About the institute

For students

Students can broaden their horizons and expand their networks across borders through academic partnerships, research collaborations and exchange programs with Latin American institutions. These connections with professionals, academics and experts in the Latin American business field provide students with career opportunities, internships and mentorship programs that enrich their knowledge and life experiences.

GIMLA offers various educational programs such as Latam Term, St. Gallen Connection and EMBE Brazil, which aim to enhance students' academic experiences and professional development. These programs provide access to unique learning opportunities tailored to the Latin American context.

As a research centre, GIMLA promotes interdisciplinary collaboration across borders. Students have the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research projects to gain practical experience in addressing real-world challenges in Latin America and to drive innovation in the development of new projects.

GIMLA promotes cultural exchange and understanding between Switzerland and Latin America through activities and events. Students immerse themselves in the rich cultural heritage of Latin America and share their experiences with their fellow students.

For researchers

Our institute is dedicated to pursuing knowledge and innovation, emphasising interdisciplinary collaboration that transcends geographical boundaries. We actively foster connections between HSG researchers, faculty members, and our esteemed partners in Latin America, aiming to address shared areas of interest through our research initiatives.

Furthermore, we take pride in being recognised as the Leading House for the Latin American region. The State Secretariat for Education, Research, and Innovation (SERI) gave us this mandate. In this pivotal role, we champion the interests of the Swiss scientific community, facilitating and enhancing bilateral collaborations with key partners. By creating funding mechanisms and nurturing scientific networks, we strive to bolster collaborative research projects involving diverse international teams from various research institutions.
