ETH and HSG launch a joint executive education programme

The new «emba X» programme will start in February 2022 and was created in a collaboration between ETH Zurich and the University of St. Gallen. The two universities are combining their know-how in technology and man-agement as well as their networks for this innovative programme.

The new programme combines the strengths of the University of St.Gallen in leadership education, corporate management, sustainability, strategy and business transformation with the knowledge of ETH Zurich in the field of technology management. The 18-month «emba X» degree programme teaches the essentials of leadership, technology and general management with a focus on applied knowledge. In so-called «sprint weeks», for example, students develop solutions to current societal issues. Students also develop their social and leadership skills through «Skill Building Interventions».

Prof. Karolin Frankenberger, co-director of «emba X» adds: «Our new programme develops responsible leaders who have the mindset, knowledge and skills to integrate management and technology to achieve a positive, sustainable impact for their team, their organisations and society».

Today, managers are confronted with a variety of demands: among other things, employees are increasingly looking for meaningful work, the rapid pace of technological progress demands that leaders react flexibly to change, and last but not least, leaders are required to act responsibly towards society. The new programme aims to train business leaders to embrace such societal changes and align them with their company's business goals.
