Our mentoring programme One of our university’s key objectives is to challenge our students while fostering their personal development at the same time. To fulfil our university’s task of providing an integrated education, we deliberately set goals that go well beyond the pure transfer of knowledge. To this end, courses that reach above and beyond the core programmes are introduced in phases. The mentoring programme, which is available to all students at the Bachelor's, Master's and Ph.D. levels, is an important part of this concept. We also seek to more strongly anchor our university both on a local and national level by establishing networks among our students and notable figures in the fields of politics, economics, media, art, culture and science. This integration of experience into our degree courses not only promotes the development of our students – it also enriches university life as a whole. The mentoring programme is undertaken in partnership with the University of St.Gallen (HSG) and HSG Alumni.
