The OST (merger of the University of Applied Sciences St. Gallen, HSR Rapperswil and NTB Buchs) is a regionally anchored university of applied sciences with national and international appeal. Currently, more than 3,000 students are enrolled in undergraduate or postgraduate studies in one of the four faculties of business, social work, technology and health. Six university institutes conduct research in future-oriented subject areas and offer practice-oriented services. As an interdisciplinary thought leader, it thus makes an important contribution to the social, economic and technological development of Eastern Switzerland.
Leadership, HRM and sustainable corporate development have been firmly anchored in the research, teaching and services of the IQB Institute of the OST for many years.
The EBG-funded project on women on the boards of directors and management boards of medium-sized companies makes a practical contribution to diversity and professionalism in the filling of board mandates and equal opportunities for women. VRMandat.com is a partner in this project.
