The University of St.Gallen (HSG) is ranked fourth in the Financial Times' latest "European Business Schools Ranking", defending the excellent position it achieved last year. The HSG is the highest ranked public university, as well as the best rated university in Switzerland and the entire German-speaking region of Europe. The annual ranking produced by the international business newspaper Financial Times includes the 95 best business universities in Europe.
Very good grades for ongoing education programmes
Three quarters of the courses in the European Business Schools Ranking produced by the Financial Times consist of ongoing education programmes. The ranking also highlights the internationally recognised quality of the MBA, Executive MBA and open and company-specific ongoing education programs offered by the University of St.Gallen. Today, the HSG generates more than one fifth of its budget with ongoing education, which in turn creates numerous jobs in St.Gallen. "We are currently investing heavily in innovation in relation to teaching and didactics," says Professor Winfried Ruigrok, President's Delegate for University Development and Ongoing Education. "This is essential if we are to maintain our outstanding position in international competition over the long term."
