More good news for the Entrepreneurial School®: The recently published results of the Universum Talent Research 2019 confirm the MCI's excellent results once again.

The survey results demonstrate highest rates of MCI student satisfaction with their university. This equivocates to 8.1 out of 10 possible points, which clearly sets it apart from the Austrian average of 7.5.  The students are particularly satisfied with the international recognition and international orientation of their university, the open and friendly environment at an attractive university location, and the pronounced prestige associated with an MCI education, with regard to the development of individual careers and career paths. This is also reflected in the impressive evaluation of Career Services. The students scored this with an outstanding 8 points, while the Austrian average is 6.5 points.

Universum is the global leader in Employer Branding and Talent Management. The globally active company, with its headquarters in Sweden, conducted the survey in Austria from November 2018 to March 2019, which involved 10,256 students. The results are part of the world's largest career test of its kind, involving more than 1 million students and young professionals alike. The MCI has taken part in the international study for many years and has continually achieved excellent results, year after year.


Bernhard Tilg, Regional Minister for Science and Chairman of the MCI General Assembly: "The results of the current Universum Talent Research survey once again reflect the high quality of education and service provided by the MCI, which is reflected not least in the high level of student satisfaction. I am proud that we can boast such an attractive university scene in our state thus providing the best-educated graduates with the most valuable opportunities for the future . "

Brigitte Auer, Head of MCI Quality Management:The continual excellent results achieved in the international Universum Talent Research study reinforces our commitment to our strategy of international orientation, quality in teaching and research, and the further expansion of our services, above all, Career Services."

Andreas Altmann, MCI Rector: "This new award is a credit to our entire team, and is based on a clear commitment to performance, commitment and responsibility on the part of our students, sponsors, stakeholders and partners alike.”
