Competence Centers

Competence Centers are projects of several years duration during the course of which university chairs and enterprises collaboratively develop practical, generally applicable solutions. Enterprise specific adaptation and application of such solutions is dealt with in bilateral projects. Competence Centers are independent business divisions of BEI. Learn more about our divisions on the division page.

Consulting Project

Topics and issues that go beyond the scope of a Competence Center and/or require special confidentiality are dealt with in Consulting Projects. Such projects may include studies, assessments, evaluations, concepts, benchmarkings, trainings, or implementation assistance. Find some interesting project examples on our project references page.


BEI St. Gallen AG offers - based on well-established standards - benchmarking services and compares management structures of different companies for providing recommendations for improvement. In the context of our Competence Centers, we also develop new standards and maturity models.

Business Engineering Forum

The Business Engineering Forum is a two-day annual event for cross-industry knowledge exchange, with our Competence Centers presenting their latest results and discussing them with participants. Find some more information about the Business Engineering Forum on the official BE-Forum website.


All our Competence Centers offer e-mail newsletters on a regular basis, informing about the latest activities of the consortial projects, latest research results, and upcoming events. Please visit the websites of our
divisions to subscribe to the respective newsletter or have a look at our newsletter overview.
