Ranked #1 for the ninth consecutive year

University of St.Gallen Master’s in Strategy and International Management receives top grade from the annual Financial Times international rankings.

The Financial Times published its annual rankings of international Master’s in Management programmes, placing the University of St.Gallen’s (HSG) Strategy and International Management programme (SIM- HSG) in the top position for a record ninth consecutive time.

“SIM approaches management education from a different perspective which sets us apart from many other programmes. We offer a holistic education that consciously includes the notion of personal growth and mastery. We put the question of purpose and values at the core while installing in the students the business acumen that they need as effective leaders,” said SIM-HSG Managing Director Prof. Dr. Omid Aschari. “Social responsibility and ethics are an integral part of their learning experiences and reflections.”

Based on a survey of business schools and their alumni, the annual Financial Times ranking weighs different criteria ranging from diversity, quality of faculty, aims achieved and placement success. The Financial Times annual analysis of universities has long been a benchmark of academic excellence worldwide.
