New Cross-boarder Professional MBA Automotive Industry started sucessfully: Three NÖ-Participants received sponsorships

The Automotive Cluster Vienna Region, (ACVR), initiated a new cross-border MBA program: Professional MBA Automotive Industry, which started successfully on March 5, 2009. Land NÖ (Lower Austria) offered three sponsorships to show the importance of the education and continuing education in an economically challenging area.

The focus of the Professional MBA Automotive Industry is the creation and management of the entrepreneurial processes in automotive and component supply industries. This is a reaction to fulfill the industries internal needs on the qualified professionals and managers in the region around Vienna and Bratislava. This new cross-border MBA program is initiated by the Automotive Cluster Vienna Region, (ACVR). The implementation and realization of the program will be done in cooperation with Vienna University of Technology and Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. This part-time program is presented in modules and takes four semesters. Admission will be granted to persons holding an internationally recognized degree, at least two years of relevant work experience, and a good knowledge of English.

The interest to this unique MBA program in Europe was enormous. 23 participants from 8 countries were admitted to the program. Three of them come from Niederösterreich (Lower Austria). For the member of the lower Austrian provincial government for Economic Affairs, Dr. Petra Bohuslav it is not sufficient to express the importance of such high quality part time education program. In the time of economic crisis it is important to invest to the future oriented education and continuing education in order to be excellent prepared and also to assert her-/himself on the future market. 

In order to set an example three "Land NÖ" sponsorships were provided. In the framework of the extensive selection procedure the sponsorships are awarded following winners:

  • Gerhard Kolarik, Director Sales, EGSTON Automotive Eggenburg GmbH
  • Christian Kropf, General Manager, Pollmann Austria GmbH
  • Christoph Pöstinger, Assistant to the President Europe, Magna, Exterior & Interior Systems
