WU Center of Excellence

"The Center of Ex­cel­lence is not a phys­ical venue but a place of in­tel­lec­tual dis­course" (Os­kar Grün 1989)
The Center of Ex­cel­lence (CoE) was launched in 1989 by the Pro­fess­ors' As­so­ci­ation of the Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness. It is a per­man­ent Hon­ors Pro­gram in­ten­ded to en­cour­age and sup­port high po­ten­tial and high per­form­ance stu­dents.
The CoE is a net­work of stu­dents, cor­por­ate part­ners, non­profit or­gan­iz­a­tions and aca­demic ment­ors: The ideas and re­sources flow­ing from and between these dif­fer­ent or­gan­iz­a­tions al­low inde­pend­ent, dis­tinct­ive groups to form, bound to­gether by the com­mon val­ues of CoE.
The CoE con­cept has proven it­self well over the years: To date, over 1700 stu­dents have been able to profit from the op­por­tun­it­ies offered by CoE. The 44 CoE groups are sup­por­ted by some 25 com­pan­ies, over 25 pro­fess­ors, 44 assist­ants and ad­min­is­trat­ive staff mem­bers (for de­tails in Ger­man, please click here).
