Short Programs of WU Partner Universities

In addition to International Short Programs abroad organized by WU (see here for an overview), WU’s partner universities also offer short programs. Below you can find a selection of recommended programs for WU students interested in attending a short program organized by one of WU's partner universities. For some of the programs listed below, students can be nominated by WU.

Please note the following important information regarding credit transfer and the IBW International Experience:

  • Students enrolled in BaWiSo 2019: Whether a program is suitable for fulfilling (part of) the IBW International Experience for Bachelor's students can be found below in the key facts of each program.

  • Students enrolled in BaWiSo 2023: In most cases, credits completed in a Short Program offered by WU partner universities can be recognized as part of Courses Abroad or International Experience (IBW). Please note that this is only possible if the Short Program takes place outside of Austria and outside of the student’s home country. Courses completed abroad must be related to business and/or economics and must be graded (pass/fail is not sufficient).
