‘Industry magazine’ selects Austria's best MBA providers | 2nd place in recommendation rate among a total of 18 Austrian MBA providers
Once again, MCI is pleased to share good news. In the recently published MBA ranking of the Austrian ‘Industry magazine’, the Entrepreneurial University® has the second best recommendation rate amongst all Austrian MBA providers examined.
According to the study, the MCI has a high recommendation rate as well as an above-average level of awareness. Years ago, the MCI began converting its MBA programs to blended learning system with mobile and online formats. Working students not only want an MBA program that promotes career development and prepares them for international challenges in a dynamic, rapidly changing environment, but also that its didactic format is suitable for managers whose professional activities cannot be limited to a single location. "Our MBA programs are based on MCI's more than 20 years of expertise in executive education and training, coupled with an intelligent blended learning concept. Periods of presence on campus are supplemented by synchronous and asynchronous online courses in which students can take part regardless of where they are," explains Susanne E. Herzog, Head of MCI Executive Education and Program Manager. This concept combines the best of both worlds. The online elements make it easier to reconcile work, further education and family. Students come to the campus to get to know each other, for the personal exchange between students and lecturers and for the important networking opportunities.
The study of the ‘Industry magazine’ reassured this successful approach: Executives decide on an MBA to improve their professional and personal development. In addition to the flexibility that comes with online learning, managers also value personal interaction, joint learning and networking directly at the university. All of which are key concepts of the blended learning concept at MCI.
In March 2020, the opinion research institute IMAD surveyed 151 managing directors and human resource managers of Austrian companies on behalf of the industry magazine. The survey examined the level of awareness of Austrian MBA providers, the willingness to recommend MBA providers to others and basic expectations of an MBA program. The top 100 companies in each federal state formed the population of the survey.
