It was with great pleasure that the MCI received news of the latest Austrian university statistics, which were published a few days ago. The data published by the Ministry of Science for the academic year 2018/19 confirms that the Entrepreneurial School® in Innsbruck is one of the most international universities in Austria.

With 1,430 exchange students going abroad for a semester or full year to one of the 280 partner universities of the MCI (outgoings) or coming to the MCI from there (incomings), the Entrepreneurial School® achieves a mobility rate of 44.7 %, placing it among the top-ranking universities in Austria. Despite its manageable size (3,196 students in 2018/19), the MCI leaves disproportionately larger institutions behind, even in absolute numbers.*

According to Susanne Lichtmannegger, Head of the International Relations Office at the MCI, this result is based on a strategy of internationalization that has been consistently pursued over the years. The results include the impressive number of 280 partner universities around the world, 16 double-degree programs, 11 degree programs taught entirely in English, the international faculty and students from more than 60 nations.
