Aspects of Responsible Management are covered in numerous courses. In the course "Business Ethics" you can combine and deepen these different aspects.

Blended Learning at MCI

The online Bachelor study program at MCI follows a blended learning concept combining asynchronous study with synchronous study modes and mandatory face-to-face seminars (up to 10 days per semester). These mandatory residential seminars are held on the MCI campus in Innsbruck and usually take two consecutive days.

Learning Goals

In order to ensure the transfer of learning and to enable students to develop relevant competencies, MCI has defined clear cross-curricular learning goals. These describe, in detail, the knowledge and skills acquired by our graduates on completion of their studies at MCI.

Our graduates demonstrate proficiency in applying entrepreneurial thinking and strategies to identify market opportunities, solve complex problems, and create innovative solutions, considering ethical issues.

Learning objectives Business Administration Online

Graduates will have the necessary management skills to address the current and future challenges inherent in the digital era.

Students will develop the ability to draw on multiple subjectsto develop solutions for business challenges.

Studying Abroad

One of the most essential components of MCI study programs is their international orientation. This is reflected not only in the curriculum and assigned projects, but also in the backgrounds of our faculty and students. The program also includes the opportunity for students to spend the 5th semester abroad at one of MCI’s many partner institutions.


The transfer of knowledge from the university to business practice is an important part of this study program. Students who are already working are supported in applying what they have learned immediately. 


Our department and the MCI Career Center regularly provide up-to-date information about internship positions and the situation on the labor market in general.

As part of practice-oriented projects, students are provided with the opportunity to work with local and international businesses. This allows them to immediately apply their newly acquired knowledge in practice and in collaboration with the project team. Their theoretical knowledge is further deepened by a mandatory internship of several weeks duration.

As Business Administration Online is a part-time study program, the internship requirement can be waived for students with at least two years’ relevant professional experience. In all other cases, students in the 6th semester are expected to complete a relevant internship lasting at least ten weeks.

Sabine Weißbriacher, Graduate Business Administration Online

In addition to the business-related content, I have learned a lot of new things about
e-learning and various online tools. Due to the great experience in the Bachelor's
program, I am already looking forward to the online Master's program in Corporate
Governance & Finance.

The blended learning concept was a prerequisite for me to be able to study and stay in my
job at the same time. The perfect mix of MCI WEBINARS, face-to-face modules and the personal
interaction with colleagues and lecturers enabled me to complete the Bachelor program

Business Administration Online made it possible for me to study. I can study no matter
where I am at the moment. I can immediately apply what I have learned and, in return,
bring my professional experience into my studies.

Liezl Groenewald, Senior Manager: Organisational Ethics, President: Business Ethics Network of Africa (BEN-Africa), Independent Non-Executive Member of Council: CPUT

In my current positions as Senior Manager Organisational Ethics at The Ethics Institute in South Africa and President of the Business Ethics Network of Africa, I have vast exposure to, and experience in, the application of business ethics theory in practice. It is sometimes, especially with a study field such as ethics, difficult to translate theory into everyday practice in a working environment. I am pleased that I can use my theoretical knowledge and practical experience to assist students in this regard.

Continue studying

The MCI offers a number of internationally oriented Master's courses. The master program in Business Psychology & Management is aimed directly at the graduates of this bachelor program. The completion of a master's degree qualifies for the relevant doctoral studies.

Questions and Answers

The program is particularly suitable for people who have additional commitments or occupations that do not allow them to take up a full-time study program at MCI.

For example, if you

  • care for you child or children
  • are already studying at another university and are looking for a second degree in business administration
  • are a professional sportsman or professional musicians
  • are self-employed

Yes. To be admitted to a part-time course you are not required to be employed (full-time). Part-time studies are specially adapted to accommodate (full-time) employees in terms of structure and time model, but can also be completed by full-time students. 

Other than in traditional distance learning programs, students have close contact and much personal exchange with fellow students and lecturers in this study program. Although you can enjoy a great deal of flexibility in terms of time and place when studying Business Administration Online, the course structure and deadlines help you to actually complete your studies after three years. In the Business Administration Online program, courses take place online and at the MCI in Innsbruck.

