Raiffeisen Awards ceremony at MCI

Partnership between Management Center Innsbruck and Raiffeisen-Landesbank Tirol AG leads to two attractive scholarships

As a long-term partner and sponsor of MCI, Raiffeisen appreciates academic education as a valuable resource for personal, entrepreneurial, and social development. For this reason, Raiffeisen-Landesbank Tirol AG (RLB) is again sponsoring two attractive scholarships, which have now been presented to the awardees in a festive atmosphere.

2017 Raiffeisen Award
The Raiffeisen Award at MCI is awarded annually for selected academic further training programs and supports motivated people who have demonstrated extraordinary personal and professional performance during their studies at MCI. The prize of 3,000 euros goes to Julia Sparber-Ablinger this year. With the help of the scholarship she will take the "Management, Psychology & Leadership" certificate course. Mrs. Sparber-Ablinger sees this as an ideal addition to her many years of professional experience as an editor of various media such as the economic magazine eco.nova or the Tiroler Krone as well as a cultural manager. With the course she would like to prepare herself for the future assumption of responsibility in a leadership position.

2017 Raiffeisen International Awards
With the Raiffeisen International Award, RLB supports outstanding MCI students who are planning their foreign semesters outside the EU. Selection criteria for winning the award are the past career, professional objectives and added value that the selected host university can contribute to the implementation of the professional plans. One scholarship each in the amount of 1,000 euros goes to Franziska Brunner and Claudia Postulka .
The Tyrolean Raiffeisen banks and the Entrepreneurial School® congratulate the prizewinners and wish them all the best for their studies (abroad) and further professional development.
