International Week


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, as well as to gain an insight into different companies. At IW Switzerland, this means that 20 students from abroad are invited to St. Gallen and immerse themselves in Swiss business, politics, culture and education 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.
