About

The program is taught entirely in English and has been developed on the basis of the blended learning concept. It combines compulsory online lessons and individual learning assignments with up to eight on-campus sessions per semester. The benefits of this concept are manifold: not only does it enable a large degree of flexibility through online teaching, but it also provides substantial supervision through traditional face-to-face learning.

Built on blended learning, the Corporate Governance and Finance Online Master’s program at the MCI Management Center Innsbruck - the Entrepreneurial School® is characterized not only by flexibility and independence, but also by practical relevance and a strong emphasis on application-oriented thinking. It allows students to combine work and study, while at the same time profiting from the personal interaction with teachers and exchange with other students.

The Master’s program targets individuals who already hold a business-related Bachelor’s degree and currently work towards becoming experts or leaders in their chosen field. Their prime goal should be to gain advanced knowledge of corporate governance and financial management.

While Studying

MCI study programs stand out due to the quality of their content, relevance to the business world, and their international orientation. The close cooperation with partners from  industry and integrative internships enable students to gain practical experience as early as in their Bachelor’s studies. In addition to providing expert knowledge, MCI places great importance on encouraging personal development and the development of social and intercultural competencies.

Learning Goals

In order to ensure the transfer of learning and to enable students to develop relevant competencies, MCI has defined clear cross-curricular learning goals. These describe, in detail, the knowledge and skills acquired by our graduates on completion of their studies at MCI.

After Studying

Graduates of the program are conferred the academic title of Master of Arts in Business, in short MA or M.A. This is attested by a leaving certificate, the Master diploma, the international diploma supplement, and further documents where relevant. We recommend graduates to combine the academic degree with the MCI brand: e.g. MA (MCI). This is to provide trust and orientation in an increasingly non-transparent international education market.
