Erasmus +

The ERASMUS+ Program is the mobility program for students, academic as well as non-academic staff of the European Commission, based on the “Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020 (ECHE)” of participation institutions. MCI Management Center Innsbruck takes part in the ERASMUS+ program – our students and staff can therefore benefit of the activities of this European network. 

Erasmus+ is the new EU program for Education, Training, Youth and Sport for 2014-2020. In order to enable students to participate in the Erasmus+ program, MCI Management Center Innsbruck applied for the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education and received it in the spring of 2014. Scholarships are available in the framework of Erasmus+ for students wishing to enjoy the experience of a semester or internship abroad as an integral part of their studies.

Erasmus+ is a simplified collective replacement for existing programs such as Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink etc. Jean Monnet Chairs are one part of Erasmus+; currently MCI professor Dr. Markus Frischhut holds the Jean Monnet chair on European integration & Ethics: EuTHICS - European Integration & Ethics.

MCI International Relations Office participates in the WILLIAM initiative, a three-year capacity-building project funded by the European Commission aiming to advance the internationalization processes at Israeli universities. MCI will support Israeli universities in developing internationalization strategies and share its best practices. Several Israeli project partners including The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Ben Gurion University of the Negev and others, paid MCI a site visit in May 2019  to gain first-hand information on MCI’s internationalization processes.  For further details see:
