will take place in the Main Building (Room 01-013, Dufourstrasse 50, St.Gallen). Admission is free, the number of seats is limited.

Discussion about the quality of education
The issue of education and funding is being discussed in controversial terms again these days: do students actually profit from educational expenditure? Are we using sufficient resources in the right places? It is not solely the amount of funds invested that is crucial for quality and success. The question as to whether students are getting the education they deserve will be the topic of the Zeit Campus Dialogue.

At the HSG Peer Teuwsen, the Swiss correspondent of Die Zeit, will discuss the quality of education with President Prof. Dr. Thomas Bieger, Vice-President Prof. Dr. Ulrike Landfester, Dr. Urs Moser (Head of the Institute of Educational Evaluation at the University of Zurich) and the economist Rudolf Strahm (Social Democrat National Councillor for many years, former price supervisor, author). Students and the general public will then be invited to ask questions.
