Study Abroad

The MBF programme encourages and enables its students to supplement their academic curriculum with international experience. Double degrees, exchange programmes, students from all over the world, an international faculty, an internationally orientated curriculum and networks built up by the University of St.Gallen give students the opportunity to experience foreign cultures and perspectives at first hand.

34 leading business universities and over 60 multinational companies form The Global Alliance in Management Education of which the University of St.Gallen is a member. This alliance offers The CEMS Master in International Management (MIM), a double degree that tops off the home degree of CEMS Partner Universities. Application to the CEMS MIM double degree programme is open to all HSG Master’s students who want to prepare themselves for global leadership roles.
