Gender Monitoring 2016 Surveys of indicators relating to equal opportunities are part of the international standard today and constitute a central criterion for quality assurance at universities. At the HSG, these figures are determined at regular intervals. Results of the Gender Monitoring 2016 In comparison with previous years, our student body still consists of two thirds men and one third women. The proportion of women is rising slightly at undergraduate level. This is in line with a national trend in economic degree courses. The proportion of women among students of economic sciences at the HSG is currently ten per cent lower than among students who study at other Swiss universities. In the field of teaching and research, the gender ratio is changing among young researchers. The proportion of women has increased not only among assistants at the Doctoral Level but also at the next higher levels of the academic career. Thus it has increased from 25% to 32% among assistant professors since 2013. In comparison, the gender ratio has remained the same at the level of professorships, with a proportion of women of 11%. The Administration employs roughly the same number of men and women all in all; the proportions of men and women have remained virtually the same at all functional levels. Differences between the genders of personnel are particularly evident between departments. Human resources are divided up between professional areas in accordance with the traditional role conceptions of “masculine” and “feminine” activities. Accordingly, IT Services is the department with the highest proportion of men, while Human Resources is that with the highest proportion of women.
