*Number of credits depend on how many courses the SSE students can transfer to HSG
Graduation requirements differ: St Gallen requires a master thesis of 18 ECTS, while SSE requires a thesis of 30 ECTS. Because of this, SSE students spending their second year at St. Gallen will write and defend their thesis at St. Gallen (in compliance with all local rules and calendars), and, in addition, write a second thesis, for the remaining 12 ECTS, with an SSE supervisor. Both theses will be graded by an SSE examiner and should be submitted as one document under a common title in fulfilment of SSE graduation requirements.
