The HSG is classified scandal to scandal – until now

The Lust in St. Gallen has escaped in names. Lustmühle, Nest, Freudenberg. Written by Niklaus Meienberg: "The Freudenberg feel its name from the joy which ends the walk of St. Gallen, if you look on the opposite Rosenberg, the rule is covered by the residences of the wealthy citizens, which have brought efficiency to a Villa."

"stay in St. Gallen (670 m above sea level. M.)" means the Text of the great journalists and doubt the son of the city. And today, 35 years later, in the bottom of the valley between Rosenberg and Freudenberg on the functional office of the FDP of St. Gallen, the local group boss, then say something else. But he says pretty much the Same. "For us, the culture of debate is missing in this Canton. We are well-intentioned, it is not a bad word. Who bites sometimes, not so much. All of this leads one to recognize undesirable developments, much too late."

Nothing to hear. Nothing to say. Nothing to my. The Rosenberg remotely admire.

interference is not desired

Beat Tinner was called leader of the free democratic party in the cantonal Parliament. A man who says of himself, whether he for its significant words known. Tinners Lust, Tinners Trouble escaping anywhere, the need to get out. So as recently as the new rector of the HSG: of St. Gallen, high up on this Rosenberg, perched, in the "journal" gave an Interview and it Tinner the hat lüpfte.

Bernhard Ehrenzeller is the name of the designated principal, who is competing in exactly a year. In an Interview with HSG Professor talked about the problems of his College and how he intend to solve this alone. Without interference by the Canton or anybody else. "The HSG is not an administrative Department", the autonomy was Central.

The reaction was always the same: we solve on your own. Our Money. Our Problem.

In the media release, the Tinner after the Interview spread left, he attacked the University head-on. "Would the University, as the honorary Zeller claimed, in fact, able to find solutions themselves, we would have this debate," wrote the FDP politician. Without the framework of the policy – with the exception of teaching and research – go to it.

CHF 160 million from taxpayers

Tinners reaction was unusual. A free intimate the own University of Economics and business is attacking a Liberal! – it really is not there. Certainly not in St. Gallen. O Rosenberg.

he does it anyway, shows how much is in the Moment for all on the game. For the University of. The Policy. The City. In June, the Canton will vote on the new Campus in the city, 160 million Swiss francs from the taxpayers, the long-awaited opportunity to get the University of your mountain in the city. A prestige project for the prestigious institution that has earned the reputation of a "cadre". Nationally, and internationally. Taken from the one and despise the other. Many on the Left see the HSG as a hotbed of neo-liberal ideas, is partly to blame for the financial crisis ten years ago. The HSG is supposed to come about now closer to the people, closer to the city, even the parties of the left.

But just now it is not running at all on the mountain. It runs really bad. For a year, the HSG scandal after scandal.

As an Emeritus Professor and celebrity is reported to enter critics of the framework agreement, of which the Postgraduate degree was in the end of 2017, a debt of 1.1 million Swiss francs, the "Rundschau".

As a Professor, had of the financial market supervision serious error in the Supervisory and control duties of its Board mandates blame. As a Professor, the created scientific studies for the benefit of mainly the very company that he is working as a consultant. As a Professor, had to because of a possible fraud in the exhaust gas affair of Audi in custody.

As a Professor, was about 100'000 Swiss francs improper expenses to pay off. Since the current rector, was involved in his secondary appointment as Chairman of the Board of the Jungfrau railway in a case of souped-up stock prices. Since all of the Unger were really related to charges made in various institutions, naming the "Tagblatt" neatly.

Low debt-to-consciousness

The constant in all of the scandals: the intimate reaction to the HSG. Chamber. These problems we solve on your own. Rare to note that no University in Switzerland, generate so many foreign funds was missing. Our money, our Problem. The self-financing degree of the HSG is 50 percent, the institutes are organized as small businesses. "This has a self-service mentality. In the end, the HSG is a public Institution that is financed to a large part of taxpayers ' money."

The Laura Bucher says she works at the Federal administrative court, is Co-group President of SP-Green parliamentary group in the cantonal Parliament, and already knew in high school that you would prefer to study in Zurich than in their home country. The old prejudices. The rich Students from abroad with their neo-liberal beliefs and their growth ideology. Maximize, maximize, maximize.

"at the moment, the danger is that the scandals would be mixed in with the vote."Laura Bucher

Today, Bucher judge differentiated. It recognises the efforts of the HSG, the students also have something different to give as a business. Who is now studying at the HSG, in the basic studies, and Humanities. At the same time Laura Bucher is one of the sharpest critics of the scandals – because they recognize a System behind it. Since 2013, she is the President of the sub-Committee of education Department in the cantonal Parliament, since it has implications in every year, on irregularities in HSG-pocket Expenses and secondary jobs referred to. "Never is for something to happen."

Until now. To solid the misconduct. Too big for the Public. In the Discussions to the expense report also Civil made some critical (including the FDP-Faction leader Tinner). The SP-Green group submitted the request to postpone the referendum in June on the new Campus. "The distrust of the population is large. We support it, if the University of your hill is coming down. However, currently, the danger is that the scandals would be mixed in with the vote," says Laura Bucher.

Suddenly you want to change

The Civic to see the different, the University sees it differently. And she is apparently willing to change now but something. After the emotional debate in the cantonal Parliament, the HSG sent a letter to the Kantonsräte. "The University is aware that it is misconduct to mere individual cases. The confidence of the Public and the policy in the University has suffered", it says, and: "It is the guidance clear that a fundamental culture change is needed."

"We mean this very seriously," says Ulrich Schmid, a Slavist and for almost two weeks as the Vice-rector for external relations of the University is responsible. "It was a somewhat bumpy Start," he says, smiling. The two weeks have, however, changed a lot of things. The letter, a new expense rules an additional Prorektorat in the University administration with an Accounting specialist, staff interviews. On Friday a week ago, the University also announced a whole bunch of other measures. Central to this is a special examination of the Institute through their Executive committees, which should be completed in September. "For us, it is clear that a cultural change takes time. But we are willing to change to tackle," says Schmid.

Moves there something? "When they all stand with their backs to the wall, then it suddenly goes forward," says Beat Tinner in the office of the FDP in the bottom of the valley between Rosenberg and Freudenberg. "We'll see."
