These buildings (except for the new building with the auditorium and dining room) comprise a former palace of Empress Maria Theresa, given to her by Emperor Charles IV and built by Nicolò Pacassi. Later the building was owned by members of the Rothschild family and served as a hospital. The conversion and extension of the baroque ensemble of Lauder Business School was done by the Berlin-based architecture firm Kuhn Malvezzi. The modernistic auditorium was built in 2003 with the support of Bank Austria Creditanstalt.
Lauder Business School is honored to operate in this historic surrounding of immense cultural value. The LBS campus is an inspiring place for our students to develop their entrepreneurial talents and nurture the knowledge required for the business of tomorrow. The campus spirit not only enriches the lives of our students but also of our staff and faculty members, shaping a collaborative and diverse campus community that inspires excellence.
