The Austian Industriemagazin (industry magazine) once again ranked the University for Continuing Education Krems as the top Austrian executive MBA program (EMBA) in 2021. 300 HR decision-makers in Austrian companies were surveyed for the study, which proved Danube Business School (DBS) to have the highest level of recognition.

The Department for Management and Economics at the University for Continuing Education Krems, the Danube Business School, was confirmed in first place in the annual MBA provider ranking for Austria - for the eighth time in a row.

Compared to the last study, Danube Business School increased its recommendation rate from 32 to 34%, despite the challenging circumstances the pandemic brought. In the category of recognition, the University for Continuing Education Krems remains unrivaled: "Which MBA providers come to your mind?" 35.5% of the respondents answered this question with naming Danube Business School, and with a list of providers at hand, the figure raised to 89.5% - both figures mark the highest values in the study. The University for Continuing Education Krems directs its "Executive MBA" program at people in management with professional and leadership experience who want to further their role as a manager instead of being satisfied with economic know-how alone.
