Fast Trader or Fair Trader? Regional or International? The answer is AND. New times call for new strategies and new answers to questions arising from digitalization and internationalization.
The JKU Business School thrives in research, education, and real-world business practices through its commitment to the following core values:
Bold and Entrepreneurial
Firmly anchored in the region, the JKU Business School is an academic hub with an international focus. We not only teach our students to be entrepreneurially minded, we also prepare them to face key challenges of our times: Digital transformation and sustainability.
Connected and Impactful
We offer broad academic and scientific education, making students aware of just how different subject areas connect so they can understand businesses in their entirety and have a real impact as future managers and leaders who are able to think outside of the box.
Curious and Research-led
Each of the JKU Business School's three divisions (Finance & Accounting, Management & Marketing, and Supply Chain & Information Management) feature high-profile researchers who work in their respective subject areas at the frontier of a new knowledge generation. This knowledge forms the basis of effective knowledge transfer – both in the classroom as well as in relation to real-world business practices.
Human and Collegial
Our students have the privilege of getting to know attentive, high-profile researchers as part of a relatively small study group and are able to experience a collegial and work-friendly environment that has become a mainstay at the JKU Business School.

Paper Development Workshop - Open for contributions
Moving to a new city is always exciting as from one day to the next you are in a completely different environment. This is also the case for our ACT and TROIKA students at JKU. In order to continue with their studies, they moved to Linz for a couple of months. Therefore, to help them familiarize themselves with their new temporary home, they were invited to a city tour.
The tour started at the old city hall at Hauptplatz where the students got an insight into the city’s beginnings and important historical personalities such as Anton Bruckner and Johannes Kepler. After that, the tour took the students through the historical alleys of the old town of Linz to the castle where they got to see a model of how Linz looked under the emperor and a stunning view of the whole city. The tour continued down and through the alleys again to the last stop, the cathedral of Linz, which is the second highest in Austria, and if you count the cross on top even number one. There, the students got a close look at gothic architecture and the cathedral’s stunning colorful windows. Although the temperature was around 1°C, the tour was the best way to give the students a warm welcome to Linz and for them to get to know about the city’s history.
We wish them a nice experience during their stay in Linz!
