ENGAGE.EU Online Exchange Initiative
Gain international experience without leaving home!
Together with its partners in the ENGAGE.EU alliance (LUISS University, NHH Norwegian School of Economics, Tilburg University, Université Toulouse 1 Capitole, University of Mannheim, University of National and World Economy), WU Vienna launched an online exchange initiative. Students from above mentioned WU partner universities can apply for a range of online courses offered by WU.
As a participant, you will be part of a virtual and international classroom. Benefit from international learning opportunities and exchange ideas with students from different countries!
Courses are held between October 1, 2020 and December 18, 2020. Note that each course has its own individual schedule. WU courses are typically seminar-type with continuous assessment. This means that your final grade is based on several performance elements: active participation in the course, home assignments, case studies, and final exam. WU does not have a central examination period. The specific grading criteria are listed in the course description.
For the detailed course schedule and description, please click on the courses title (note: the online course catalogue will be available from July 22, 2020 onwards)
Note that spots per course are limited to a maximum of 5 students.
Make sure you read the syllabus thoroughly as it contains information on live online sessions, the schedule and course requirements.
At the end of your virtual exchange, you will receive an official transcipt of records from WU. For credit transfer options, please check with your home institution.
