The Entrepreneurial School® expands its network by entering into new partnerships with renowned US institutions, namely Texas A&M University, Texas and Pepperdine University, California

Recently, Management Center Innsbruck was able to sign partnership agreements with two top American universities: Texas A&M University in Texas and Pepperdine University in California. With this, the Entrepreneurial School® can accommodate the students’ increasing desire to study in the US.

Texas A&M University is located in College Station, Texas, only 150 kilometers northwest of Houston. The university is a member of the Association of American Universities, an organization of leading research universities in North America which was founded in 1900. Furthermore, the indeed most important international university ranking – the Shanghai Ranking – lists the Texan university among the 100 best universities in the world. In addition, Texas A&M University is home to the George Bush Presidential Library.

Pepperdine University is situated in Malibu and currently ranked 50th in the U.S. News & World Report ranking of best American colleges. The university was additionally honored when the Princeton Review gave it the Dorms Like Palaces Award. Pepperdine University offers graduate courses at several campuses, which include Los Angeles, Irvine, San Jose, Encino, and Westlake Village .

MCI Rector Andreas Altmann is delighted: “The prestigious AACSB accreditation awarded to MCI in 2016 is testimony to our ability to compete with the best of America’s universities. We are delighted that this allows us to further expand such high-quality cooperation partnerships.” Susanne Lichtmannegger, head of the MCI International Relations Office, adds: “With these partnerships we can offer our students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We are particularly pleased to also welcome students from Pepperdine University and Texas A&M University to Innsbruck.”
