SBWL-fair: The benefits of studying E&I


In the context of the ÖH SBWL-fair, Univ.-Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke informed bachelor students about the benefits of studying E&I.

The SBWL E&I is one of the most renowned and popular specializations for bachelor students at the Vienna University of Economics and Business.

Graduates from our specialization work in a variety of industries and professions. Our over 2400 alumni enjoy exciting and prestigious careers ranging from top managers in large corporations and business consultants to innovation managers and start-up founders.

The success of our alumni is to a large degree a result of the unique education they received as part of the E&I specialization, which stands out from other specializations due to the following four points:

  • Lecturers apply an award winning problem-based learning approach with state-of-the-art content

  • Application-oriented education – around 30 real-world projects in cooperation with start-ups and large corporations each semester

  • Powerful network – around 50 partners from research and the private sector, incl. BCG, Accenture, and Deloitte, involved in our curriculum each semester

  • Close collaboration with the startup ecosystem, offering impulses from and exchange with experts and like-minded people

The E&I Ambassadors are current and former students of the SBWL and can give you first-hand insights into our specialization based on their personal experience. In addition, they are happy to provide you with support during your application phase.

We are looking forward to new members of the E&I community.
