The goal of officer training
In the course of three years, the necessary leadership competencies of our professional officers are developed using the Theresan Leadership Model.
The Theresan Leadership Model guarantees the successful military management of our graduates through the targeted promotion of mental and physical strength as well as intercultural competence.
Military leadership is achieved with a high degree of practical relevance and practice, taking into account scientific disciplines such as law, political science and economics as well as philosophy, sociology, pedagogy and psychology.
The target group
The officers' training is specifically aimed at:
- Possession of Austrian citizenship
- Commencement of training in the year of completion of the 37th year of age
- Proof of the GCEA-levels, university entrance qualification or the appropriate study authorization examination.
The practical reference
The practical relevance is ensured by close cooperation with Austrian and foreign departments of the Austrian Armed Forces, national and European high and technical colleges as well as lecturers with experience from current assignments. This ensures that we act at the heart of the needs of the consumer and that our professional career applicants are optimally prepared to carry out management tasks.
The study is offered exclusively as a fulltime study. It concludes with a Bachelor diploma and entitles to a further Master's degree at a University of applied Sciences. Up to 60 study places can be awarded each year. The number of supported study places, which are made available to the professional officers of the Austrian Federal Armed Forces, is determined annually by the Ministry of Defence of Austria.
