When you graduate from one of HSG’s Law and Management programmes, you become part of HSG’s alumni network – a unique community. As a Law and Management alumnus, you will be able to strengthen your network of contacts from a range of professions, make new connections, maintain your HSG ties and keep in touch with friends. Regular events offer unique insights into business, stimulate networking and ensure you remain up-to-date with the latest developments at the HSG. Please note that you require a Certificate of Advanced Studies or higher-level qualification from the WRM, MLP, CGN or CM programme to join the alumni network.

In particular, I was able to benefit from a direct transfer of practical experience in the field of corporate governance. “
„In this course I have acquired a more holistic and deeper know-how about Compliance Management. The study documents help me in my daily compliance work, for example as a reference book or basis for argumentation. The HSG Certificate in Compliance Management (CM-HSG) was well worthwhile for me.“
„I can highly recommend the WRM to all those working at management level without legal training. The competent lecturers teach the practical basics for coping with the increasingly frequent legal challenges in our fast-moving and demanding time. In addition, I was able to substantially expand my range of knowledge and sustainably strengthen my profile through the diverse range of topics and the large industry mix of the participants. “

Experiencing oneself as part of power dynamics and relationships is intensive but instructive and changes one's perception of problems and solutions. In my opinion a compulsory seminar for leaders!“

The speakers have a wealth of practical experience and knowledge that they share with the participants.

I was able to learn a great deal from the 3-week programme. “

„Through active participation, this highly focused week-long course opened up insights into the American legal system, ways of thinking and processes. It is taught in English by motivated professionals from the US – the week is demanding, but for any company that has contact with the States, it’s highly informative and fascinating.“
„After the very first module of the CGN-HSG programme, the success I achieved in negotiating has meant that the course more than paid for itself. In addition to the professional content, the CGN-HSG introduced me to a valuable network of senior managers.“

This intensive personal development seminar is a must for people who want to learn how to work with groups more effectively.“
