Austria’s Federal Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, about the importance of political training in collaboration with the University of St.Gallen

For the first time the Executive School is exclusively training serving politicians from the Lower Austrian People’s Party (Volkspartei), who are actively engaged in shaping (Lower) Austrian politics at legislative and executive levels.

The Executive School has concluded a collaborative partnership with the Alois Mock Institute, a Lower Austrian forum for questions of the future, and the Political Academy, the party-political academy of the Austrian People’s Party, with the aim of educating and training the party members of the New Austrian People’s Party at the highest level for the political challenges they will face.

For this purpose the Executive School has designed an executive course specifically for the members of the Peoples’ Party. The national head of the New Austrian People’s party and current Federal Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, recognises the importance of this political training and the associated inspiration for new ideas and food for thought to further advance his political movement, and actively encourages members to take part in it.

In his video address he underlines the collaboration with the University of St.Gallen as a recognised educational institution and praises the willingness of his party members to look outside the box with the aid of the Executive course and expand their intellectual horizons.

The New Austrian People’s Party uses its own party academy to promote and support the professional education and training of its party members, in order to develop new ideas and visions for Austria. The Executive School is now an integral component of that, taking responsibility in the context of its teaching and research activity.
