Marina Rowe

Global LT, Recruiter EMEA

"Keep it real 🙂 Study hard and make great friends. Don’t shy away from any challenges and try to dream big. Nothing is impossible when you try just a little harder. LBS was a great stepping stone for me and enabled me to achieve great heights in my career later on. I’m humbled to say that it all started in LBS!"

R2G Digital, Founder & CEO

"Lauder Business School is where I learned my business ABC’s and where I laid the first cornerstones of building my professional network. One of the best memories from studying there would have to be the classes with Prof. Christian Mehlich and the mentorship conversations with him outside the classroom."

thumb_01_90_90 Alex Melamed

Microsoft, Marketing Manager

"Lauder Business School Vienna provided me with the practical learning approach, developed using-real life case studies. Those allowed me to look at real business challenges from a CFO / CEO perspective, while being a pragmatic authoritative leader. Also, I had the precious opportunity of being taught by Prof. Joel Stern, which was an absolutely breath-taking experience. One thing I wanted to take away from this program, in addition to the leadership component, was a better understanding of initiating change in today’s uncertain financial markets."
