About

University of St Gallen

Nestled in the rolling green hills that overlook the picturesque Swiss town of St. Gallen you’ll find USG, a historic university with one of the most stunning campuses you’re ever likely to see. Whilst St. Gallen has a population of just 80,000, it is one of the youngest settlements in the country and foreign nationals make up almost 30% of its residents. Both the town and the country also hold important strategic locations – the financial hub of Zurich is just one hour away by train whilst Switzerland itself is more or less located in the geographic center of Europe. Throw in consistently low crime rates with low unemployment figures and it’s soon obvious why the quality of life in Switzerland is regarded as one of the best in the world.

The University of St. Gallen was founded way back in the 19th century and its worldwide alumni network is the oldest of its kind on the continent. A business school located outside of a major city can only have thrived for so long through careful transference of knowledge, standards and traditions throughout the generations, so the fact that 83% of USG graduates receive a job offer within 3 months suggests those high standards have been meticulously maintained over the years.

Over the course of 12 months the full-time MBA at USG, ranked as #4 in Europe by the Financial Times, combines an academic curriculum and career services with regular personal growth experiences. Students will study every aspect of a modern business before concluding the year by defending a strategy project, business plan or research paper in front of an academic panel. For students unable to commit full-time, the part-time MBA takes a further year to complete, requiring students to commit to 4 days on campus per month with some classes taking place at their secondary campus in Zurich.
