Promoting Women for 10 years: Women Back to Business

The University of St.Gallen has been collaborating with large Swiss companies for the past ten years to offer the successful executive education programme in management «Women Back to Business» (WBB) for women with a university or university of applied sciences degree. A reason to celebrate! Our anniversary celebration will take place on 14 September 2018 at the Executive Campus of the University of St.Gallen and will feature prominent guests and speakers.

In Switzerland, there are more than 50’000 women with a university degree who have stopped working professionally in order care for family members or for other reasons. Many of them express having difficulty returning to the workforce, despite the shortage of qualified professionals in many sectors of the economy. Women who desire to return to the workforce or reposition themselves professionally can particularly benefit from an executive education programme that is tailored to help them restart their careers or take the next career step.

For the past ten years the Women Back to Business programme has been supporting women on their way back to work or into a more challenging position. Management courses familiarise participants with the latest concepts and models in the most important areas of business management (i.e. strategy, HR, controlling and marketing). A big advantage in comparison to other executive education programmes are the individual and group coaching sessions as well as the internships that participants complete, which ensure a direct link to daily business practice. Many renowned companies greatly appreciate our programme and support it by providing scholarships and other services.

Women Back to Business

The management programme for women on the move.

The WBB programme looks back on a successful track record. This March, we are launching the programme in German for the 11th year in a row and the programme in English for the 3rd consecutive year. More than 250 women have graduated from the “Women Back to Business” programme during this time. A large percentage of them (on average 75%) have successfully returned to the workforce and many now support current programme participants by offering them internships.

We will celebrate our 10th anniversary on 14 September 2018 at the Executive Campus of the University of St. Gallen. Carolina Müller-Möhl, president of the Müller-Möhl Foundation and a supporter of the «Women Back to Business» programme since the very beginning, will give the keynote speech. An attractive programme awaits our guests, who will receive more details of the event with their invitation.
