On November 19, several of us LBS students (Ivana C., Danita M., Artem B., Mariia M., Irena K., Ori G., Andres S.) from the masters degree program IML 2014 undertook our first official visit to the Institute of Science and Technology (IST) Austria with our supervisors Prof. (FH) Mag. (FH) Miha and Prof. (FH) Dr. Pöschl. The aim of the visit was to set the ground for collaboration on a Student Consulting Project (SCP), recently assigned to us. The project’s objectives are to find potential industry applications and to prepare a commercialization plan for one of the recent IST technical inventions, namely the Commercialization Laminar Flow.

            The visit began with a presentation by Dr. Kühnen (IST Austria), who introduced and familiarized us with the technical invention put in pipelines. Although we LBS students do not have in-depth knowledge of physics and fluid dynamics, we found a common language with the IST scientists and quickly grasped the main points. During the meeting, both sides clarified both the potentials and the limitations of the IST prototypes that make turbulent flows laminar, thereby saving energy and reducing pumping costs. Furthermore, we had the opportunity to agree on terms of collaboration and on next steps.

            After the formal part of the meeting, Dr. Kühnen offered us a tour of the laboratories, lecture halls and campus premises. Eventually, we stayed in the cozy lounge with other IST Austria students and employees for a further chat, sharing a cup of coffee and enjoying the beautiful view of the campus pond.

The Economics of Climate Change

Christian Reiner, senior researcher at LBS, was invited by the Carinthian Economic Society (Volkswirtschaftliche Gesellschaft Kärnten) to deliver a talk on the economics of climate change. About 100 visitors attended the talk on October 3rd 2019 in Klagenfurt, Carinthia’s capital. Mr Reiner stressed the economic case for ambitious climate policy as well as the chances for business.

Master Class of 2019 – Congratulations!

On September 20, we were delighted to welcome many proud families and friends to the Lauder Business School campus for a Masters graduation ceremony. The ceremony started with a welcoming speech by our Executive Director Alexander Zirkler in the beautiful baroque LBS ballroom. In his address, he highlighted the international quality of both our Master programs and drew the parallel: “The value of your diplomas will increase in time like the value of a good painting.”
