Great Career Opportunities

Four out of five Bachelor’s and Master’s graduates have at least one offer of employment by the time they graduate. A University of St.Gallen (HSG) qualification is recognised internationally as an indicator of high quality and, as a result, you are likely to receive multiple offers as you look to start your career. Alternatively, you may prefer to set up your own company – HSG graduates create a higher than average number of start-ups, most of them with international impact.