This study program includes two types of classes, online sessions (MCI WEBINARS) and on-campus classes, both of which are mandatory. There are two online sessions per week in the evening (Monday & Tuesday). On-campus classes are usually held in condensed form, extending over two consecutive days (Friday & Saturday). Each semester, there are 3 on-campus phases à 2 days in Innsbruck. In the first semester, you will also have an introduction day at the beginning of the semester.

The semester schedule including all dates for both the online and on-campus classes will be communicated to you in due time prior to the start of the respective semester (typically by the end of August for the winter semester, and by the end of January for summer semester)

Yes, the tracks include the same modules and are often taught by the same lecturers.

No, a change from one track to the other during studies is not possible.

eCampus facilitates studying online with a high level of autonomy in time and place. The learning platform Sakai is our main communication tool. You can access this online platform and all relevant course materials and tools from anywhere at any time. The conference solution Adobe Connect is used for the online MCI WEBINARS. Through the personal customized learning environment on MCI eCampus, you receive the latest updates, e-mails, and all necessary information, so that you can fully concentrate on your studies. Assignments and tests to check the personal learning progress, plus discussion forums and moderated chats, further facilitate your online study process.

As a student, you can download the teaching and learning materials from eCampus and work on them when and where it suits you. While working autonomously, you are still always in contact with faculty, fellow students and the MCI’s support services.

You will be in a virtual classroom at the same time as your fellow students and the lecturer. You can see the lecturer’s slides and hear the explanations through your headset. You can speak via chat or microphone to ask or answer questions. There are many ways to interact in a MCI WEBINAR, from polls to small group work in separate virtual rooms. In principle, any activity that can be carried out in a seminar room can be performed in a MCI WEBINAR.

All you need is a laptop or computer, a headset, a webcam and a stable internet connection. In addition, a standard office software (MC Office / Open Office) and a current web browser are required. At the beginning your studies, you will get an introduction to the software used and the learning management system. You do not need any special prior knowledge.

Examinations for online study programs can be organized in a variety of ways. Written tests take place during on-campus sessions at MCI in Innsbruck. Oral examinations or examinations in the form of a presentation may be held online or on-campus. Further assessment, such as papers, projects in video or audio format, group and forum discussions, may take place throughout the semester. You have to submit these assignments (online) by the given deadline date.

Yes, regular attendance at both online and on-campus classes is mandatory for all students. Up to 25 percent of unexcused absence is permissible. Absence of an additional 25 percent of a course is accepted if a valid (e.g. health or work) reason is given. You have to communicate any absence from a course to your department or lecturer beforehand.

The first semester starts at the beginning of September with an on-campus weekend at MCI in Innsbruck. During these introduction days, you will not only get to know the lecturers and MCI, but above all your new fellow students. You will also receive training in our learning management system and MCI WEBINAR software, so that you are perfectly prepared for your online studies. During this first on-campus weekend, lectures of the first two courses will already take place.

In the fifth semester, you can choose between two electives: "Digital Workplace Learning" or "Innovation & Entrepreneurship". In "Digital Workplace Learning" you will deepen your knowledge of digitisation in the field of human resource management. In this way, you will not only become an expert in e-learning through your online studies, but you will also know how to implement e-learning in a company. In addition, you will learn more about knowledge management in organizations.

In the module "Innovation & Entrepreneurship" you will deal with instruments of corporate foresight and deal with economic, technological but also social trends. A special focus will be placed on digital transformation. In addition, you will have the opportunity to acquire start-up competencies in this module.

In both electives, you can choose one course freely. Here, you can take a course offered by a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) provider (for example Coursera). The head of studies has to approve the course (quality of the provider as well as the relevance of the course) beforehand.

With a focus on application-oriented content and practice-oriented examples, our courses link science and business practice. Some courses such as "Case Study and Integrative Exam" and "Digital Project Management & Applied Project" are dedicated specifically to this topic. We also have experts from the business world as lecturers or invite them to give guest lectures at the MCI. If you do not have any relevant professional experience, you will complete an internship as part of your studies and thus gain deeper insights into a specific company.

