Welcome to the Executive MBA programs of the University of St. Gallen


Combining the Strengths of a Manager with the Strengths of a Leader

In today's volatile and demanding global economic environment, executives must confront more complex challenges than ever before. At the same time, these challenges offer new exciting opportunities for smart, motivated and passionate individuals in large multinational companies as well as in small businesses and startups. The prevailing opinion is that managers are problem solvers while leaders are visionaries. While managers focus on optimizing existing processes, leaders break new ground. Managers «do the things right», while leaders act upon the principle «do the right thing». Only if you can combine the rational, problem-oriented and focused style of the manager with the vision, courage and drive of a leader can you act in a confident manner. During our EMBA programs, we support you to become a charismatic business leader.
