Miba Leadership Academy

Leading Business. Leading People. Leading Expertise.

Miba Leadership Academy has been associated with high quality global training for many years. As of now, however, the term will no longer only convey explicit leadership know-how, but will also focus on our experts. They are crucial for the further development of Miba. It also covers the former Miba Management Academy, now called Business Lab. After Leadership Lab, MLA participants have the chance to complete an MBA program at the Austrian Business School LIMAK.
