The University of St.Gallen (HSG) is one of the oldest business schools there are and was the first of its kind to be founded in Switzerland. It was founded in 1898, when the Grand Council of the Canton of St.Gallen decided to establish an 'academy for trade, traffic and administration' in the city of St.Gallen. 2023 will be a special year for the HSG as we celebrate our 125th anniversary.
In the year of our 125th anniversary, a wide range of events will provide an opportunity to celebrate together - and get a deeper understanding of the University, which has been deeply rooted in St.Gallen and the region for 125 years. Take the opportunity to discover your HSG.
In the course of the year, we will announce further events and other highlights on this page. So it's worth checking back here more often.
