Vaduz - The University of Liechtenstein continued its positive development in the previous year. Following the completion of a transformation process and a change of leadership, the university is keen to focus more on teaching, continuing education and research again.

The University of Liechtenstein successfully completed its transformation process last year and is now divided into three subject-related and two teaching-related schools, further details of which can be found in a press release issued by the university on the subject of its Annual Report 2023. The previous year also saw a change in leadership at the university, with Lothar Ritter taking over from Klaus Tschütscher as President of the University Council, while Christian Frommelt also succeeded Markus Jäger as Rector of the University of Liechtenstein. In future, the university is keen once again to focus more on its achievements and impact. According to the press release, the priorities here will be on consecutive teaching, continuing education and research.

In the press release, the university highlights the recognition of two of its schools by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation organization as a particular success in the previous year. In specific terms, the Liechtenstein Business School and the Liechtenstein Business Law School received AACSB accreditation. Following the accreditation of the Liechtenstein School of Architecture by the Royal Institute of British Architects a few years ago, all three of the university’s specialist schools now boast “internationally recognized proof of quality”, as the university writes in the press release.

In the reporting year, in terms of consecutive teaching, a total of 214 people began their studies at the University of Liechtenstein. At the same time, 175 students successfully completed their studies. When it comes to continuing education, 196 students were enrolled in four Master’s degree programs, one diploma program and seven certificate programs. ce/hs
