MCI | The Entrepreneurial School® in Innsbruck has great news to report: Once again, the renowned "U-Multirank", initiated by the European Commission, lists MCI as a top performer among the numerous universities and colleges taking part. With 16 top ratings, the Entrepreneurial School® also tops the Austrian ranking.

Outstanding: Study, Teaching & Learning and Knowledge Transfer

The Entrepreneurial School® received excellent ratings in the categories "Teaching & Learning" and "Knowledge Transfer". The qualification as well as the didactic skills of the research and teaching staff are awarded top scores. The fact that students generally complete their bachelor's and master's degrees within the minimum period of study is also particularly appreciated. In addition, the close cooperation with companies, numerous partnerships and spin-off activities contribute to a beneficial knowledge transfer.

Top feature: internationality

U-Multirank also awarded the MCI excellent positions in the "International Orientation" group, in particular for the high mobility of students, the numerous English-language study programs and the international composition of research and teaching staff and students.


Andreas Altmann, MCI Rector: "Quality is the result of years of continuous development. I am very pleased that our efforts are taking effect and I thank our great team and stakeholders from all over the world."

Annette Leja, Regional Minister for Science & Research Tyrol: "The Tyrolean university landscape has international appeal and attracts students from numerous countries. It is impressive to see how committed people at MCI are. I congratulate all those working at MCI on this impressive award and thank them for their outstanding contribution to Tyrol as a center of science and research!"

Brigitte Auer, Head of MCI Quality Management: "Participating in rankings and receiving feedback from students helps us to continuously develop our own processes and competencies. The gratifying results of the current ranking confirm our quality efforts and will also motivate us for the tasks ahead."

Oswald Wolkenstein, Tyrol Chamber of Commerce: "With MCI we have a dynamic entrepreneurial higher education institution whose charisma reaches far beyond our country. We see the repeated award as a mandate and an obligation to continue on the path we have chosen with energy, confidence and vigor."



Launched in 2008 at the initiative of the European Commission, U-Multirank is a unique international university ranking, characterized by a multi-dimensional approach, which in addition to the evaluation of publication and patent databases and statistical data also considers student evaluations. In total, feedback from more than 100,000 students on the quality of their university was included. The MCI has been participating in U-Multirank as of 2017 and has since achieved excellent results and top global rankings.
