IMC Krems' English-language StartUp Management bachelor degree programme* empowers you to effectively plan your professional goals and pursue your innovative ideas. Beyond theoretical knowledge the programme provides practical insights into the central concepts of start-up management – from founding to scaling.

What to expect from the degree programme

6 semesters you will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to establish and successfully lead a start-up through its various stages – from pre-seed to foundation and expansion. In addition to learning business fundamentals, you’ll explore how to promote innovations and protect intellectual property. The course content will be presented through bootcamps, which are immersive short on-site sessions, along with online delivery methods.

The programme focuses on applying course content to practical projects. You will create business ideas on your own and develop them further together with your fellow colleagues. The internship semester at the end of your studies is a stepping stone for your career. If you’ve already developed a brilliant idea during your bachelor degree programme that is taking off, we won’t hold you back. Alternatively, you might complete your internship as an employee of a start-up, providing you with a direct entry opportunity into the workforce after your studies.
