WU University Archives

Wel­come to the webpage of the Archives of Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness (WU)!

The WU Uni­versity Archives col­lects writ­ten and visual re­cords doc­u­ment­ing the his­tory of WU and the his­tor­ical in­sti­tu­tions from which it evolved:    

  • The Im­per­ial Ex­port Academy (kais­er­lich-könig­liche Ex­port-Akademie, 1898-1919)

  • The Uni­versity of World Trade (Hoch­schule für Welthan­del, 1919-1975)

  • The Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness (Wirtschaft­suni­versität Wien, from 1975 on­wards).

The WU Uni­versity Archives was es­tab­lished in 2015 and is part of the WU Uni­versity Lib­rary.

In ad­di­tion to safe­guard­ing, re­cord­ing and mak­ing avail­able the re­cords for in­ter­ested per­sons, the Archives con­ducts re­search on WU’s his­tory. See for example re­search on Nazi-­con­fis­cated works and the Me­morial Book for Vic­tims of Na­tional So­cial­ism at the Uni­versity for World Trade 1938-1945.
