Long record of academic activities in Singapore
The University of St.Gallen has a long record of academic activities and connections in Singapore. Exchange programs between St.Gallen and Singapore are mutually beneficial. Faculty from St.Gallen visits Singapore to teach and do research. Likewise, professors from Singapore give lectures regularly in St.Gallen.
Furthermore, brisk contacts with local companies enable a variety of projects in which our students actively participate and contribute. At the same time, they offer our students opportunities to communicate with executives face to face, and to learn from their business experience. In addition, the community of HSG Alumni in Singapore is large and dynamic.
Singapore forms the heart of ASEAN countries
Singapore, widely acknowledged for its enormous success in building a prosperous nation during the last 40 years, forms the heart of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations). Many Western and Asian companies and institutions have their regional and global Headquarters in Singapore. Singapore has developed its comparative strengths in fields of banking, health care, education, research, and tourism and strives for world-class quality and innovation.
Singapore: Anglo-Saxon business world and the dynamics of Asia
Singapore boasts an open, multi-ethnic culture, comprising both the Anglo-Saxon business world and the dynamic region of Asia. Young academics should not miss the opportunity to gain a hands-on learning experience in such a dynamic place, where American and British style meets the Asian speed of growth. For this reason, many other western universities have established contacts with institutions in Singapore, some even setting up campuses there.
