EDITORIAL
PREAMBLE
As the business school of Salzburg University,
SMBS is familiar with the conception and imple-
mentation of university courses and manage-
ment programs.
With regard to this, SMBS works with Salzburg
University as well as no fewer than 70 further
national and international universities and
scientific institutions. With its high quality range
of educational services, SMBS positions itself
at the peak of the European under- and post-
graduate education market. Over 2000 ma-
nagers from German-speaking countries and
beyond have successfully graduated from the
SMBS master programs.
Therefore I am particularly pleased to have
found a further partner in the University of
the Sunshine Coast in Australia, permitting a
unique part-time doctoral program, co-located
in Salzburg.
The aim of the doctoral studies is the advanced
research education of highly qualified candida-
tes, who will gain comprehensive competencies
for conducting independent and application-ori-
ented research in business administration.
The doctoral candidates will learn how to gain
and test new business administration insights
as well as how to organise and publish rese-
arch. Graduates are familiar with the research
methodology, the most important scientific the-
ories and concepts as well as modern research
methods in business administration. They are
capable of independently and critically analy-
sing important research tasks, to present and
master them.
The doctoral program focuses on „International
Business Management“ and is also suitable for
professionals, especially in senior and top level
positions in international companies as well as
private and public organisations.
Empirical research in continental Europe / the
German-speaking countries indicates that a
doctorate has a significant positive effect on
professionals’ careers. Furthermore, academic
careers in research and teaching are available
to graduates of the doctoral program.

DOCTORAL PROGRAM
3. DOCTORAL PROGRAM
3.1. STRUCTURE OF THE DOCTORAL STUDIES
Duration: Basically 3 - 4 years minimum; for candidates with sufficient research competence (demonstrated e.g. by a very
good master thesis, publications, or extensive experience in the application of theoretical knowledge) may be reduced to 3 ye-
ars (corresponds to ca. 180 – 240 ECTS). The doctoral studies offer the flexibility of a full-time and / or part-time mode. Studies
usually begin in the winter semester (October). Exceptions are possible.
The first and second year of studies generally take place in Salzburg. The third year of studies is conducted in a blended le-
arning format at USC. There is a seminar and doctoral workshop lasting approx. 4 weeks with required on-site participation.
Candidates are usually provided with dual supervision by an SMBS faculty member and a USC professor.
The doctoral program, examinations and the doctoral thesis are conducted in English.
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS:
Academic master‘s degree, preferably MBA or equivalent / a master‘s degree or diploma (pre-Bologna structure) from officially
recognised Austrian or German higher education institutions (university or university of applied sciences) or equivalent gradu-
ation from officially recognised / accredited higher education institutes in other countries.
Admission and enrolment in the doctoral program is decided jointly by the academic directorate at USC and SMBS (without
legal recourse for applicants).

TERMS AND CONDITIONS
9. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
For the attendance of study programmes and events of the SMBS
(Version: January 2017)
All legal transactions between the Salzburg Management GmbH – University of Salzburg Business School, Sig-
mund-Haffner-Gasse 18, 5020 Salzburg (referred to in the following as SMBS) and its contractual partners are
subject to the General Terms and Conditions of Business of the SMBS in the respective valid version. With regard
to the individual study programmes and other events, the rights and obligations of the parties to the contract are
defined in greater detail by the content of possible programme or event information or other communications of the
SMBS. Furthermore, the statutes of the University of Salzburg apply.
I. REGISTRATIONS, ACCEPTANCE PROCESS AND CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT
The application (registration), respectively binding for the full course of study, is to be made in writing using the ap-
plication form provided by the SMBS and where designated checked in accordance with the admission regulations
of the respective further training programme (e.g. a concluded Austrian or equivalent degree, evidence of good
foreign language skills, successful completion of an application interview). Registration counts as binding when
submitted with a signature Unless mentioned otherwise in the programme information, registrations are considered
in the order in which they are received. Doctoral and master‘s study programmes and other university courses
feature a limited number of study places. The SMBS (or the respective course administration) has, according to its
conditions of study, the task and obligation of checking the personal and specialist suitability of the applicants, as
well as their fulfilment of the formal requirements for admission.
