"How should you price your books? Is self-publishing a threat or an opportunity? How can you compete in today’s market that is dominated by giants like Amazon and start-ups that are digitalizing your “authentic” paper books? How can your book stand out to attract picky customers, who are kept busy with the glamour of motion and image? What is unique about books? Are books about ideology, entertainment or education? What is the future of book? Do these questions have different answers in Iran, Germany, China or elsewhere? If you are eager to know how academics, successful managers and experts think about these questions, I strongly suggest you attend this course."

"I found the combination of academic perspectives and pragmatic approach during the course extremely interesting and very useful. The group spanned four continents and all branches of the industry from children’s publishing to educational, academic, trade and consulting services. I have had a professional career for 25 years and I can truly say that this was the best course I have ever attended. I came away inspired and filled with new ideas, tools, and techniques that can be used to improve innovation and creativity, and lead organizations through change."

"Leadership, innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship were the overarching themes of the St. Gallen International Publishing Management Course 2013. The sessions combined theory and practice, and were run by internationally renowned academics from the fields of media studies, management and economics, all of whom consult and work closely with various industries. It was undoubtedly the most stimulating and practical publishing course I have ever attended. I came away inspired, renewed and filled with new ideas, tools and techniques that can be used to enhance innovation and creativity, and lead through change."

"I haven’t been in school for nearly a decade and I loved sitting down to learn about the latest research and trends in topics ranging from the role of consumer research in publishing innovation, cross media and cross platform strategies, the cultural frameworks of the current challenges confronting the book industry, and managing cultural innovation. Our professors not only came from illustrious academic backgrounds but had also worked as consultants to a wide range of Fortune 500 companies. They had seen how to apply their theories to real work environments in practical, useful ways."
