For the fourth time the Austrian daily newspaper KURIER awarded scholarships for the Professional MBA Entrepreneurship & Innovation in cooperation with the Continuing Education Center of the TU Wien and the WU Executive Academy. The Program Management received a lot of outstanding applications and on May 7, 2012 the five best qualified candidates were invited to a hearing.

The jury consisted of Univ.Prof. Dr. Sabine T. Köszegi (Academic Director, TU Wien), Mag. Nicole Thurn (Journalist, Career Department, KURIER) and Ramtin Ghasemipour-Yazdi, MBA, BSc (CEO Digispectrum Media Technology & Services GmbH and alumnus of the Professional MBA Entrepreneurship & Innovation). Due to the convincing presentations of all candidates it was very difficult for the jury to come to a decision. Finally the KURIER partial scholarships in the amount of EUR 14,000 each were awarded to Dr. Robert Borny and Dipl.-Ing. Klemens Kaar.

After graduating from an engineering college, Dr. Robert Borny studied Human Medicine and is currently a project manager of a nanotechnology research program at the Medical University Vienna.
