The Institute of International Management and Entrepreneurship is part of the Department of Management at FH JOANNEUM. The “Triple I” approach – International, Innovation, Industries – is vital for the success of the Department. Research-led teaching (Innovation) and the pooled expertise of four institutes are combined with a comprehensive management concept: tapping potentials in the management of organisations across all sectors (Industries).

The Institute has key expertise in International Business Strategies and Processes. Activities in this context include projects on topics such as internationalisation, market entries and international entrepreneurship with a special focus on small and medium-sized enterprises.

Another field of expertise is Quality-Oriented Higher Education Development in an International Context, where the research team focuses on the topics of employability and quality in tertiary education. The focus is on analysing what skills and competences are needed by employers in an international comparison and how the universities can provide their students with these crucial skills.