In so doing, however, liability of the SMBS is excluded in any case relative to the applicant and those third parties
on whose behalf and/or at whose cost the applicant attends the course in the event that unsuitability is not recogni-
sed by the SMBS during the checking process, with the exception of a case of gross negligence. In particular, the
SMBS is not obliged to the applicant or named third parties to check the truth of any statements made during the
application or of documents with which it is presented.
The SMBS (or course administration) retains the right to make a selection corresponding to the qualification of
applicants in the event that the number of registrations exceeds the available participant places, or the didactically
appropriate balance of participants makes this necessary.
After the registration deadline has expired and the admission criteria have been positively checked, the applicant
is accepted by means of a written “pledge of a study place” on the part of the SMBS. In justified exceptional cases,
a pledge of this nature can be offered early (at least 6 months before the beginning of the course) and before the
registration deadline has expired. If a pledge of a study place of this nature is offered early, separate cancellation
conditions apply (see Point III.1. and 2.).
The participant grants his/her consent to the electronic processing of the data of the participant with the registration.
When a study place is granted, moreover, the participant declares his/her consent to the communication of his/her
name, telephone and e-mail data to the administration of the course and, for the facilitation of internal communica-
tion, to fellow students, lecturers, persons entrusted with the organisation of the educational operation, cooperation
partners of the SMBS contributing to the course booked by the participant, the FIBAA as an accreditation agency
and the graduate organisation “SMBS Alumni”. In principle, all personal details of the participants are to be handled
in strict confidence and not to be passed on to third parties (with the exception of those named above). Our Data
Protection Register number is 21092603.
II. TOTAL FEES AND SERVICES
Registration applies for the full course and is binding. When the applicant is notified of their acceptance, a pro-
cessing fee of € 150.00 for doctoral and master’s courses or of € 75.00 for other university courses becomes due
for payment, and is charged to the participation payment (= total fee). The total fee is to be paid within 14 days of
23
the billing date and without any deductions. Study fees, examination fees and additional costs do not include value
added tax, as the SMBS, as an adult education institution, is exempt from value added tax in accordance with § 6,
Clause 1, Paragraph 11, Letter a of the Value Added Tax Law 1994. If a discount is granted – this is only possible
from the course fee, excluding examination fee or additional costs – this is mentioned in the respective registration
forms. Non-attendance of individual course lessons or parts of events in no way entitles the participant to a dis-
count on the billing total.
MBA and MASTER study programs: if the agreed study period (MBA 4 semesters/MASTER 3 and 4 semesters) has
expired, but not all items specified in the study plan (incl. master thesis and final presentation) have been success-
fully completed, SMBS charges and administrative fee of € 490.00 for each additional semester.
Further study programs: if the agreed (2 semester) study period has expired, but not all items specified in the study
plan (incl. project work and final presentation) have been successfully completed, SMBS charges and administra-
tive fee of € 245.00 for each additional semester.
Study documents are included in the total fee to the customary extent. Study documents are made available to the
participants in electronic form. If the SMBS makes documents available in printed form, the participant is to bear
the resulting costs. A supporting programme and break time drinks represent a voluntary additional service of the
SMBS. The payment does not include the costs of travel, board and lodging of the participant, or any of their other
disbursements.
Where possible, information is to be communicated between the SMBS, course instructors and participants via
e-mail. The participant declares that he/she is prepared to manage an e-mail account for the duration of the study
programme for the sending of information, documents, etc., and to retrieve the e-mails on a regular basis. The
SMBS is not liable for damages or expenses incurred by the participant as a result of this information not being
retrieved. In the event that it is not possible for the participant to manage an account of this nature, he/she is res-
ponsible for procuring this information by other means.
III. CANCELLATION CONDITIONS
III.1. Doctoral and MBA Study Programmes
It is only possible to withdraw from a registration (cancellation) in writing. Participants can withdraw until 8 weeks
prior to the beginning of the MBA study programme without paying the full fee, but only the processing fee of €
150.00.
In the event that the participant withdraws (in writing) less than 8 weeks prior to the beginning of the course, 40%
of the course fee is paid as a cancellation fee or credited for a period of one year. In the event that the participant
withdraws after the course has begun, the SMBS retains its claim to the total fee (100%), whether or not the stu-
dent attends the course. The cancellation fee lapses if a replacement participant satisfying the admission criteria
in question – subject to the sequencing and selection authority of the SMBS – takes up this study place and the
payments are rendered in full. Until this time, the participant who has withdrawn from the course is jointly liable for
the full amount with the participant who has taken up the place on the course.
