All MBA seminars held in Austria will take place at Leopoldskron Castle in Salzburg. The castle, with its 4-star hotel, is one of the most beautiful and state-of-the art conference and training centers in the Salzburg area. It was built in the 18th century by the then-archbishop of Salzburg named Leopold Firmian as a summer residence. In 1918, after frequent changes in ownership, the castle was acquired by Max Reinhard, founder of the Salzburg Festival, who lived there until 1938. Since 1959 Leopoldskron Castle has been owned by "Salzburg Global Seminar".
