Welcome to WU
The Vienna University of Economics and Business is a leading academic institution and one of Europe’s most attractive universities in the fields of business and economics. True to its role as an open-minded institution, WU also sees itself as an international university, as an important hub for global exchange, and as a place where students and teachers work together. Open-mindedness and diversity were already among the university’s key values at the time of WU’s founding in 1898.
Here you can find information about the state-of-the-art WU campus, which was designed by seven different architects, among them Zaha Hadid.
