Brief description

FHS St.Gallen is an interdisciplinary university of applied sciences in Eastern Switzerland. It has four main departments: Business Administration, Health, Construction and Engineering, and Social Work. At FHS, we provide science-based and practice-oriented education and training, pursue application-oriented R&D (both within disciplines and in interdisciplinary projects) and offer consulting services to companies and other organizations. Around 3,400 students are currently enrolled in our Bachelor and Master programmes or in executive education courses.
Practice-orientation is more than just a buzzword for us, and our teaching goes far beyond analyzing case studies. In the Department of Business Administration, for example, students learn to apply theoretical knowledge by systematically carrying out consulting projects for companies and public institutions in Switzerland and abroad. They work in small groups supported by experienced lecturers, and our clients rely on the solutions the student teams propose. The scope and the number of student consulting projects carried out at FHS give our programmes a unique and well-renowned profile.
