St.Gallen Collegium


Anniversary project 2023

The HSG wants to be the first business university to establish a college. Across disciplines and industries, researchers from all over the world will work together in St.Gallen to develop solutions that will give us more direction.

In our increasingly complex world, we are all looking for answers that give us orientation. In order to obtain holistic approaches to solutions, it is more necessary than ever for experts from different generations, sectors and backgrounds to be able to work together. Today, researchers lack the freedom to engage in this kind of co-creative collaboration. And universities lack the financial resources. The HSG wants to change this with the St.Gallen Collegium!

Would you like to learn more about the project? Prof. Dr. Claudia Franziska Brühwiler, Project Manager St.Gallen Collegium, is looking forward to hearing from you:

The funding

The University of St.Gallen needs three million Swiss francs as basic funding for three years to realize the St.Gallen Collegium. The unique, interdisciplinary research exceeds the basic offer of the HSG. For this important and urgent project, the University of St.Gallen depends on your support.

The prototype

Thanks to a grant from Prof. Dr. Josef Ackermann, the concept of the college could be tested in the summer of 2022: Following the St.Gallen Symposium, work was launched in three work streams, all dedicated to the issue of social cohesion, respectively. Trans- and interdisciplinary working groups St.Gallen Theses on “Social Sustainability” (led by Prof. Christa Binswanger and Prof. Judith Walls), “Citizenship & Statehood” (Prof. Christoph Frei) and “Future of Universities” (Prof. Oliver Gassmann). On September 16, 2023, the theses developed will be presented and widely discussed at the symposium on “Future of Universities, of Learning, Work & Research”.
