Dean of Studies' Address

As the Dean of Studies of the Faculty of Business and Management, I invite you to engage in an intellectual journey with us – a journey that helps you to acquire knowledge and important skills, that exposes you to the world of academia and that allows you to meet new people and develop friendships.

At the Faculty of Business and Management, we put much emphasis on challenging our students, but also on caring for them. We offer a learning environment in which students can have close contact to each other and to our faculty. We expect students to be active participants in the learning process and to contribute their ideas, questions and critical remarks. After all, university education is not only about learning the “tools of the trade” but aims at a broader intellectual development. 

Our portfolio of studies consists of a Bachelor program in Management and Economics; six specialized Master programs; a Diploma program in International Economic and Business Studies as well as a PhD Program in Management. Our faculty members play an active role in their research communities – some of them are leading figures in their fields – and entertain close relationships with the business world. Our teaching is inspired by findings from research but also by an awareness of the practical demands that our graduates face when they enter the working world.

Last but not least, Innsbruck and its surroundings constitute an ideal environment not only for learning and contemplating, but also for relaxing, distracting, and enjoying.

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Martin Messner,
Dean of Studies