No, at MCI you can only start studying in the winter semester.

We would certainly recommend that you inform your employer. This is because:

  • on-campus sessions may require you to take several days off work, for which you will need your employer’s assent
  • during your studies at MCI, we may ask you to provide relevant documents or confirmations relating to your work, such as when you are unable to attend class due to work obligations, or need to have your internship recognized and credited.

In each application round, places are allocated on a rolling basis. Therefore, we recommend that you apply early. Applicants who achieve an above-average performance in the application procedure are admitted immediately after assessment of their results, i.e. within 14 days of the completion of the exam. All other applicants will be put on a waiting list until the end of the application period. Should one of the applicants admitted not accept the study place offered to him or her, the applicant highest on the waiting list will be offered their place, and so on. This opportunity will remain until the beginning of the respective semester.

Multiple applications are welcome as long as a plausible reason is provided in your cover letter. If you are admitted to two or more study programs, you are required to inform us of your final decision by the conclusion of the application procedures.

Yes. Applying for both programs will increase your chances of receiving a place in either one of the track.

Yes, it is possible and it is even recommended that you apply before obtaining your school-leaving certificate in order to secure one of the limited places in your desired study program. Please include your most recent certificates available in your application. Should your application be successful, you may submit the relevant school-leaving certificate at a later date.

Each application procedure consists of several rounds. You may apply during one round only and once altogether in an application year. Should your application be rejected, you may apply again in the following year.

The admission procedure consists of an interview and your application documents including a compelling letter of motivation. The evaluation of the respective admission round (interview and application documents) takes about two weeks. After this period, we inform you of our decision by e-mail. If you are accepted, you will receive the study contract and further information in the following days. To secure your place, please return the signed study contract within 14 days and pay the tuition fees.

Our application interviews take place online. This means that you can also participate in the admissions process from abroad. However, please make sure you have a sufficiently good internet connection.

For citizens of the following countries, the tuition fee is 363 euros per semester plus a fee for compulsory membership to the Austrian National Union of Students:

  • EU citizens,
  • EEA and Swiss citizens, and
  • non-EU citizens who, according to § 2 of the University of Applied Sciences Studies Act, are subject to § 1 of the Regulation on Eligible Groups of Persons (see Federal Law Gazette II No. 340/2013, in its current version).

For students of non-EU countries not considered eligible according to above regulations, the tuition fee is as follows:

  • Bachelor’s courses: 6,250 euros / semester plus compulsory Austrian National Union of Students membership fee
  • Master’s courses: 6,250 euros / semester plus compulsory Austrian National Union of Students membership fee

Your application documents regarding nationality will be assessed in detail as part of your admission procedure. Scholarships are available for applicants from non-EU countries and can be applied for as part of your online application.

A full or partial recognition of qualifications and professional experience - where relevance to the degree has been established - can be granted upon admission to the respective program.

  • Studies: Qualifications gained as part of a degree program at a national or international university, university of applied sciences or other institution of higher education or as part of other courses of study may be counted towards your studies, only where relevant proof is provided.

The recognition of qualifications merely exempts the student from his or her responsibility to attend a respective course. However, the sitting of the final exam of the course is required.

  • Internship: Students with a minimum of two years practical experience may apply for exemption from the mandatory internship.

The Bachelor program Business Administration Online requires students to complete a relevant internship of at least 10 weeks in a domestic or foreign company. Students with a relevant professional experience can apply for an exemption from the mandatory internship. Therefore, depending on your professional experience, you might not have to take time off work to complete the internship.

Of course it is our goal that as many of our students as possible complete their Bachelor's degree after six semesters and we are also very proud that our drop-out rate is no higher than in attendance courses. However, we also know that there are good reasons why it might be difficult to successfully continue your studies - for example, if your life circumstances change and a new job requires more time. Therefore, it is possible to interrupt your studies once and continue them at a later date. In this case, please contact the department at an early stage.
