"I love the international environment."

Andi from Austria applied for the BBE because of its international outlook and environment. The program looks closely at what makes the economy tick, not just in one specific country, and gives him the skills to study and work anywhere in the world.

"Vienna, a city famous for arts and music."

Ivona transferred to WU from another university because of the practically oriented specializations and the outstanding academic environment WU has to offer. At WU, she enjoys a dynamic student life. Ivona is thrilled to live in Vienna, one of Europe’s foremost centers of culture and entrepreneurship.

The bachelor’s program

After gaining solid foundations in business and economics, including social and legal perspectives, you will apply them to practice in various projects. A broad variety of specializations and free electives will open up a wealth of exciting opportunities. Create your own profile by customizing your program to reflect your own interests.

From day one, you will be working closely together with your peers in an interactive setting. Group projects, discussions, and presentations will strengthen your interpersonal and communication skills.
