University profile The University of St.Gallen (HSG) was founded as a business academy in 1898 
- in the heyday of the St.Gallen embroidery industry and is nowadays a School

The first lectures were held in 1899. The practice-oriented approach and integrative view have characterised the education we offer since those early days. Today, we are one of Europe's leading business schools and are EQUIS and AACSB accredited.
