Innovative tools for complex relationships

How can we empower students to see the big picture and develop an intuitive understanding for economic processes? The chair of «Business Economics and Public Policy» donated by Dr. Josef Ackermann will answer this question – with a restructuring of the economics course content of the German-speaking Executive MBA programmes at the Executive School of Management, Technology and Law. The development of new, innovative teaching materials and methods will create the conditions to convey complex relationships quickly and easily to specific target groups, thus further strengthening the international position of the University of St.Gallen. We are very grateful for the financing of this chair for the restructuring of the economics course content.


An economics course can be offered on the EMBA study programme.

The chair is fully financed by Dr. Josef Ackermann.

7 chairs are currently supported at the University of St.Gallen.

Interview with Dr. Josef Ackermann

«The higher you are in a position, the more important economics becomes in the content of understanding the big picture.»
