Education
Undergraduate Degree

The University of St. Gallen is a research university located in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Established in 1898, it is specialized in the fields of business administration, economics, law, and international affairs The University of St. Gallen is also known as HSG, which is an abbreviation of its former German name Handels-Hochschule St. Gallen.

The University of Cologne is founded. After Prague (1348), Vienna (1365) and Heidelberg (1386), Cologne is the fourth city to establish a university in the late medieval German Empire. The deed of foundation is signed by Pope Urban VI in Perugia. While many other universities founded in late medieval Germany owe their origins to the initiatives of prominent clerical and secular regents, it was the townspeople of Cologne who erected the city’s university. Hence, Cologne University is still today a city university in a twofold sense: it was founded by Cologne’s citizens and, even as a campus university, lies in the hub of the urban area. Its geographic location places it in the immediate vicinity of the sprawling Rhine-Ruhr industrial conurbation to the north and the city of Bonn to the south.