In the case that the contracting party is not an individual person but a company, the company waives the right to
make use of the judicial right of reduction for cancellation fees.
If the fixed pledge of a study place is made early (at least 6 months prior to the course has begun), the following
cancellation deadlines apply in deviation from Clause 1 a participant may withdraw free of charge, other than the
processing fee of € 150.00, within 8 weeks of the study place having been pledged. In the event that the participant
withdraws (in writing) later than 8 weeks after the study place is pledged, 40% of the course fee is paid as a cancel-
lation fee or credited for a period of one year. In the event that the participant withdraws after the course has begun,
the SMBS retains its claim to the total fee (100%), whether or not the student attends the course. The cancellation
fee lapses if a replacement participant satisfying the admission criteria in question – subject to the sequencing and
selection authority of the SMBS – takes up this study place and the payments are rendered in full. Until this time,
the participant who has withdrawn from the course is jointly liable for the full amount with the participant who has
taken up the place on the course.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS
III.2. MASTER Study Programmes and other University Courses
It is only possible to withdraw from a registration (cancellation) in writing. Participants can withdraw until 5 weeks
prior to the study programme is to begin without paying a total fee, apart from the processing fee of € 150.00 or €
75.00.
In the event that the participant withdraws (in writing) less than 5 weeks prior to the beginning of the course, 40%
of the course fee is paid as a cancellation fee or credited for a period of one year. In the event that the participant
withdraws after the course has begun, the SMBS retains its claim to the total fee (100%), whether or not the stu-
dent attends the course. The cancellation fee lapses if a replacement participant satisfying the admission criteria
in question – subject to the sequencing and selection authority of the SMBS – takes up this study place and the
payments are rendered in full. Until this time, the participant who has withdrawn from the course is jointly liable for
the full amount with the participant who has taken up the place on the course.
In the case that the contracting party is not an individual person but a company, the company waives the right to
make use of the judicial right of reduction for cancellation fees.
If the fixed pledge of a study place is made early (at least 6 months prior to the course has begun), the following
cancellation deadlines apply in deviation from Clause 1 a participant may withdraw free of charge, other than the
processing fee of € 150.00 or € 75.00, within 8 weeks of the study place having been pledged. In the event that
the participant withdraws (in writing) later than 8 weeks after the study place is pledged, 40% of the course fee is
paid as a cancellation fee or credited for a period of one year. In the event that the participant withdraws after the
course has begun, the SMBS retains its claim to the total fee (100%), whether or not the student attends the cour-
se. The cancellation fee lapses if a replacement participant satisfying the admission criteria in question – subject
to the sequencing and selection authority of the SMBS – takes up this study place and the payments are rendered
in full. Until this time, the participant who has withdrawn from the course is jointly liable for the full amount with the
participant who has taken up the place on the course.
III.3. Other events
Cancellation of registration is possible for participants until 21 days before the event starts, without a course fee
being due. In case of cancellation until 14 days before the event starts 50% of the course fees is due. In case
of cancellation at a later point, the full course fee is charged, if the reasons for withdrawal lie with the participant.
III.4. General
Cancellations are only effective when made in writing; the date on which the cancellation is received at the SMBS
is decisive for the keeping of the term.
The SMBS reserves the right to cancel a course or seminar, particularly due to the minimum number of participants
not being reached. If such a cancellation is made up to eight days prior to the course/seminar begins, participants
do not accrue any claims for damages or other compensation whatsoever. If a cancellation is made within eight
days prior to the beginning, the SMBS is liable, under exclusion of any other claims, for travel and accommodation
costs verifiably disbursed by participants, although such compensation is excluded in cases of acts of God or of
minor negligence. Participation payments already made are to be refunded by the SMBS without deductions in
such cases. The illness of lecturers counts in all cases as an act of God.
III.5. Distance Selling
If the participant is a consumer in the sense of the Employment Protection Act, and the contract has been conclu-
ded subject to exclusive use of one or more means of distance communication in the sense of § 5a of the Employ-
ment Protection Act, then the participant has the right to withdraw within a deadline of seven working days (Monday
to Friday) from the day of the conclusion of the contract. It is sufficient for the withdrawal to be sent off within the
deadline.
