Innovative Teaching Methods

Our study program relies on innovative teaching concepts. Instead of offering classical lectures, we strive to provide a variety of diverse didactic approaches based on experiential leaning.


Excursions are used to visit well-known companies, exciting start-ups, up-and-coming coworking spaces or research institutions and provide practical insights. In addition, courses on suitable topics are also held entirely at external locations in Austria and abroad.

Interactive formats and company projects

Throughout the program students have an opportunity to work on several company projects in different companies. This gives them a chance to use their acquired knowledge in strategy, innovation management, marketing, design and engineering process development to come up with innovative solutions for regional companies (and meet their potential employers in the process).

Online Classes

Some courses are offered using a variety of online tools. You can therefore participate in these courses flexibly, independent of location and partly also independent of time.

Innovation Week

During this five-day design thinking workshop over the spring break students have a chance to work with fellow students from other study programs. With the support of coaches they work on their solutions to innovation challenges of exciting companies.
