Our News & Announcements
On October 23, FH Technikum and Insticore announced integration between the two academic environments to streamline a complete blockchain education program in Vienna. The experience and status of FH Technikum as a top-provider of technical education in Austria, and the business and economic background of Insticore, incubated by the Lauder Business School, allows the two to carry out a complete blockchain program for those interested in becoming experts in this new technology.
Christian Reiner, senior researcher at LBS, published a book chapter on firm innovation together with Katerina Vrtikapa. The paper is a chapter in the book “Umkämpfte Technologien. Arbeit im digitalen Wanel”, edited by the „Beirat für gesellschafts-, wirtschafts- und umweltpolitische Alternativen“ (BEIGEWUM).
Dr. Christian Reiner, Senior Researcher at LBS, gave a presentation on the internationalization of firms at a seminar for Austrian teachers at secondary schools on 12.October 2018. The seminar was organized by the Institut für Österreichkunde and the Österreichische Geographische Gesellschaft.
Firms with international activities, i.e. exports and/or foreign direct investment, are quite distinct from firms with no international orientation. In addition, exports are heavily concentrated; a small share of exporters account for a large share of exports.
We are happy to report on one of our successful internships by bachelor graduate Gioia Stanisavljevic as part of the LBS International Business Administration program. Gioia worked as a Management Trainee at LKW WALTER for the past six months and her experience was very rewarding.
As she explains in the interview: „I was relatively quickly allowed to participate operationally in the France-Czech Republic department, and have already supported the Division Manager, processed orders and even done some scheduling. As a part of the program I also attended the traineeship courses, where I got more of an inside knowledge regarding the logistics and transport itself.”
Christian Reiner, senior researcher at LBS, has co-authored with Christian Bellak, Professor of economics at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, three blogposts on the new power of firms in Europe and in the US. The three essays (in German) are now available as a Working Paper No 4 as part of the LBS working paper series.
Lauder Business School is delighted to introduce the start-up Insticore, the first future-tech academy in Austria. To start off their venture, Insticore will focus on blockchain and artificial intelligence education, with further prodigious plans and ideas in the pipeline. LBS as incubator is excited to expand its activities by following the latest trends in technology. “We see the intertwining of business and the newest technology as one of our long-term goals”, explains the LBS Executive Director Alexander Zirkler.
We are very pleased to announce the beginning of the new academic year 2018/2019 on October 4!

What Our Graduates Say
"My experience at LBS was great and unique! During my studies of “Intercultural Management and Leadership” I received a profound knowledge in the area of my interest and met long-life friends. LBS had a significant impact on my personal development. There I experienced studying and working in a highly international environment, which ultimately defined my career path."
Global LT, Recruiter EMEA
"Keep it real 🙂 Study hard and make great friends. Don’t shy away from any challenges and try to dream big. Nothing is impossible when you try just a little harder. LBS was a great stepping stone for me and enabled me to achieve great heights in my career later on. I’m humbled to say that it all started in LBS!"
R2G Digital, Founder & CEO
"Lauder Business School is where I learned my business ABC’s and where I laid the first cornerstones of building my professional network. One of the best memories from studying there would have to be the classes with Prof. Christian Mehlich and the mentorship conversations with him outside the classroom."
Microsoft, Marketing Manager
"Lauder Business School Vienna provided me with the practical learning approach, developed using-real life case studies. Those allowed me to look at real business challenges from a CFO / CEO perspective, while being a pragmatic authoritative leader. Also, I had the precious opportunity of being taught by Prof. Joel Stern, which was an absolutely breath-taking experience. One thing I wanted to take away from this program, in addition to the leadership component, was a better understanding of initiating change in today’s uncertain financial markets."
