Selection Procedure

A se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure for ad­mis­sion to the Bach­elor’s Pro­gram in Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics will be held once a year in the spring. Ap­plic­ants who suc­cess­fully pass the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure can en­roll in the pro­gram in the fol­low­ing aca­demic year. The pro­gram starts in the win­ter semester only.

De­tailed in­form­a­tion on the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure for the 2019/20 aca­demic year will be avail­able in Janu­ary 2019.

Se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure sched­ule for the 2018/19 aca­demic year

1.) On­line re­gis­tra­tion, March 1 – May 15, 2018

Be­fore the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure be­gins, ap­plic­ants for the pro­gram must com­plete the on­line re­gis­tra­tion form and pay the € 50 ap­plic­a­tion fee. The ap­plic­a­tion fee can be paid by tele­bank­ing, eps on­line bank trans­fer or by credit card (Visa / Mas­ter­card / Amer­ican Ex­press / Diners Club). The € 50 ap­plic­a­tion fee must be in WU’s ac­count by May 15, 2018. Ac­count in­form­a­tion is provided in the on­line re­gis­tra­tion tool. After you have paid the ap­plic­a­tion fee, check the re­gis­tra­tion tool to en­sure that your pay­ment has been re­ceived.

Please note: The ap­plic­a­tion fee is gen­er­ally non-re­fund­able even if an ap­plic­a­tion is either re­jec­ted or en­roll­ment is can­celled.

It is possible but not re­quired to sub­mit a let­ter of mo­tiv­a­tion at the time of re­gis­tra­tion. See step I of the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure.

2.) De­cision on whether se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure will be held on May 17, 2018

Ap­plic­ants will be in­formed by email if a se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure will be tak­ing place. If the num­ber of ap­plic­ants who com­plete the on­line re­gis­tra­tion form dur­ing the re­gis­tra­tion period ex­ceeds the num­ber of places avail­able in the pro­gram, the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure will take place. See step I of the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure. If there are fewer ap­plic­ants than avail­able places, the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure will not go for­ward. In this case, ap­plic­ants can en­roll in the pro­gram start­ing on July 3, 2018.

The num­ber of ap­plic­ants for the aca­demic year 2018/19 who have com­pleted the on­line re­gis­tra­tion and paid the re­gis­tra­tion fee by the dead­line ex­ceeds the num­ber of places avail­able in this pro­gram. There­fore, the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure will be held.

For more in­form­a­tion on the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure, please refer to the sec­tion "If the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure is held" below.

If the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure is held

Step I, let­ter of mo­tiv­a­tion and proof of Eng­lish skills, May 17 – June 01, 2018 (23:59 CET)

Ap­plic­ants must sub­mit a let­ter of Mo­tiv­a­tion and provide proof of their Eng­lish skills, if they have not already done so at re­gis­tra­tion.

Let­ter of mo­tiv­a­tion

Proof of Eng­lish skills

All ap­plic­ants will be in­formed by email if the step II of the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure will be re­quired. If the num­ber of let­ters of mo­tiv­a­tion sub­mit­ted by the dead­line ex­ceeds the num­ber of places avail­able in the pro­gram, then an en­trance exam will be held. If the num­ber of let­ters of mo­tiv­a­tion sub­mit­ted does not ex­ceed the num­ber of places avail­able in the pro­gram, the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure will not go for­ward. In this case, ap­plic­ants can en­roll in the pro­gram start­ing on July 3, 2018.

Step II, en­trance exam, July 10, 2018

The en­trance exam will be held on July 10, 2018 in Vi­enna. All ap­plic­ants will be in­formed by email in due time of the ex­act time and loca­tion of the en­trance exam.

Exam ma­ter­ial

Im­port­ant in­form­a­tion on the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure

The entire se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure is con­duc­ted in Eng­lish, in­clud­ing all com­mu­nic­a­tions with ap­plic­ants, the let­ter of mo­tiv­a­tion, and the en­trance exam. Suf­fi­cient pro­fi­ciency in Eng­lish is there­fore a pre­requis­ite to par­ti­cip­a­tion in the se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure.

The se­lec­tion pro­ced­ure is not re­quired for the fol­low­ing ap­plic­ants:

  • Ap­plic­ants who, by means of a dis­ab­il­ity card is­sued by the Fed­eral So­cial Wel­fare Of­fice (Bundessozi­alamt), provide evid­ence of long-last­ing dis­ab­il­ity of a de­gree of at least 50% which makes it im­possible for them to take the writ­ten exam. Please con­tact the Dis­ab­il­ity Com­mis­sioner for Stu­dents if this ap­plies to you.
