Public lectures The University of St.Gallen invites the public to 36 public lecture series in the autumn semester of 2021. Professors from the HSG as well as external lecturers will offer varied lectures on a wide range of topics - from women's suffrage to the future of freight transport. The lectures will take place in three delivery formats: online (via Zoom), on-site or hybrid. The public programme starts on Monday, 21 September 2021.

Certificate events All public lectures that are physically or hybrid scheduled must be conducted as certificate events. This essentially means that all participants and all lecturers must be either vaccinated, tested or recovered. At the entrance to each classroom, the Public Programme and Housekeeping staff will check the 3G certificates. Semester pass A semester pass costs 20 CHF and grants access to all public lectures throughout the semester. The billing slip for the pass can be found in the lecture programme in stock at the HSG. Inaugural and farewell lectures Anybody appointed a professor or habilitated lecturer at HSG, holds an inaugural lecture to introduce themselves. Professors going into retirement also say farewell with a lecture. Not just HSG employees, but also you too are welcome to come to these public inaugural and farewell lectures. Similarly to our public lectures, these inaugural and farewell lectures deal with a number of topics: from business and legal issues to cultural and political aspects. Other public lectures The Children’s University teaches children about business and legal issues in a way that is easy to understand. The HSG supports regional series of events, the "Monday Forum of Eastern Switzerland". The "Monday Forum" has 16 lectures a year, in that experts will speak about health, philosophy, history and art in the Pfalzkeller. Each day all our public lectures are updated in our agenda.
