Institution Funding



Management Center Innsbruck (MCI) was founded in 1995 and is a fully autonomous academic institution in the larger University of Innsbruck framework. The initiative for the inception of MCI emerged at the beginning of the 1990s in the course of strategic developments of the School of Social Sciences of the University of Innsbruck, a research-oriented, comprehensive public university.
The aim of the newly established MCI was to strengthen the ties between academia and business, create an entrepreneurial drive for new activities and provide a flexible structure for academic innovation, complementing the portfolio of Innsbruck University. Based on this aim, MCI started off with part-time study programs for working professionals in the region as well as non-degree courses, seminars and corporate trainings. Founding institutions were the Federal State of Tyrol, the City of Innsbruck, the Tyrolean Chamber of Commerce, the Tyrolean Chamber of Labor, the Tyrolean Industrialists’ Association and the University of Innsbruck.
In accordance with the founders’ mandate, MCI has always been driven by academic competence, practice-orientation, entrepreneurial dynamics, flexibility, innovative strength, international orientation, service-orientation and strong links to the University of Innsbruck.
