Spend the Summer in the Alps of Innsbruck!
Established in 1995, MCI is among Austria's leading institutions of higher education. In the MCI summer program, undergraduate courses with a focus on international business are offered. In addition, summer program students can sign up for an activity package and participate in the course "Vienna Around 1900" which includes a two-day trip to Vienna.
The Tyrolean Mountains within grasp, the region’s unbeatable sports and leisure facilities, the proximity to Germany, Switzerland and Italy and Innsbruck’s long-standing academic tradition all guarantee a unique ambience for students.
- Summer 2019: May 27 to June 21
MCI assists participants to find housing in Innsbruck for the duration of the summer program, usually in a student dorm. Students subsequently book their rooms and pay their rent to the dorm directly.
Housing costs will not be billed through Appalachian State due to the varied options. Students will submit their housing payment directly to the MCI housing option they select.
For more information about housing please visit MCI’s accommodation web page.