25
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
III.6. Termination
The full course booked represents a fundamentally indivisible unit that is only meaningful when completed in full.
In addition to this, it is necessary for the SMBS to retain the full number of participants for the full duration of the
course in order to guarantee the necessary interactions between the participants, group work, etc. For this reason,
it is not possible in principle to terminate the contract. If the participant is a consumer in the sense of the Employ-
ment Protection Act, however, § 15, Paragraph 2 of the Employment Protection Act states that the consumer can
terminate first subject to observance of a six-month period until the expiry of the second year, and thereafter subject
to observance of the same period until the expiry of each half-year.
IV. CHANGES TO SERVICES
The programme of services of the courses and other events are planned long-term and subject to constant quality
controls. Securing quality demands continuous adjustments. For this reason, the SMBS reserves the right to
continue developing the study schedule and changes regarding event contents, days, sites and dates, as well as
lecturers. Adaptations of this nature and possible short-term changes do not entitle the participant to withdraw from
the contract, to reduce the study fees, or to make compensation claims.
V. EXCLUSION FROM PARTICIPATION
To ensure that the aims of the event are achieved, the SMBS is entitled to exclude course or seminar participants
from further participation with important reason (e.g. absenteeism, malicious disruption of the event or delay in
payment despite warning and the setting of a period of grace of 14 days).
VI. LIABILITY FOR OBJECTS
The SMBS accepts no liability in case of theft, loss or damage to objects brought to the events, in particular objects
of value and motor vehicles. Any misuse of the software or hardware made available within the framework of a
course/seminar relating to the device can lead to compensation claims on the part of the SMBS or third parties.
VII. MISCELLANEOUS
In the event that changes are made to the name, address or billing address of the participant, he/she is obliged to
notify the SMBS of this immediately in writing. If there is no notification of change, communications to the partici-
pant count as having been received if they have been sent to the most recently known address or billing address.
The participants are obliged to cooperate in the gathering of information connected with the accreditation of a study
programme.
VIII. PLACE OF JURISDICTION AND EFFECTIVENESS
These General Terms and Conditions come into effect as of 1. January 2017 and replace the General Terms and
Conditions of Business in their previous version.
The exclusive place of jurisdiction for all legal disputes arising from the contracts concluded between the SMBS
and its contractual partners is Salzburg. Should individual clauses of these conditions become ineffective, the
effectiveness of the remaining conditions remains unaffected. In place of a possible ineffective clause, a clause is
to be inserted which most closely resembles the economic purpose of the original clause as agreed. This contract
is subject to Austrian law.

  • 4. 4 Dr. Gerhard Aumayr Executive Dean SMBS EDITORIAL PREAMBLE As the business school of Salzburg University, SMBS is familiar with the conception and imple- mentation of university courses and manage- ment programs. With regard to this, SMBS works with Salzburg University as well as no fewer than 70 further national and international universities and scientific institutions. With its high quality range of educational services, SMBS positions itself at the peak of the European under- and post- graduate education market. Over 2000 ma- nagers from German-speaking countries and beyond have successfully graduated from the SMBS master programs. Therefore I am particularly pleased to have found a further partner in the University of the Sunshine Coast in Australia, permitting a unique part-time doctoral program, co-located in Salzburg. The aim of the doctoral studies is the advanced research education of highly qualified candida- tes, who will gain comprehensive competencies for conducting independent and application-ori- ented research in business administration. The doctoral candidates will learn how to gain and test new business administration insights as well as how to organise and publish rese- arch. Graduates are familiar with the research methodology, the most important scientific the- ories and concepts as well as modern research methods in business administration. They are capable of independently and critically analy- sing important research tasks, to present and master them. The doctoral program focuses on „International Business Management“ and is also suitable for professionals, especially in senior and top level positions in international companies as well as private and public organisations. Empirical research in continental Europe / the German-speaking countries indicates that a doctorate has a significant positive effect on professionals’ careers. Furthermore, academic careers in research and teaching are available to graduates of the doctoral program. 1. EDITORIAL FROM SMBS MANAGEMENT 2.

