For around 20% of their degree program at the OST, students of Business Administration and Business Information Technology work on a rolling program of real-life student consulting projects with companies and institutions in the market. The Knowledge Transfer Unit (WTT for short) is responsible for the marketing, acquisition, project implementation management and debriefing for all of these real-life student consulting projects at the OST St.Gallen Business School. These account for almost 20% of the Bachelor’s program.
Each year, the WTT acquires around 100 team-based real-life student consulting projects and 150 individual projects (Bachelor’s Theses) for a total of around 600 students. Nine real-life student consulting project programs per year are conducted with students, lecturers, and businesses or organisations under the direction of the WTT.
The Knowledge Transfer Unit is partly self-financing and is always market-driven. It serves as a bridge between academia and business. In doing so, it draws on the skills and experience of some 50 lecturers, who are involved in the real-life student consulting projects as coaches. The WTT work culminates in the annual WTT YOUNG LEADER AWARD, which recognises and honours the best real-life student consulting project teams in the categories of Market Research and Management Design in collaboration with a large group of sponsors.
