General Management & Strategy

Part-time MBA

Master of Business Administration



The MBA programme at the University of St.Gallen focuses on two skillsets: problem-solving and communication. We design and deliver the programme for the Germany, Austria and Switzerland region. There are the two skillsets which employers in the region see as a value-add from an MBA. We help people who are already prospective high potentials in the region by giving them the tools to become truly sophisticated long-term leadership candidates in this employment market.

Problem-solving: The programme emphasises numeracy in problem-solving. Our courses are data-driven. It also builds on the University’s tradition of integrating knowledge across siloes. Multiple aspects of the curriculum are designed to achieve this, including the Integration Phase, Learning Assessment Week and the Project Phase.

Communication: Employers regularly state they expect MBAs to be highly polished communicators. We work on all aspects of communication. Workshops directly address topics such as body language, slide design and structuring arguments. Learning is put into action on an ongoing basis through oral examinations, group work and corporate interactions.
