Fantastic Start of the Online International Business MBA at MCI

First online MBA in western Austria | modern didactic concept for working decision makers | students from all over the world | starting in autumn 2016: double degree option with renowned Royal Roads, Vancouver

The International Business MBA in a blended learning format first started at the Enterpreneurial School® last autumn. Since then, students from all over the world have been taking advantage of the opportunity to complete a degree program based on innovative technologies, taught fully in English. They are inspired by the didactic concept, which provides optimal compatibility of work, family and advanced education, as well as by the international context, which further enriches their studies.

In all, the master’s program comprises ten topic-centered modules. The main focus is on the areas of global management, strategy, entrepreneurship and leadership. Thanks to the intelligent mix of attendance modules, online modules and electronic media, the didactic concept differs significantly from conventional distance learning programs and, with its singular level of interactivity and practice-orientation, meets the highest standards in an increasingly digital world.

The scientific head of the MBA program, Professor Karin Sixl-Daniell, is a figurehead with outstanding online experience. Before her professorship at MCI she was active as an online lecturer and head of e-learning projects at renowned international higher education institutions, among others, in Singapore and Hong Kong.

MCI has been consistently following their digitalization strategy, which was started several years ago. Rector Andreas Altmann underlines: “Higher education too must not ignore the change that digitalization is bringing about. MCI has been able to gather exemplary e-learning know-how over the last few years. With the online MBA in International Business we have set an international bench mark.”

Double Degree Option with Renowned Royal Roadys University, Vancouver/Kanada
As a special asset, from autumn 2016 a double degree option in cooperation with the renowned Royal Roads University in Vancouver, Canada, will be open to students. Thanks to additional attendance and online modules at one of Canada’s leading universities, students are able to earn an additional master’s degree in global management. Susanne Herzog, head of MCI Executive Education, is pleased at this cooperation: “Royal Roads has specialized for years in blended learning programs and is one of the best universities in this area. The partnership offers extraordinary advantages to students of both schools.”
