Loca­tion and venue

WU Vi­enna is the largest uni­versity fo­cus­ing on busi­ness and eco­nom­ics in Europe and one of the largest uni­versit­ies in Aus­tria. It has been con­tinu­ously ranked as one of the best busi­ness schools in Europe and belongs to an el­ite club of few uni­versit­ies hold­ing triple ac­cred­it­a­tion by EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA. WU’s roughly 2,100 em­ploy­ees are work­ing con­tinu­ously to fur­ther im­prove teach­ing and re­search qual­ity and cam­pus life in all rel­ev­ant areas. Ex­cel­lent, re­search-led teach­ing is ex­tremely im­port­ant to WU. Through re­search and edu­ca­tion, WU con­trib­utes to sus­tain­able, fu­ture-ori­ented think­ing, re­spons­ib­il­ity in busi­ness and eco­nom­ics, and the devel­op­ment of solu­tions to eco­nomic, so­cial, and eco­lo­gical prob­lems. WU of­fers a broad range of Eng­lish-taught pro­grammes and em­phas­ises in­ter­na­tion­al­isa­tion in its re­search activ­it­ies. Apart from its im­press­ive, award-win­ning ar­chi­tec­ture, WU’s mod­ern cam­pus also boasts a range of at­tract­ive din­ing op­tions and pub­licly ac­cess­ible grounds that en­cour­age stu­dents, staff, and area res­id­ents to ex­plore Cam­pus WU and en­joy its unique at­mo­sphere.
