Mission statement teaching

Studying at our Faculty of Business Administration will enable you to deal responsibly with complex socio-economic issues. As part of the Leopold Franzens University of Innsbruck, we are a place of constantly renewing, diverse knowledge with social relevance. Our globalised economy offers diverse opportunities and produces complex problem situations. The guiding question of science - Is there an alternative? - brings our society the necessary diversity of perspectives so that we can make better use of the opportunities and solve the complex socio-economic problems in a more sustainable way. Therein lies the meaning of university education - a clear 'added value' beyond a good education.
