      As a standard we recommend starting with the HSG Executive Diploma Insurance Management (Core), then completing the elective specialization I or II (Elective) and finishing with the Insurance Masterclass (Core). You have a total of 24 - 36 months (depending on your individual time investment) to complete all three components (Core and Electives).

      Application deadline:
      You can apply for the execution 2025/2026 until December 1, 2024 online here.


      The total cost for completing all three components (Standard = 2x Core and 1x Elective) is CHF 59'600. This amount can also be divided into 2 to 3 installments at the request of the participants.

      The payments can be arranged either per completed study module or as part of a continuing education agreement covering the entire program.

      If you choose to take a CAS course from another institute at the University of St. Gallen as part of the Electives, tuition fees may vary. The prices published on the respective program pages are decisive.
