International Affairs @HSG

Our overarching mission is to bring forth flexible generalists – graduates with the ability to tackle problems comprehensively and communicate across disciplines.

The degree courses in International Affairs complement the HSG's well-established Business perspective with components from Economics, Law, and Political Science. 

The degree courses teach you the skills and knowledge needed to study complex real-world problems in an evidence-based and integrated manner. 

More than half of our graduates work in the private sector, e.g. banking and financial institutions, insurance companies, consultancies and other multinational corporations. On the public sector side, about 45% are employed by federal, state and local governments, development agencies, international organisations, the media, non-profit organisations as well as universities and research centres.
