Lauder Business School (LBS) was founded in 2003 as a University of Applied Sciences (Akkreditierte Trägerin von Fachhochschulstudiengängen) with the aim of offering young people a first class business education on an extremely international campus in the heart of Central Europe. Our institution is a fully recognized and government-funded University of Applied Sciences. Our degree programs are in line with the Bologna requirements, accredited by the Austrian Agency for Quality Assurance and listed with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy.
Pursuant to section 4 sub-section 2 § 3 of the Universities of Apllied Sciences Studies Act (Fachhochschul-Studiengesetz, FHStG) as amended, an FH study program is to be designed in such a way that it can be completed in the prescribed time. Principally, attendance is obligatory for all courses unless this is precluded by the teaching method – meaning classes may be scheduled between 8.30 and 21.00 during the week (except for Fridays and Jewish holiday eves classes end between 15.00 – 16.00). In general it is neither possible nor recommended to combine working and studying. For this reason, only one FH degree program can be attended at a time.
