You will receive the 20% of your funding to your account only when you submit the Confirmation of Attendance to the Lauder Business School International Office.

Application Procedure & Deadlines

The application for an ERASMUS+ exchange at the Lauder Business School takes place at the International Office; the person in charge of processing the applications and nominating the selected students is the ERASMUS+ coordinator.

SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION ACCORDING TO THE REGULATIONS AT YOUR UNIVERSITY WITHIN THE APPLICATION DEADLINES.

The International Office of your home university will help you in filling out the required documents. For applying at Lauder Business School you need to send a pre-filled Learning Agreement BEFORE Mobility to the LBS International Office (see section “Necessary Documents and Downloads”). The LBS International Office will also support you in getting access to the course contents (syllabi) and provide you with organizational information.

Please acquaint yourself with the regulations relating entry permission and residence (Visa) for your stay in Austria!

There is a dormitory on the LBS campus. If you would like to stay in a room in this dormitory during the time of your exchange, please refer to [email protected] for further assistance. In case there is no room available in the dormitory she will also assist you in finding another housing facility.

Financial Matters & Reporting Duties

The amount of the grant for the students from Israel to Austria comes to € 850.00 per month. You will receive 80% of the whole grant at the beginning of your ERASMUS+ stay. As soon as you are in Austria you will have to open a bank account at an Austrian Bank institute. You will need the bank account details for completing the grant agreement document, which will be issued by the LBS International Office. Once you signed the grant agreement document at the LBS International Office, 80% of the funding will be transferred to your Austrian bank account.

The rest of the amount (20%) will be paid after your ERASMUS+ stay when having finished following reporting duties:

  • Confirmation of recognition of the LBS courses at your home university (within 5 weeks after your departure from LBS)
  • Report of min. 500 words including 5 pictures of your stay at LBS in Vienna
  • Answering the EU-Survey (automatically sent by OeAD to your mailaddress, please check your mails and also your Spam folders!)

If your stay turns out to be shorter than originally planned, the corresponding amount will be deducted from your grant proportionally.

For keeping your home university up to date and for confirmation of the alignment with your home university’s expectations in regard of your exchange you will have to fill in a Learning Agreement DURING mobility (see section “Necessary Documents and Downloads”) in case there come up any changes compared to your firstly signed Learning Agreement BEFORE Mobility (e.g. change in the courses you’ve chosen). This Learning Agreement DURING Mobility has to be signed by you, the responsible contact person at your home university and the respective LBS director of studies in the middle of your stay at LBS before it is sent to the LBS International Office.

Before your return, the exchange student will have a final meeting with the Lauder Business School and the Director of Studies to discuss his impressions of the stay.

In cases where evidence of recognition cannot be supplied, or where it is insufficient, and the fault lies with the student, the mobility grant may be entirely or partially reclaimed.

Double funding is not permitted. If you receive another scholarship, stipend or funding from other programs, you are not eligible for Erasmus+.

Erasmus+ funds mobilities of 12 months in each study cicle (e.g. BA =12 months, MA=12 months, PhD=12 months). If you have already participated in an Erasmus+ Exchange (including Erasmus Mundus) please indicate that in the Learning Agreement BEFORE Mobility (see section “Necessary Documents and Downloads”).

Tuition fees
Under the ERASMUS+ program, host institutions (LBS in this case) are not entitled to charge tuition fees.
Please ask your Program Coordinator or International Office which rules apply at your universtiy.

Researching Real Estate Economics

Christian Reiner, senior researcher at LBS, has published a peer-reviewed article with the title “Concordance of office market cycles? Dynamics in European metropolises in the context of the financial and economic crisis”. The paper is joint work together with Robert Musil from the Austrian Academy of Sciences. It is published in the well-established, peer-reviewed German journal “Zeitschrift für Wirtschaftsgeographie”. The topic of the paper is strongly related to the LBS study program Strategic Finance & Business Analytics.
