The 18-month GEMBA HSG programme is made up of 14 core courses. Four courses take place on the Executive Campus in St.Gallen, and 12 further courses are divided between five countries on three different continents. The programme comprises 70 days of contact time as well as a further 20 days of preparation and follow-up work. Classes are timetabled in blocks from Monday to Friday. The breaks of several weeks between modules and the weekends allow participants time to complete self-study and fulfil their family and professional commitments.
