Our Mission

Two strong convictions laid at the foundation of Lauder Business School (LBS). It aims at providing state-of-the-art business education to prepare our Bachelor and Master students for international business careers. Students benefit from Vienna which distinguishes itself as a major European business hub, displaying urban diversity and world-leading quality of life.

Applicability and employability are the guiding principles of the degree programs and extracurricular professional activities offered at LBS. What one studies here makes sense in the business world. Students are trained to communicate in several languages and across borders. And, most significantly, they are encouraged to practice hands-on in intensive project work, real-life business simulations and a compulsory practical training semester in the Bachelor’s Program. The Masters Program particularly offers the skills and expertise to move around safely and successfully in international business, be it as an entrepreneur, as a senior manager in an international corporation, in banks or financial institutions or as compliance expert.

Learning is most rewarding in an environment which caters for excellence in teaching, up-to-date library and IT facilities, innovative applied research, and a smooth administration. LBS is proud of being an organization, which actively listens to its students and employees to constantly improve its services. Building on a sustainable network with local and international partners and the growing alumni community, LBS is committed to career promotion and placement of students and graduates.

Whilst at LBS, students, faculty, and staff develop and refine the competences most asked for in today’s and tomorrow’s international business. To turn these joint efforts into real success, LBS looks for highly motivated, ambitious and open-minded students. Their creative input stands at center-stage, with dedicated teachers acting as facilitators to increase the performance and study outcomes. The hard facts and soft skills acquired at LBS initially pave the way into top-ranked traineeships, renowned further education programs, and middle management positions in the corporate world or one’s own enterprise. But one may dare think ahead: LBS business education is but a significant first step on professional trajectories leading up to the highest echelons of executive management and entrepreneurial success.

LBS students and graduates are equipped with a range of vital tools to master the challenges of globalized business and to become responsible leaders in their communities and in society at large.
