Our market entry is secured by our technological leadership, our aim, however, is market leadership. That requires a good interaction of innovation and technological understanding, thinking and acting – just like it is conveyed in the Professional MBA program offered by TU Vienna and WU."

In the knowledge-based society and economy, it becomes the key to a successful economic development.

    "Mobile communication is one of the most dynamic industries worldwide. If we want to be successful, we always need to be one step ahead and constantly develop innovative ideas. Flexible employees are demanded who at the same time are entrepreneurs with their own visions. Therefore, our employees need a certain kind of free space, they have to be prepared to take on responsibility. Readiness to assume risks is also part of it. I am very happy that the Professional MBA Entrepreneurship & Innovation exists. It offers a perfect combination of what is imperatively needed in business nowadays."

    "Innovation is an extremely burning issue. Today, a company’s innovative strength is a decisive competitive factor – especially in the car industry. The Professional MBA program offered by the Vienna University of Technology and the Vienna University of Economics and Business has set itself the goal of meeting this challenge during the training of our future managers."
