JKU Business School.

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 digitization and internationalization.

The JKU Business School is a regionally anchored academic hub with an international focus. Entrepreneurial thinking is not only embedded in education, but also conveyed in our expertise to beneficially apply key topics of our times, such as digitization and sustainability.

The Business School offers broad-based education, bringing students closer to real companies and business while also providing connections between different subject areas.

With subject areas ranging from Organization Science and Tax Management to Software Engineering, the JKU Business School covers diverse areas of Business Administration and Business Informatics.

Attentive, supervisory relationships with top researchers along with interdisciplinary learning and research give our students the ability to think outside of the box and in a networked way.
