St. Gallen Foundation

We ensure strategic continuity.

The St. Gallen Foundation for International Studies was founded in 1974, four years after the first symposium, as the student team recognised it needed long-term guidance and oversight if the initiative were to survive.

The foundation consists of the team shown below, as well as the Board of Trustees presided by Peter Voser.

The foundation selects and coaches the International Students’ Committee (ISC) in the planning and organisation of the St. Gallen Symposium, develops the thematic framework and helps the student team select and invite speakers and assemble the programme.

Topic: «The dilemma of disruption»

The 47th St. Gallen Symposium, will look at the breeding grounds for radical change, assess the tough decisions that come with it and direct participants’ gaze beyond the strict business definition.
