Students attend a structured program at one of our partner schools that include lectures, company or site visits and cultural activities ranging from 10 days to 3 weeks depending on the program. From Fashion Industry Management to Innovation Boot Camps, there is something for the most diverse of interests. A program fee is required to cover some of the costs. Students can receive the equivalent of 3-6 Schulich credits.

Frances Pahati, MBA - Vienna Innovation Program

“My short program exchange stretched my ability to think creatively in a business context while learning from incredible professors and other bright minds from around the world. While academically intensive, the program gave me the opportunity to learn more about the Austrian culture and its traditions. Overall, the Vienna Innovation Program was a phenomenal experience and one of the highlights of my MBA!”
