Full-time and part-time Master of Business Administration (MBA)
The University of St.Gallen MBA programme continues to incorporate ESG material into the overall MBA experience.

For example, in the Corporate Strategy and Sustainability core course, there is a section on purpose-driven firms. An entire portfolio of electives have ESG themes, such as Impact Investing. Furthermore, the MBA encourages each class to pursue an extracurricular social impact project, which has led to funds being raised and causes being advocated for across a variety of issues.
