"I’m always eager to challenge myself."

Sofie had a hard time deciding on a master’s program – there are so many to choose from! With SIMC, she managed to find a program that covers her broad interests and gives her the flexibility to discover new areas as well.

"Vienna is an amazing place to call home!"

Matt is originally from Australia. He decided to come to Vienna to study SIMC because he was convinced that this was the right place for him and his family. He discovers something new every day, including cultural highlights, natural beauty, and the best quiet corners to study in.

The master’s program

SIMC bridges the gap between the qualitative aspects of management (strategy and innovation) and the quantitative aspects (management control and financial management). Strategy implementation is emphasized heavily alongside strategy creation and conceptualization.

After acquiring an in-depth understanding of how companies develop business strategies and translate them into employee action, you will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge in real-life situations, either by choosing a business project in cooperation with one of our corporate partners or by taking a garage course and developing your own start-up idea.

The program’s flexible structure encourages you to broaden your horizons by going on an exchange semester or completing a double degree abroad.
