From HSG hub to GIMLA Following its internationalization strategy, the University of St.Gallen has an established presence in the Latin American region since 2011. Over the years, the University has steadily increased the activities of its representation there. In 2018, the University takes a step further and inaugurates the St.Gallen Institute of Management in Latin America (GIMLA) at the heart of Avenida Paulista in São Paulo, Brazil. The Institute is mandated to foster and strengthen academic partnerships via bilateral and multilateral teaching agreements, research projects, and it also contributes to the formation of high quality professionals via executive education. Committed to produce real social impact, the Institute works in close relationship with local university partners, the HSG Alumni community and the praxis.
