Mathias Corvinus Collegium (MCC) has acquired ownership of the Modul University in Vienna. Continuing its international network expansion, MCC will now provide access to Hungarian students from the entire Carpathian Basin access to further unique educational and learning opportunities. In addition, the talent nurturing institution will also participate in serious international research projects through Modul.
Modul Universität Wien is Austria’s leading private university. The continuously developing institution in Vienna has been yielding impressive results over the past 15 years. Established as a private university focusing on tourism, Modul Universität Wien’s academic programmes have been steadily expanding over the years. It is now an internationally recognized private university with programmes available at undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels. While in 2007, they offered three programmes to 80 students, today, 1100 students are studying in 11 different programmes including international management, sustainable development, applied data science, tourism, and service management at the university’s Vienna and Nanjing campuses.
Modul Universität Wien offers high-level practical training and conducts extremely serious research programmes at the university, in which MCC and its instructors and researchers are now getting involved. According to U-Multirank’s 2020 edition, which applies a multi-dimensional, user-oriented approach to international university rankings,
Modul Universität Wien is among the world’s 25 most referenced universities.
The university fits perfectly into MCC’s profile, as the institution is based on small-group, mentor-based, internationally recognised education, with a serious research background and personalised talent management. Teachers at the university come from over forty different countries, and the language of instruction is English.
Last fall, MCC opened a location in Brussels where students can directly learn about the functioning of the European Union. A few weeks ago, MCC also partnered with the ESMT Berlin university, allowing more than 20 students per year to study with scholarships at Germany’s highest-ranking business school. An agreement was also reached with The Roger Scruton Legacy Foundation, enabling MCC students to study at the best universities in Great Britain. This recent acquisition is part of the international networking effort. The expansion is supported by renowned university professors from institutions such as the University of Notre Dame, Columbia University, and the London School of Economics. As a result, the research and teaching profiles of MCC and Modul Universität Wien can be significantly strengthened.
The collaboration greatly promotes the education and development of MCC and its Hungarian students from the Carpathian Basin. It contributes to the achieving of MCC’s ultimate goal: to create a university and academic environment where the key players of the scientific, economic, and public life meet and share their views and experiences, thus encouraging further dialogue.
