To be admitted to a degree course at the Master's Level, students will either have to

* hold a degree awarded by the University of St.Gallen (HSG);

* or to hold a recognised Master's degree awarded by another university or a Licentiate's degree (diploma) awarded by another university; hold a Bachelor's degree in the same or a similar major awarded by another university, i.e. a Bachelor's degree acquired in the same major in which the Master's degree course will be pursued (Business Administration, Economics, International Affairs, Legal Studies). A Bachelors degree is deemed to have been obtained in a similar major if it runs to a minimum of 60 credits in that major.
