SMBS - Education for Leaders

A part-time, postgraduate training is not only a current requirement of a modern university, but rather a necessity to meet new professional challenges. The University of Salzburg Business School (SMBS) is one of the most international renowned suppliers, regarding sustainable, post-graduate education and training. At the intersection between science and industry, our practice-oriented management programs direct their focus specifically toward the needs of working professionals.

The atmosphere of Salzburg as an intellectual and cultural center in one of the strongest economic force fields within the EU is utilized by SMBS to establish its vision: to offer national and international managers and executives the best programs, the best structures and procedures. Its training programs are conducted in close collaboration with the University of Salzburg and other renowned, local and international universities (e.g. University of Westminster, Georgetown University, Fudan University, Moscow State University).

The Master Programs are at the core of this range of courses, conceived to include on-the-job training and with international orientation. Participants graduate with the highly demanded Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Business Law (MBL), Master in Training and Development (MTD), Master in Management (MIM), and Master of International Business (MIB) academic degrees. Training in all master programs is oriented toward key qualifications in management. It includes sector-specific elements and conveys state-of-the-art know-how.

In addition to the Master programs (approx. 4 semesters duration), we offer target group-specific Short Programs and In-House Programs adjusted to the needs of companies.

Four success factors of SMBS:

  • International cooperation partners throughout the world enable our students abroad modules at renowned universities (e.g. in Moscow, London, Washington, Shanghai or Bangkok).
