Practice Credits Practice credits are awarded for practical activities that are closely related to the MBF. We strongly encourage you to gain practical experience during your Master's studies and to contact potential employers. We award practice credits for practical activities that are closely related to the MBF. As first priority, practice credits are credited in the skills area; second priority is given to independent electives. A minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 practice credits can be awarded. Practice credits will not be graded. Practice credits may also be awarded for practical work you have completed no more than a year before you begin to study at the University of St.Gallen. Enrolled students will find all administrative details about the crediting of practical work in the MBF here.
