MCI Rector Andreas Altmann welcomes start of architectural competition

New campus of Entrepreneurial School® taking shape

Andreas Altmann, Rector of MCI, is delighted to hear that the Federal State of Tyrol and the City of Innsbruck have just reached an agreement on how to proceed in the matter of a new campus for MCI. The agreement marks the beginning of an architectural competition for one of the most important and successful future projects in Innsbruck and Tyrol.
“MCI’s 20-year long history provides an exemplary story of success: From a modest office with discarded furniture the Entrepreneurial School® has evolved into a thriving business which manages an annual budget of 31 million euros and pays local taxes in the amount of more than 300.000 euros per year. 7.000 internationally successful graduates, 3.000 motivated students, 1.000 committed tutors as well as numerous awards and top positions in surveys and rankings confirm the validity of MCI’s concept, the potential of the team, and the efficiency of the applied methods of teaching. The realization of a new MCI campus in the heart of the Tyrolean capital creates new opportunities for solution-oriented research, high-quality teaching, continuous innovation, international encounters, and close collaborations with the business world. Due respect is to be shown to Tyrolean governor Günther Platter and Mayor of Innsbruck Christine Oppitz-Plörer, as well as all other figures who were actively involved in making this vital decision, particularly in view of the current financial challenges and scarce funding”, as Rector of the Entrepreneurial School® concludes.
