By the Provincial Law,  when the  legal status of the Bruckner Conservatorium  changed to  Private University, LGBl. Nr. 14/2003, the Buckner  Conservatorium was separated from the provincial  administration and established as a separate legal entity in the form of a public body. Since 2004 the  Anton Bruckner Private University   has been accredited as a private university, according to the provisions of the University Accreditation Act  and Private University Act.

The management of the Anton Bruckner Private University  is based on the following three levels:

  • The President (as monocratic body), and the Presidium (as collegial body), are responsible for the management of the University. 
  • The Senate is responsible for academic matters.
  • The University Council has the function of a controlling body.
