Knowledge Transfer Unit WTT-FHS

The Knowledge Transfer Unit WTT-FHS offers paid company analysis, market research and management designs in Swiss and foreign markets for all types of businesses and public institutions. All FHS students on the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Business Information Technology degree programme complete three or four of these assignments as their “real-life student consulting projects” during their studies, with the aim of improving their practical expertise. They work either in teams or alone, but always accompanied by FHS lecturers. The project objectives defined in collaboration with the client must be executed using appropriate methodology and with outcomes that are directly applicable in your business. The real-life student consulting projects are a strategic pillar and a unique selling proposition (USP) of FHS St.Gallen.

Every year in September to mark the end of the projects, the WTT-FHS organises the WTT YOUNG LEADER AWARD. At the awards ceremony, the best real-life student consulting project teams in the categories Market Research and Management Design are honoured before an audience consisting of students as well as representatives from the worlds of business, politics and science.
