Director Executive PhD),Prof. Dr. Siegfried Walch (Head of Department and Studies), Dr Susanne Lichtmannegger (Head of International Relations)and Prof. Dr. Wei Manske-Wang to join the meeting.
Both parties show strong desires and reach an agreement to sign Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)for cooperation in the nearly future. Due to the limitations caused by the COVID-19, both partners will try to organize a signing ceremony online in the near future.
The cooperation mode varies in different aspects initially with a focus on Business School, extending to a whole range of other colleges such as College of Big Data and Internet, Sino-German College of Intelligent Manufacturing, College of Health Science and Environmental Engineering, etc. The preliminary cooperation will focus on the Executive PhD Program along with a range of exchange/summer school collaboration among professors and students.
The successful holding of this Cooperation Meeting has laid a good foundation for SZTU and Management Center Innsbruck (MCI).
