Executive School Online Sessions

Your Digital Week- a Tour d'Horizon

A great many business activities could be maintained in the Corona year - thanks to the digital possibilities. Executive education programmes at the University of St.Gallen switched to online teaching and opened up new opportunities. Digitalisation received even more impact last year. Reason enough to take up the topic again in the third webinar week of the Executive School of the University of St.Gallen and to dare a look back and into the future. What have we achieved in the Corona year? Where is the digital journey leading us, and what influence does digitalisation have in the various sectors? Finally, the question remains: how can we optimally use our digital tools in our daily work?

From 12th to 16th April 2021, we highlighted specific facets of digital transformation and how it impacts your business with the third edition of the Executive School’s webinar week. Get first-hand research insights, tools and best practices from the top faculty of the University of St.Gallen and discuss your questions with our professors in the nine live online sessions. 

You will find below our list of webinars. Check back regularly, as we will update some more information by the end of March. The online sessions include a 20-25 minute presentation followed by a live Q&A session.
