We focus on what moves the world. Since 46 years.

The St. Gallen Symposium aims to create a debate between the decision makers of today and those of tomorrow. It is organised by the International Students’ Committee (ISC), a team of students from the University of St. Gallen and annually takes place in May.


Our goal is to provide a setting for relevant debates between Leaders of Today and Tomorrow on topics of management, politics and civil society.

Past Symposia
