On September 30, we are happy to virtually and personally welcome 175 new bachelor and master students from all around the world. Due to travel restrictions imposed as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have decided to start the fall term 2020/21 exclusively online, so that our students can participate in their courses and experience the full program from wherever they are.
We are delighted to announce that our students from the International Management & Leadership master program recently finalized their 8-month Student Consultancy Project under the title “Coca-Cola – Transforming Sustainability Efforts and Best Practices to the Customers’ mind”. The students collaborated tightly with the Marketing & Communications Team at Coca-Cola Austria GmbH and the project coordinator, Prof. (FH) Tamás Csermely, Ph.D., M.Sc.
On August 31, Lauder Business School students participated in the panel discussion “Resetting the agenda: Boosting the CEE economy post COVID-19” within the frame of the European Forum Alpbach 2020 supported by the Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI). Challenged and united by the same opponent, COVID-19, leaders of the financial and governmental institutions discussed recovery plans for life after the pandemic as well as redefining their economies on sustainable and digitally fit grounds.
Christian Reiner, senior researcher at the LBS, published a new peer reviewed journal article in the journal “Regional Science Policy & Practice” (RSPP) on the effects of globalization on structural change in the Austrian regions. He co-authored the paper with Sascha Sardadvar, who works as a senior researcher at WPZ Research in Vienna.
We are proud to announce that LBS faculty continues to innovate and improve the quality of our teaching methods. This ongoing development in teaching techniques was also recently officially acknowledged by including some of the LBS best teaching practices in the “Atlas of Good Teaching” managed by The Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research of Austria.
On June 16, 2020 our Head of Research and Senior Lecturer Dr. Christian Reiner was bestowed an FH (Fachhochschule – University of Applied Sciences) professorship title. Dr. Reiner has been a valued member of the Lauder Business School faculty team since 2016 and has led the research agenda ever since.
