From Europe to Hawaii via the East Coast | Global network of the Entrepreneurial School® grows to 310 partner universities | Opportunities for researchers, teachers and students
The Entrepreneurial School® cooperates with top international universities in various forms. A new exchange agreement was signed with the renowned University of Hawaii at Manoa, a double degree agreement was concluded with NEOMA University in France and finally the partnership agreement with Seton Hall University in the USA was extended for another five years.
University of Hawaii at Manoa
The University of Hawaii at Manoa is the flagship campus of the three-university network of Hawaii. It offers 200 study programs; the university was founded in 1907 and currently has about 18,000 students. It is the only AACSB accredited business school in Hawaii; an accreditation that MCI can also boast as one of the few German-speaking universities.Manoa is a district of Honolulu, the capital of Hawaii. Hawaii is known worldwide for its breathtaking beaches, Pacific lifestyle and is considered a surfer's paradise.
NEOMA Business School
Cooperation with NEOMA Business School dates back to 2007, since when dozens of students have been exchanged between MCI and NEOMA or its predecessor organizations. The cooperation has now been extended to include a double degree agreement; starting in 2022, MCI students of the Master's degree program in International Business & Law will be able to obtain an additional degree. NEOMA Business School has campuses in Reims, Rouen and Paris and, like MCI, has multiple international accreditations. The university was created in 2013 through the merger of two business schools, Reims Management School and Rouen Business School.
Seton Hall University
Last but not least, the contract with Seton Hall University in New Jersey/USA was extended for another five years and further activities were added (e.g. more study places, Study Abroad opportunities, etc.). Students of the Management, Communication & IT bachelor's program can spend a semester abroad at the oldest diocesan university in the United States, whose history dates back to 1856. The U.S. remains one of the most popular destinations for Austrian students, and Seton Hall University is a particularly desirable destination in this regard due to its reputation and campus located in close proximity to Manhattan. Its location in the East Coast state of New Jersey allows exchange students not only to experience the American way of life but also to take weekend trips to nearby major East Coast cities such as New York, Washington, Boston, or Philadelphia.
Susanne Lichtmannegger, Head of International Relations at MCI is proud: "International cooperation and student exchange are being put to the test during the Corona pandemic. I am all the more pleased that we are able to expand and extend our cooperation with top international universities."
