Where Innovation and Business Come Together

Welcome to the LBS FutureRoom

Lauder Business School offers future-oriented education with the goal to shape the digital world of tomorrow. With our focus on innovation, emerging technologies and entrepreneurship we aim to design the landscape and the industries of the future. As we move forward, more and new exciting fields are opening up while very few have the expertise to undertake the tasks involved. In our LBS FutureRoom, you will find information on current educational programs, supporting agencies and guides, as well as upcoming events in this field in Vienna.

Responsible Blockchain Education

Blockchain is one of the key technologies that can radically change our economy and society as a result of digitization. It is still at an experimental stage, but advances in technology evolution are increasingly demonstrating the disruptive potential of blockchain. It paves the way for a networked world in which people and machines not only exchange information, but can work together beyond today’s usual boundaries of trust. These groundbreaking changes will affect us as individuals, but also our businesses.

Lauder Business School and Insticore have come together with FH Technikum Wien and joined their two academic environments to streamline a complete blockchain education program in Vienna. The experience and status of FH Technikum Wien as a top-provider of technical education in Austria, and the business and economic background of Insticore and Lauder Business School, allow us to carry out a complete, in-depth blockchain education for those interested in becoming experts in this new technology.
