MCI Management Center Innsbruck: MCI Executive PHD Program Starts for the Fourth Time
INNSBRUCK, Austria, May 7, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Cooperation between the MCI, the University of Antwerp and the Antwerp 
Management School | Despite COVID unrestricted progress of program guaranteed | 
Applications are open, start of studies November 2020

The four-year Executive PhD Program with participants from all over the world 
is tailored to experienced, international executives and managers who wish to 
apply the latest research findings and academic expertise to complex economic 
issues, often associated with their professional activities. The 
internationally recognized doctoral program is jointly run by the University of 
Antwerp, Antwerp Management School and MCI. In Austria, the program is 
certified by AQ Austria.

The next cohort of students is scheduled to start in November 2020 and the 
COVID-19 pandemic will not compromise the quality of the program. Markus 
Kittler, Academic Program Director at MCI, explains: "When we noticed early 
that international travel restrictions would remain in place for considerable 
time, we converted the on campus modules into hybrid and online modules. This 
ensures that the participants can complete the PhD program as planned without 
any ramifications for the duration or quality of the program."

The modules this autumn will therefore take place online. The MCI can draw on 
several years of expertise in the field of online learning. "We already started 
to convert our MBA programs to blended learning with mobile and online formats 
several years ago. This expertise now helps us to further develop the Executive 
PhD program in a highly professional manner with regard to the new requirements 
and to provide students with optimal support," adds Susanne E. Herzog, Head of 
the Executive Education Department at MCI. The on-campus formats will return 
once the health risks are manageable and travel restrictions are lifted.
