WU has a large global network of about 240 international partner universities (120 at a graduate level). With currently 18 of those universities we closely coordinate our study program such that you can go on an exchange semester and take the courses you are most interested in for credit. These universities represent some of the best places to study economics. We are continuously working to expand that network.

The curriculum of the Economics Master's Program at WU is flexible such that you can make great use of the huge potential created by the internationalization of economic education. For example, by taking courses abroad you can design your own area of specialization and study with some of the most renowned professors in the respective field. Thereby the curriculum of the WU Program gets greatly leveraged internationally. An exchange semester is optional, however.

Here you find a long, but still incomplete list of courses offered by our partner universities that WU students can take for credit when going on an exchange semester.
