Our program is open to a selected group of students, who fulfill the admission requirements by having excellent academic records and showing a strong interest in working in a culturally diverse global environment.
If you are interested in International Management / CEMS Program at Vienna University of Economics and Business, please familiarize yourself with all relevant information about application process, prerequisites and deadlines. You may use the application guide to ensure that your application process runs smoothly.
IMPORTANT: The decision rights for which educational programs fulfill the basic requirements for programs offered at WU lie with WU’s admissions office. Please reach out to our colleagues for questions about the eligibility of specific courses or programs.
All required documents have to be uploaded via the online application tool. The admission office then checks if the applications meet the formal criteria. Please bear in mind our application deadlines.
IMPORTANT: Priority deadline III does not apply for the International Management/CEMS program. Only the first two priority deadlines are available for this program, meaning that the final application deadline is January 8th (for 2019/2020 intake).
LANGUAGES: Please note, that Language Admission Requirements are different from CEMS Graduation Requirements , you might be therefore requested to do additional language course or test during your studies.
Those applicants who fulfill the minimum requirements and prove a convincing achievement potential will be invited for an admission interview. Admission interviews have to take place in person. The interviews are conducted in small groups and students will have to discuss a general business case (one hour of case preparation time will be given right before the interview). Candidates will also be asked about their motivation for the program and about their personal aspirations. The first round of interviews takes place in the end of November and the second round in mid-March.
IMPORTANT: Unfortunately, we are unable to offer Skype interviews. The reason for that is the crucial role the interaction between the candidates plays in the decision who should be accepted in the program.
