Lauder Business School is happy to announce the introduction of the Graduate Research Assistant Program (GRA) starting from the spring term 2017. This is an educational program providing students with relevant research experience while they pursue a Masters’ degree at LBS. Graduate Research Assistants (GRAs) work with faculty on academic and research projects, both at LBS and in the field.
The Institute for Advanced Studies (Institut für Höhere Studien, IHS) (link to http://www.ihs.ac.at/) developed a modular curriculum as part of the European project HEIRRI: Higher Education Institutions & Responsible Research and Innovation. The project aims to integrate the concept of “Responsible Research and Innovation”, or RRI, focusing on universities and other higher education institutions (HEI).
Ing. Mag. Robert Kotal CFP®EFA®, professor in the Banking, Finance and Compliance (BFC) master’s degree program at Lauder Business School, invited two guest lecturers to contribute their professional expertise to his teaching sessions. On November 21, 2016, Mag.

He has been a fund manager for 16 years and become a specialist for managing funds in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
A delegation from the Bangkok-based National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA) recently visited LBS as part of a study trip to Austria, the Czech Republic and Germany. NIDA is one of the most eminent Asian business schools in the Harvard MOC Network, of which also LBS is part.
In April 2016 16 students of Lauder visited the venerable “Looshaus” in the heart of Vienna which also is the home of Raiffeisen Private Banking as part of the MBFC course “Banking products and services”. This field trip was a great contribution to both students learning and course enjoyment.
After having studied the theoretical principles of managing projects, analyzing stakeholders and overseeing the entire process from initiation to completion, it was time for IBA 2014 students to practically apply what they learned.
