What is NMUN?​

Model United Nations (MUN) is a simulation of the United Nations in which students typically roleplay delegates of UN-countries. This activity takes place at MUN conferences, organized by universities all over the world. NMUN is one of the largest and oldest MUN conferences and takes places every spring in New York.

Thousands of college students from all over the world participate in NMUN, which involves substantial research, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. The University of St. Gallen has been sending successful delegations to NMUN for more than 10 years. To become part of the delegation, students from all backgrounds are welcomed to join the NMUN Bachelor course.
