Program Location

viennaVienna is one of the most livable and safest cities in the world. It has a vibrant cultural life as well as many open spaces and an excellent infrastructure. These factors make Vienna an ideal university town.

Also outside the lecture rooms, there is a wealth of things to do. The new Campus WU opened at winter semester 2013/14. With around 100,000 m2 of floor space, the project was one of the largest university building sites in the EU. The 90,000 m2 lot is located next to Prater Park, one of Vienna's most popular recreational areas. Located between two subway stations, the new campus is conveniently accessible by public transportation. The new location is a university campus that offers both students and faculty ideal conditions for teaching and research. Based on the Bologna program's three-tiered degree program structure, the new campus offers separate administrative and support structures for undergraduates and graduates. The Library & Learning Center is a modern service center, housed in a building open to students, teachers, and researchers.

The realization of a new WU campus represents an important step in the university's development, and a further milestone toward reaching its goal of further improving its top position among European business schools.

Program Reviews:
James Walton Stradley, Fall 2018 Participant
The connections that you will make from this program are worth it alone. In addition you will learn a lot about how the world operates in a business setting.

Fall 2016 Participant
I cooked almost everything I ate. If you don't want to spend all your money, I would advise you to do the same.

Spring 2018 Participant
Really ask your buddy if he/she can help you get into good classes with good teachers. I found out too late that they had a ratemyprofessor-like website but it's in German so you need to find help. This is paramount to enjoying your classes.

I now know that I would like to work abroad.
