Study Programs

Lauder Business School offers 3 different business degree programs

Where it all begins

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 University of Applied Sciences Act (Fachhochschulgesetz – FHG) 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 (classes end early on Friday afternoons and the day before Jewish Holidays). For this reason, only one FH degree program can be attended at a time.

ACBSP Accreditation 

In 2018, Lauder Business School began the extensive process of getting its study programs recognised for their excellence in the Unites States, by the U.S. quality assurance agency Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). 

Founded in 1988, the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) is a global business education accrediting body and offers accreditation to all levels of collegiate business educational degree programs including Bachelor and Master’s programs. ACBSP assesses whether or not business programs offer a rigorous educational experience and commitment to continuous quality improvement.

In order to determine the value of a business program, ACBSP focuses on three major aspects: recognising teaching excellence, determining student learning outcomes, and seeing a continuous improvement model in the program. To accomplish this, they assess the quality of a program´s aspects of leadership, strategic planning, relationships with stakeholders, academic programs, faculty credentials, and educational support. ACBSP’s student-centred teaching and learning approach ensures, through their rigorous assessment, that students gain the right skills from their educational investment.

Any student who graduated after December 12th, 2018, the date of LBS’ entering the ACBSP candidacy, is grandfathered into graduating from an ACBSP accredited study program.
