Study Abroad: The International Student Exchange

paris We want you to go away. And return enriched. We support our students in their quests for international experience in two ways: the European Marketing Network and the MBA Programme of our partners. Continue reading to learn more.


European Marketing Network (EMN)


Since the winter semester of 1993, we have taken part as the only Austrian university in the EUROPEAN MARKETING NETWORK (EMN). This program enables students to participate in exchange programs at international universities for the duration of 3-12 months. Students can finish marketing courses, write their dissertations, or even arrange visits to learn about doctoral programs, whereby the graduated courses are credited towards their BWL-study in Innsbruck. Courses can also be taken in other economic fields. However, just as with selecting marketing courses, approval from the coordinator (Pauline Fußeis) and/or the faculty director is necessary. All nominated students will receive an ERASMUS scholarship.

Students in at least their fifth semester of study are eligible for exchange. Interested students must apply latest by April 30 for study during the fall semester, and mid October for study during the spring semester. All applications should be submitted to the office of Pauline Fußeis. Ms. Fußeis will provide you with more information about the university and the respective LV-offer. The selection of the students is handled by Hans Mühlbacher, whereby the most important criteria are achievements and commitment during the course of the students’ marketing studies. The processing is relatively simple. We send our nominations, with a short resume from each student and their selected courses, to the corresponding universities. The students then receive documents for registration and housing. We will then directly forward the completed applications for ERASMUS scholarships.

International MBA

Two internationally recognized Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs can, on special basis, become available during the year from alumni of the social- and economic sciences at the University of Innsbruck.

A.B. Freeman School of Business, Tulane University, New Orleans

Documents are available at the Office of Admissions at the A. B. Freeman School (telephone: (504) 865-5410 or by email: Apart from the application form, a translated and certified university transcript, two letters of recommendation, an essay detailing your expectations for the MBA, and the completion of the GMAT (Tulane average score: 650) and the TOEFL are necessary. Applications are due April 1, however, it is recommended to apply as early as possible since all applications are reviewed in an ongoing basis. Early completion of the GMAT and TOEFL is also advantageous.

The tuition for an academic year is currently about $24,000. International students will usually receive tuition scholarships in the amount of $10,000. Students should also expect to spend about $1,000 monthly on general costs (New Orleans does have plenty to offer!).
