Executive Master Management & Law

An executive education course of Management & Law at the University of St.Gallen will benefit you in many ways: you will be able to tailor our newly structured course individually to precisely match your current situation in life and your personal requirements – in terms of time, content and conclusion. This means that you can start at any time, continually extend your executive education, also interrupt it, devote yourself to a different topic and try out something else. And now you will also have the option of having executive education units provided by other HSG institutes credited to your programme. You will be comfortably able to extend your collected executive education units up to the degree of Master Management & Law (EM ML-HSG) – a genuine novelty. According to the principle of lifelong learning.

Everything you need to know about the EM ML HSG

Mention of specialisations in the Master’s degree certificate:

With the Executive Master Management & Law (EM ML-HSG), you have the option of choosing a specialisation and having this recognised in the certificate. The following overview shows which specialisation options are currently available and which qualifications from certificate courses (CAS) or diploma courses (DAS) are recognised for this (at least 3 CAS or one DAS).

The respective specialisation will be noted as an addition in the Master’s certificate of the “Executive Master Management & Law (EM ML-HSG)”.

Please note that the list is continually being adapted, i.e. specialisations are added or removed. Also, the list is subject to modifications at any time.

  • At present, there are no specialisations yet.
As to crediting, the following must be borne in mind:
  • Participants must satisfy the admission requirements for the Executive Master Management & Law (EM ML-HSG) in every case. The course management reserves the right to examine individual cases.
  • Only the successful conclusion of CAS/DAS courses of HSG institutes that are listed here can be credited. Please note that this may be adapted on an ongoing basis. If your HSG certificate/diploma is not mentioned, please contact the relevant institute.
  • Only certificate/diploma courses that have been completed in their entirety will be credited and not individual ECTS points.
  • A maximum of 30 ECTS points will be credited to the EM ML-HSG.
  • A completed certificate course (CAS) will be credited with a blanket number of 10 ECTS points while a completed diploma course (DAS) will be credited with a blanket number of 30 ECTS points. Any ECTS points earned above and beyond this will be forfeited in the crediting process.
  • Double crediting is ruled out.
  • For ECTS points to be credited, participants have to submit the original certificate or diploma, which will be destroyed without substitution after the points have been credited.
  • If your certificate or diploma course requires you to write a thesis, it may be that this will not automatically be credited as a Master’s thesis. If this should be the case, however, it will only be credited to its actual extent while the missing points have to be earned through other programmes.
  • These conditions are subject to modifications at any time.
