The European Travel Commission is partnering with MODUL University Vienna to offer a fully funded scholarship for a two-year part-time MBA program, designed especially for industry professionals wanting to advance their careers, and it is concentrated on strategic analysis and planning, interdisciplinary skills, value-based management, and critical thinking.
All courses are taught in English. The scholarship value is 25,000 Euros and includes tuition fees for the entire duration of the study program and reading material. Courses are offered in bloc seminar format on long weekends starting either on Thursday/Friday or lasting until Monday/Tuesday, every month, which minimizes the need for professionals to take vacation days for participating in the program.

Travel and accommodation costs are not included in the scholarship offer.
The admissions criteria are the following:
