Our lecturers are business experts from e.g. well-known Austrian enterprises, which makes the study programme very practice-oriented.

In addition, there is a pleasant work atmosphere at the FH, since people work with each other and not against each other. There is always someone to ask who will support and help you with problems. I for one have succeeded in getting a foot in the HR door.
