The HSG culture is strongly characterized by its Institutes and Research Institutes. The Institute concept contributes significantly to the strong reputation of the University of St.Gallen in education, research and executive education.
Institutes and Research Institutes are integrally linked to the HSG for financial, conceptual and above all for staffing purposes, yet operate as largely autonomous units that are run as businesses. They are particularly active in the areas of research, executive education and services.
The Law School has three Institutes and one Research Institute:
- Institute for Work and Employment Research (FAA-HSG)
- Research Institute for Information Law (FIR-HSG)
- Institute of Public Finance, Fiscal Law and Law and Economics (IFF-HSG)
- Institute for Legal Studies and Legal Practice (IRP-HSG)
