For the fifth 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 great number of outstanding applications and on May 17, 2013 three of the shortlisted candidates followed the invitation to the hearing.

The jury consisted of Univ.Prof. Dr. Sabine T. Köszegi (Academic Director, TU Wien), Dipl.-Ing. Bernhard Schleidt, MBA (alumnus of the Professional MBA Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Class 2010-2012) und Mag. Petra Aigner (Managing Director, Continuing Education Center). 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 15,000 each were awarded to Dr. Richard Fitz and Mag. (FH) Annelies Smoliner.

Dr. Richard Fitz is a senior scientist in the research and development of microbiology and genetics at Baxter BioScience, a leading company in the field of therapeutic proteins as well in the successful prevention of tick borne early summer meningoencephalitis for thirty years.   
Mag. FH Annelies Smoliner is a graduate of the IMC University for Applied Sciences Krems with a degree in Tourism Management and Leisure Industry. Currently she is a product manager at OEBB Personenverkehr AG and responsible for product design and marketing of the VORTEILScard and ÖSTERREICHcard, two strong selling and well-known products.

Both scholarship holders look forward to acquiring know-how focused on entrepreneurship and innovation and to exchanging ideas with other international participants.
