The Atlantis Project ( seeks to improve the relationships for cooperation in research and teaching as well as enhance the mutual understanding between the U.S. and the EU. The project was created as a response to the need for transatlantic, multidisciplinary cooperation in the field of ICT by the University of Nebraska at Omaha, the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire, MCI Management Center Innsbruck and Technische Universität Braunschweig.

The funding is supplied jointly by the U.S. Department of Education's Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) and the European Commission's Directorate General for Education and Culture (DGEAC). Over the course of the four years 48 students and 18 academic staff from the partner universities will participate in the programme.


Project is still in application stage and the decisions will be published in late summer 2011!

Global IT. The program aims at creating a multi-national program between the Universities of Nebraska, Innsbruck and Jyväskylä in the field of Global Information Technologies – the program aims at combining competences from the business, information system and technology domains in a multinational environment. We combine courses and competences of the participating universities to educate future experts on information technology in a global context. The contents and courses will be accompanied by mobility activities between the participating locations and by continuous collaborative, cross-cultural work which creates experiences and competences for future professionals in global work settings.

It is a double degree program with MCI (Management Center Innsbruck, Austria) and UNO (The University of Nebraska at Omaha, USA). The programme takes two years. JY students will study the first year until May in Jyväskylä and afterwards 2 months in MCI. On second year they will study in UNO. Studies of this study path will follow Motebu requirements. 

JY quota is 2 students per year. Those 2 will be added to MoTeBu quota. Students will get two Master’s degrees; one from JY and one from UNO (by UNO requirements). Students will sign a contract before starting the program. More information will be available in late summer 2011.
