for higher education institutions

MCI - your academic partner

With students stemming from 50 countries and lecturers from 35 different nations, as well as more than 300 partner institutions, MCI is one of the most international higher education institutions in Europe.

Students during lessons

More than 400 exchange students from across the globe come to study at MCI and essentially contribute to the international spirit of the Entrepreneurial School®.

Nestled in Tyrol’s breathtaking mountains, and centrally situated between Italy, Switzerland, and Germany, Innsbruck promises incoming students a truly unique experience abroad. The combination of modern teaching, studying in small groups, high-performance infrastructure, and a high level of support, create the perfect environment for effective learning.

MCI is one of only a handful of higher education institutions in the German-speaking world to have received the prestigious AACSB accreditation. Together, with consistent rankings among the top education institutions, and excellent survey results, this is testimony to the high quality and international standing of the Entrepreneurial School®.

MCI offers a range of cooperation opportunities for other institutions of higher education. Our International Relations Office is happy to provide you with further information and competent service.
