English Business CommunicationRSS

Welcome to the Institute for English Business Communication!

We are part of the Department of Foreign-Language 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.

Registration for EBC1 in WS19/20

As it stands, there are still a large number of places available overall - as a result, it is highly unlikely that anyone will get into a course from a waiting list position, so please make sure to register for a course that has capacity if you want a guaranteed EBC1 place this semester.

Registration for EBC2 in WS19/20

At this time, we have more open slots available than we have students on waiting lists overall. As a result, we are currently not planning on adding any extra capacity to existing courses. While this might change, your safest option - if you haven't secured a spot yet - is to sign up for a class that does have capacity, or risk being left without any EBC2 place this semester.   

Also, please do NOT contact lecturers or the Institute about admission to our classes - all registrations are done automatically via BACH, and we cannot and will not handle individual requests.

Thank you for your cooperation!
