Welcome to the Institute for English Business Communication!

We are part of the Department of Business Communication.

This website provides information about the Institute, its staff, and how to study Business English at the Vienna University of Economics and Business.

Status update

Dear all,

In the face of hours of language teaching being cut from the curriculum, we strive to continue to do the best we can to provide excellent education as well as all other relevant services under increasingly challenging circumstances. For any specific requests or inquiries, please contact bizcomm@wu.ac.at.

Please note that we will offer a limited number of EBC courses as part of "Sommeruni" in September to help manage the flow of BaWiSo19 students and allow them to graduate as much on time as possible. Details will be published in good time, but we will do whatever we can to give priority to those students most advanced in their studies.

As always, please make sure to keep following any guidelines that may be issued by WU to create a pleasant and safe work and study environment for students and faculty members alike!

On behalf of the Institute,
Axel Beer

Teaching-related matters

Information on our current and upcoming courses (such as advance registration for our EBC classes for students working at least 20 hours/week) can primarily be found on learn@wu, so please make sure to always check there!

General teaching-related information can also be found on our website here.

Important information regarding EBC3

While all EBC3 classes will feature the same basic structure, lecturers will be offering different core elements. Therefore, it is essential that you study the respective syllabi before you sign up for a class to make sure that you have the best chance of getting into a course that is aligned with your own interests. Also, please note that you don't to buy a coursebook for EBC3, as lecturers will provide you with whatever materials are required for their classes.
