CEMS Annual Events 2019


WU is proud to host the 31st CEMS Annual Events from November 27 to December 1, 2019. We are very pleased to have the opportunity to organize the annual CEMS conference with its numerous social events and the graduation ceremony for some 800 CEMS graduates here in Vienna and to welcome you to Campus WU.

A group of four European universities founded CEMS in 1988, with the aim of qualifying students for management positions in multilingual and multinational companies. The CEMS master’s program “International Management” was launched the next year.

Vienna – The city where you really can have it all

Horses’ hooves clattering on cobblestones and whisper-quiet electric-powered city buses. Classical music in the Vienna State Opera and cool beats in the city’s hippest clubs. Historically important buildings and world-class modern architecture. Fast-paced business districts and oases of quiet green in the middle of the city. In Vienna, opposites are there to complement each other and create a harmonious urban living space with something for everyone. Vienna really is the city where you can have it all.

Campus WU – An urban oasis in the heart of the city

WU’s new and innovative campus opened its doors in 2013. Within just a few years, Campus WU has found a place among the city’s most famous landmarks. The campus offers not only fascinating architecture, designed by international star architects (including Zaha Hadid), but also a modern infrastructure that provides ideal conditions for teaching and research. Its cafés, restaurants, quiet, hidden corners, its space for communication and encounters, and its proximity to the expansive recreational Prater Park area makes the campus a place to linger. The inspiring Campus WU is the embodiment of the welcoming spirit prevalent at WU, of the open-mindedness and eagerness to share knowledge that both WU and the city of Vienna are known for.
