Vision & Mission

Our Mission

Two strong convictions laid at the foundation of Lauder Business School (LBS). It aims at providing state-of-the-art business education to prepare our Bachelor and Master students for international business careers. Students benefit from Vienna which distinguishes itself as a major European business hub, displaying urban diversity and world-leading quality of life.

Applicability and employability are the guiding principles of the degree programs and extracurricular professional activities offered at LBS. What one studies here makes sense in the business world. Students are trained to communicate in several languages and across borders. And, most significantly, they are encouraged to practice hands-on in intensive project work, real-life business simulations and a compulsory practical training semester in the Bachelor’s Program. The Masters Program particularly offers the skills and expertise to move around safely and successfully in international business, be it as an entrepreneur, as a senior manager in an international corporation, in banks or financial institutions or as compliance expert.

Learning is most rewarding in an environment which caters for excellence in teaching, up-to-date library and IT facilities, innovative applied research, and a smooth administration. LBS is proud of being an organization, which actively listens to its students and employees to constantly improve its services. Building on a sustainable network with local and international partners and the growing alumni community, LBS is committed to career promotion and placement of students and graduates.

Whilst at LBS, students, faculty, and staff develop and refine the competences most asked for in today’s and tomorrow’s international business. To turn these joint efforts into real success, LBS looks for highly motivated, ambitious and open-minded students. Their creative input stands at center-stage, with dedicated teachers acting as facilitators to increase the performance and study outcomes. The hard facts and soft skills acquired at LBS initially pave the way into top-ranked traineeships, renowned further education programs, and middle management positions in the corporate world or one’s own enterprise. But one may dare think ahead: LBS business education is but a significant first step on professional trajectories leading up to the highest echelons of executive management and entrepreneurial success.

LBS students and graduates are equipped with a range of vital tools to master the challenges of globalized business and to become responsible leaders in their communities and in society at large.

Our Vision

Forging the entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs of tomorrow

Lauder Business School was founded on the philanthropic principle of making a contribution towards a just, diverse and humane world through education, research and knowledge transfer. As a Jewish institution of higher learning it serves as a bridge between the past and the challenges of a responsible future as well as to promote equal opportunities for young people as an educational axis between East and West in the heart of Europe.
Lauder Business School offers students the chance to study both the global economy and international business by merging the best that the American business educational system has to offer – in particular the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania/Wharton – with the finest European business tradition.

Lauder Business School values and supports entrepreneurial spirit, creativity and innovation, and bases its programs on trust, openness, sustainability, and the freedom of science and education.
