ECOL Virtual Exchange

With the ECOL programme, bachelor students of ECOL partner universities can take courses at HSG virtually.

In collaboration with ESADE Ramon Llull University, Bocconi University, Rotterdam School of Management, Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien, Copenhagen Business School and Aalto University, HSG initiated the European Common Online Learning programme (ECOL). ECOL allows students to take virtual courses at HSG while continuing their regular studies at the home university.
