Recognising potentials The HSG will be presenting its executive education courses, degree courses and opportunities for traineeships at Eastern Switzerland’s biggest vocational and education fair, the OBA, from 1-4 September 2016. The fair is run under the motto of “Discover your potential”. 29 August 2016. The University of St.Gallen (HSG) will again be present at this year’s "Ostschweizer Bildungsausstellung". Prospective trainees and students will be able to obtain information about the University and its degree and executive education courses at stand 3.1.21 in the St.Gallen Olma Halls. During the whole fair the HSG will additionally present its traineeship opportunities. From this year onwards, adult education will be thematically subsumed under the concept of "executive education". The OBA will now last for four days. This will make the OBA more compact and more clearly structured and will cover the close links between vocational traineeships and executive education. Impulses for career choices The topic for this year’s education fair is "Discover your potential". The OBA provides young people with impulses for their career choices. They will be able to try out a wide variety of trades and further education opportunities interactively. Education concerns young and old for the whole of their lives, from vocational traineeships to executive education and a change of profession. Network for education in the region The OBA provides an expert environment for personal encounters between national and regional professional associations, educational institutions, as well as for companies that offer traineeships and for adults who are interested in education, career services and HR managers. Admission is free of charge. With 21,000 visitors, 1,200 courses on offer and 150 participants, the OBA is Eastern Switzerland’s biggest vocational and education fair.
