Vision and Mission Our Vision Our research focuses on the phenomena of entrepreneurship. Building on our research insights, we teach entrepreneurial thinking and promote entrepreneurial action. We base our work on international standards in research and education, further the state-of-the art in the entrepreneurship research domain and foster start-ups at the University of St. Gallen. Through our ongoing cooperation with practitioners we refer to the entrepreneurial reality in all fields of our activities. Our Mission Our research bases on a process perspective on entrepreneurship and focuses on creating, identifying, evaluating, and exploiting entrepreneurial opportunities. Further, it is theory-driven, evidenc-based, and published in high-ranked scientific entrepreneurship and management journals. We cooperate with leading experts of the research field and provide key implications for students, researchers, entrepreneurs, and companies. With our teaching approach of interactive lectures and coaching sessions, we train students on every program level at the University of St. Gallen to think and act like entrepreneurs. Furthermore, we engage in executive education by the active transmission of our entrepreneurial know-how to executives. Our goal is to promote entrepreneurial action in the context of start-ups, small and medium sized companies as well as in a corporate setting. Our initiative Startup@HSG not only ensures the knowledge transfer from the lecture room to the firm, but also promotes exploitation of the entrepreneurial potential on campus.
