Overview of our focus areas


Busy, busy, business.

Graduates of IMC Krems business degree programmes have what it takes to deal with the challenges of the global economy.

Flexibility and a willingness to adapt constantly – these are two essential criteria for educational institutions responsible for preparing young people to enter the current and future world of business. In Krems, our unique mindset means that these requirements underlie everything we do – an international outlook is a guiding principle in all of our degree programmes. This includes courses taught in German.

Digitalisation & engineering

The age of digital heroes has arrived

There’s a strong emphasis on data in our digitalisation and engineering programmes. The objective is to make sense of masses of unstructured data. Study with us today and learn how to shape the world of tomorrow.

Just to be clear: we don’t train engineers or technicians as such. What we do is prepare our students to play the role of a “translator” who can act as an interface between different professional groups and work confidently with large amounts of data. You also learn how to effectively exploit the latest technological tools to gain new insights and uncover relationships which have previously gone unnoticed so you can head in innovative new directions – with direct benefits for your company or business.


Just like the World Health Organization, we believe in “Health for all”.

This means creating conditions in which as many people as possible are able to lead healthy lives.

Our university recognised the potential of the health sector a long time ago. We have over a decade’s experience in training health specialists. Today, IMC Krems offers a comprehensive range of bachelor programmes – and is playing a pioneering role in the health sector by developing academic master programmes.

Life sciences

It all started with a bang

The universe began with the Big Bang. And international careers begin with a degree from IMC Krems. A strong international focus and an emphasis on practical training are the hallmarks of the education we provide.

We prepare our students for their future careers. We know they will face a variety of challenges, and improving the quality of life of patients worldwide is top of the list. Demand for highly trained employees is increasing, both in the pharmaceuticals sector and among research institutes.
