Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    The programme is taught entirely in English and includes the acquisition of further competencies in the "wine languages" French, Italian and Spanish, as well as viticultural and oenological vocabulary. In addition, it includes a compulsory work placement of at least 22 weeks and also allows for a semester abroad at one of over 110 partner universities – around 30% of students use this option. There are international lecturers and students; the course contents are focused on international issues.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    International Wine Business is networked well with all international universities that offer the programmes in the wine business and in upstream and downstream fields (for example, viticulture and oenology and wine marketing). Fifty per cent of our lecturers do not hail from Austria (native speakers from England, Australia, Scotland and the USA, etc.). In addition, we host international congresses, symposia and conferences. The next one is the "Culinary and Wine Tourism Conference".
  • Common partner universities for exchange
    Linnaeus University (Kalmar,SWE); Sun Yatsen School of Business (Guangzhou;PR China); Wilfried Laurier University (Waterloo, CAN); Udayana University (Denpasar;Indonesia); Metropolia University of Applied Sciences (Helsinki); NEOMA (Rouen); Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (Madrid); Universidad de Menterrey (MEX); IBMEC Rio de Janeiro; Griffith University (Gold Coast, AUS).
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    As for technical equipment, we benefit from the close cooperation and excellent equipment of our two key partners: the Federal Office for Wine and Horticulture in Klosterneuburg and the Wine School / Competence Centres for Viticulture in Krems. They have all the necessary technical facilities: state-of-the-art cellars, equipment for microvinification, sensory cabins and/or studio, laboratories, etc.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Last year we were able to successfully complete a project for the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economics, which we had won and brought to Krems thanks to the most convincing concept. The entire course of study is online and can be found using the search term "Kostbares Österreich" (Precious Austria). In 2016 we were awarded an Erasmus+ call (Life Long Learning programme) together with our Italian, Hungarian and Greek colleagues. Total funding of approximately EUR 950,000.
  • Website with further information on research activities
  • Support for founders
    The field of company start-ups is promoted through curricular courses (such as Business Plan Development as an "interdisciplinary and cross-semester task" in Marketing, Market Research and Finance and Investment). There is also the extra-curricular FoundersLab, which supports business ideas, business models and company development. As support and inspiration, Start-up Service (Accent) and graduates with business-founding experience are invited to talk to students about support and assistance options, as well as their own experiences.
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    This is taken into account in accordance with the study and examination regulations (Section 7 of the statutes) of the teaching staff at IMC FH Krems.
  • Characteristics of diversity advancement
    The "Charta der Vielfalt" (Diversity Charter) was signed in 2013; integration in the philosophy of IMC Fachhochschule Krems.
  • Other special features
    Our students, virtually unlike any other course, stand out through their intrinsic motivation. Cohesion, team spirit and networking, coming from the common passion for wine, are on full display here. Wine tours are planned and carried out jointly. Numerous fairs, tastings, workshops and wineries are visited by "International Wine Business" students in their free time and on a voluntary basis.
