International Week

Europe & Asia

The International Week (IW) is a multilateral exchange project of a worldwide network of universities in Europe and Asia, with each partner university organizing an IW once a year. The IWs are each organized and run by a committee of local students and aim to promote cultural exchange and mutual understanding, and also provide  insights into different companies. For IW Switzerland, this means that 20 students from abroad are invited to St. Gallen and immerse themselves in economic, political, cultural and educational activities for 10 days. The support of large and small companies enables us to offer these exchange projects (almost) free of charge and thus make participation possible for all students.

Upcoming IWs