There is a seminar and doctoral workshop lasting approx. 4 weeks with required on-site participation. Candidates are usually provided with dual supervision by an SMBS faculty member and a USC professor. The doctoral program, examinations and the doctoral thesis are conducted in English. ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS: Academic master‘s degree, preferably MBA or equivalent / a master‘s degree or diploma (pre-Bologna structure) from officially recognised Austrian or German higher education institutions (university or university of applied sciences) or equivalent gradu- ation from officially recognised / accredited higher education institutes in other countries.

  • 22. 22 TERMS AND CONDITIONS 9. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS For the attendance of study programmes and events of the SMBS (Version: January 2017) All legal transactions between the Salzburg Management GmbH – University of Salzburg Business School, Sig- mund-Haffner-Gasse 18, 5020 Salzburg (referred to in the following as SMBS) and its contractual partners are subject to the General Terms and Conditions of Business of the SMBS in the respective valid version. With regard to the individual study programmes and other events, the rights and obligations of the parties to the contract are defined in greater detail by the content of possible programme or event information or other communications of the SMBS. Furthermore, the statutes of the University of Salzburg apply. I. REGISTRATIONS, ACCEPTANCE PROCESS AND CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT The application (registration), respectively binding for the full course of study, is to be made in writing using the ap- plication form provided by the SMBS and where designated checked in accordance with the admission regulations of the respective further training programme (e.g. a concluded Austrian or equivalent degree, evidence of good foreign language skills, successful completion of an application interview). Registration counts as binding when submitted with a signature Unless mentioned otherwise in the programme information, registrations are considered in the order in which they are received. Doctoral and master‘s study programmes and other university courses feature a limited number of study places. The SMBS (or the respective course administration) has, according to its conditions of study, the task and obligation of checking the personal and specialist suitability of the applicants, as well as their fulfilment of the formal requirements for admission. In so doing, however, liability of the SMBS is excluded in any case relative to the applicant and those third parties on whose behalf and/or at whose cost the applicant attends the course in the event that unsuitability is not recogni- sed by the SMBS during the checking process, with the exception of a case of gross negligence. In particular, the SMBS is not obliged to the applicant or named third parties to check the truth of any statements made during the application or of documents with which it is presented. The SMBS (or course administration) retains the right to make a selection corresponding to the qualification of applicants in the event that the number of registrations exceeds the available participant places, or the didactically appropriate balance of participants makes this necessary. After the registration deadline has expired and the admission criteria have been positively checked, the applicant is accepted by means of a written “pledge of a study place” on the part of the SMBS. In justified exceptional cases, a pledge of this nature can be offered early (at least 6 months before the beginning of the course) and before the registration deadline has expired. If a pledge of a study place of this nature is offered early, separate cancellation conditions apply (see Point III.1. and 2.). The participant grants his/her consent to the electronic processing of the data of the participant with the registration. When a study place is granted, moreover, the participant declares his/her consent to the communication of his/her name, telephone and e-mail data to the administration of the course and, for the facilitation of internal communica- tion, to fellow students, lecturers, persons entrusted with the organisation of the educational operation, cooperation partners of the SMBS contributing to the course booked by the participant, the FIBAA as an accreditation agency and the graduate organisation “SMBS Alumni”. In principle, all personal details of the participants are to be handled in strict confidence and not to be passed on to third parties (with the exception of those named above). Our Data Protection Register number is 21092603. II. TOTAL FEES AND SERVICES Registration applies for the full course and is binding. When the applicant is notified of their acceptance, a pro- cessing fee of € 150.00 for doctoral and master’s courses or of € 75.00 for other university courses becomes due for payment, and is charged to the participation payment (= total fee). The total fee is to be paid within 14 days of
