MCI welcomes co-financing by Federal State Tyrol

The Tyrolean Parliament has decided on investments in teaching, research and innovation from 2016 to 2020. With this it supports the creation of new opportunities for young people, and guarantees the competitiveness of Tyrol as a business location.

“Today’s decision of the Tyrolean Parliament gives us a strong foundation to continue our work and the success story of the Entrepreneurial School® also in the years to come”, MCI Rector Andreas Altmann states in a press release.

Following the Tyrolean Government, the Tyrolean Parliament now too agreed to invest a total of 43 million Euros in the study programs of Management Center Innsbruck and the Kufstein University of Applied Sciences.

The Federal State of Tyrol supplies MCI with 6,6 million Euros per year from 2016 to 2020 for research, teaching, and the transfer of knowledge. With a total annual budget of 30 million Euros, MCI thus obtains a solid basis for its work.

The expansion of study programs, especially in the area of Technologie & Life Sciences, but also in online and blended learning, have required intense work in the last few years.

“More than 2.500 students, whose number constantly tends to increase, can now actively shape their future, create a career path and secure their livelihood. Apart from that, the opportunities for study at MCI provide important stimuli for research, further education, innovation, and the transfer of knowledge”, as MCI Rector Altmann happily announces.

“We would particularly like to thank the Tyrolean Parliament and each of its members as well as the members of government Tyrolean Governor Günther Platter and Tyrolean Minister of Science Bernhard Tilg, who introduced the preliminary decision of the Tyrolean Government.”