  • 23. 23 the billing date and without any deductions. Study fees, examination fees and additional costs do not include value added tax, as the SMBS, as an adult education institution, is exempt from value added tax in accordance with § 6, Clause 1, Paragraph 11, Letter a of the Value Added Tax Law 1994. If a discount is granted – this is only possible from the course fee, excluding examination fee or additional costs – this is mentioned in the respective registration forms. Non-attendance of individual course lessons or parts of events in no way entitles the participant to a dis- count on the billing total. MBA and MASTER study programs: if the agreed study period (MBA 4 semesters/MASTER 3 and 4 semesters) has expired, but not all items specified in the study plan (incl. master thesis and final presentation) have been success- fully completed, SMBS charges and administrative fee of € 490.00 for each additional semester. Further study programs: if the agreed (2 semester) study period has expired, but not all items specified in the study plan (incl. project work and final presentation) have been successfully completed, SMBS charges and administra- tive fee of € 245.00 for each additional semester. Study documents are included in the total fee to the customary extent. Study documents are made available to the participants in electronic form. If the SMBS makes documents available in printed form, the participant is to bear the resulting costs. A supporting programme and break time drinks represent a voluntary additional service of the SMBS. The payment does not include the costs of travel, board and lodging of the participant, or any of their other disbursements. Where possible, information is to be communicated between the SMBS, course instructors and participants via e-mail. The participant declares that he/she is prepared to manage an e-mail account for the duration of the study programme for the sending of information, documents, etc., and to retrieve the e-mails on a regular basis. The SMBS is not liable for damages or expenses incurred by the participant as a result of this information not being retrieved. In the event that it is not possible for the participant to manage an account of this nature, he/she is res- ponsible for procuring this information by other means. III. CANCELLATION CONDITIONS III.1. Doctoral and MBA Study Programmes It is only possible to withdraw from a registration (cancellation) in writing. Participants can withdraw until 8 weeks prior to the beginning of the MBA study programme without paying the full fee, but only the processing fee of € 150.00. In the event that the participant withdraws (in writing) less than 8 weeks prior to the beginning of the course, 40% of the course fee is paid as a cancellation fee or credited for a period of one year. In the event that the participant withdraws after the course has begun, the SMBS retains its claim to the total fee (100%), whether or not the stu- dent attends the course. The cancellation fee lapses if a replacement participant satisfying the admission criteria in question – subject to the sequencing and selection authority of the SMBS – takes up this study place and the payments are rendered in full. Until this time, the participant who has withdrawn from the course is jointly liable for the full amount with the participant who has taken up the place on the course. In the case that the contracting party is not an individual person but a company, the company waives the right to make use of the judicial right of reduction for cancellation fees. If the fixed pledge of a study place is made early (at least 6 months prior to the course has begun), the following cancellation deadlines apply in deviation from Clause 1 a participant may withdraw free of charge, other than the processing fee of € 150.00, within 8 weeks of the study place having been pledged. In the event that the participant withdraws (in writing) later than 8 weeks after the study place is pledged, 40% of the course fee is paid as a cancel- lation fee or credited for a period of one year. In the event that the participant withdraws after the course has begun, the SMBS retains its claim to the total fee (100%), whether or not the student attends the course. The cancellation fee lapses if a replacement participant satisfying the admission criteria in question – subject to the sequencing and selection authority of the SMBS – takes up this study place and the payments are rendered in full. Until this time, the participant who has withdrawn from the course is jointly liable for the full amount with the participant who has taken up the place on the course. TERMS AND CONDITIONS
  • 24. 24 TERMS AND CONDITIONS III.2. MASTER Study Programmes and other University Courses It is only possible to withdraw from a registration (cancellation) in writing. Participants can withdraw until 5 weeks prior to the study programme is to begin without paying a total fee, apart from the processing fee of € 150.00 or € 75.00. In the event that the participant withdraws (in writing) less than 5 weeks prior to the beginning of the course, 40% of the course fee is paid as a cancellation fee or credited for a period of one year. In the event that the participant withdraws after the course has begun, the SMBS retains its claim to the total fee (100%), whether or not the stu- dent attends the course. The cancellation fee lapses if a replacement participant satisfying the admission criteria in question – subject to the sequencing and selection authority of the SMBS – takes up this study place and the payments are rendered in full. Until this time, the participant who has withdrawn from the course is jointly liable for the full amount with the participant who has taken up the place on the course. In the case that the contracting party is not an individual person but a company, the company waives the right to make use of the judicial right of reduction for cancellation fees. If the fixed pledge of a study place is made early (at least 6 months prior to the course has begun), the following cancellation deadlines apply in deviation from Clause 1 a participant may withdraw free of charge, other than the processing fee of € 150.00 or € 75.00, within 8 weeks of the study place having been pledged. In the event that the participant withdraws (in writing) later than 8 weeks after the study place is pledged, 40% of the course fee is paid as a cancellation fee or credited for a period of one year. In the event that the participant withdraws after the course has begun, the SMBS retains its claim to the total fee (100%), whether or not the student attends the cour- se. The cancellation fee lapses if a replacement participant satisfying the admission criteria in question – subject to the sequencing and selection authority of the SMBS – takes up this study place and the payments are rendered in full. Until this time, the participant who has withdrawn from the course is jointly liable for the full amount with the participant who has taken up the place on the course. III.3. Other events Cancellation of registration is possible for participants until 21 days before the event starts, without a course fee being due. In case of cancellation until 14 days before the event starts 50% of the course fees is due. In case of cancellation at a later point, the full course fee is charged, if the reasons for withdrawal lie with the participant. III.4. General Cancellations are only effective when made in writing; the date on which the cancellation is received at the SMBS is decisive for the keeping of the term. The SMBS reserves the right to cancel a course or seminar, particularly due to the minimum number of participants not being reached. If such a cancellation is made up to eight days prior to the course/seminar begins, participants do not accrue any claims for damages or other compensation whatsoever. If a cancellation is made within eight days prior to the beginning, the SMBS is liable, under exclusion of any other claims, for travel and accommodation costs verifiably disbursed by participants, although such compensation is excluded in cases of acts of God or of minor negligence. Participation payments already made are to be refunded by the SMBS without deductions in such cases. The illness of lecturers counts in all cases as an act of God. III.5. Distance Selling If the participant is a consumer in the sense of the Employment Protection Act, and the contract has been conclu- ded subject to exclusive use of one or more means of distance communication in the sense of § 5a of the Employ- ment Protection Act, then the participant has the right to withdraw within a deadline of seven working days (Monday to Friday) from the day of the conclusion of the contract. It is sufficient for the withdrawal to be sent off within the deadline.
  • 25. 25 TERMS AND CONDITIONS III.6. Termination The full course booked represents a fundamentally indivisible unit that is only meaningful when completed in full. In addition to this, it is necessary for the SMBS to retain the full number of participants for the full duration of the course in order to guarantee the necessary interactions between the participants, group work, etc. For this reason, it is not possible in principle to terminate the contract. If the participant is a consumer in the sense of the Employ- ment Protection Act, however, § 15, Paragraph 2 of the Employment Protection Act states that the consumer can terminate first subject to observance of a six-month period until the expiry of the second year, and thereafter subject to observance of the same period until the expiry of each half-year. IV. CHANGES TO SERVICES The programme of services of the courses and other events are planned long-term and subject to constant quality controls. Securing quality demands continuous adjustments. For this reason, the SMBS reserves the right to continue developing the study schedule and changes regarding event contents, days, sites and dates, as well as lecturers. Adaptations of this nature and possible short-term changes do not entitle the participant to withdraw from the contract, to reduce the study fees, or to make compensation claims. V. EXCLUSION FROM PARTICIPATION To ensure that the aims of the event are achieved, the SMBS is entitled to exclude course or seminar participants from further participation with important reason (e.g. absenteeism, malicious disruption of the event or delay in payment despite warning and the setting of a period of grace of 14 days). VI. LIABILITY FOR OBJECTS The SMBS accepts no liability in case of theft, loss or damage to objects brought to the events, in particular objects of value and motor vehicles. Any misuse of the software or hardware made available within the framework of a course/seminar relating to the device can lead to compensation claims on the part of the SMBS or third parties. VII. MISCELLANEOUS In the event that changes are made to the name, address or billing address of the participant, he/she is obliged to notify the SMBS of this immediately in writing. If there is no notification of change, communications to the partici- pant count as having been received if they have been sent to the most recently known address or billing address. The participants are obliged to cooperate in the gathering of information connected with the accreditation of a study programme. VIII. PLACE OF JURISDICTION AND EFFECTIVENESS These General Terms and Conditions come into effect as of 1. January 2017 and replace the General Terms and Conditions of Business in their previous version. The exclusive place of jurisdiction for all legal disputes arising from the contracts concluded between the SMBS and its contractual partners is Salzburg. Should individual clauses of these conditions become ineffective, the effectiveness of the remaining conditions remains unaffected. In place of a possible ineffective clause, a clause is to be inserted which most closely resembles the economic purpose of the original clause as agreed. This contract is subject to Austrian law.
