The ENGAGE.EU Online Exchange Initiative will take place again in winter semester 2021/22. Details will be added to this website as they become available.


Together with its partners in the ENGAGE.EU alliance, WU Vienna launched an online exchange initiative. Students can apply for a range of online courses offered by participating universities.

  • You will be part of a virtual and international classroom. Benefit from international learning opportunities and exchange ideas with students from different countries!

Course offer and application

For details on the courses offer, the application process, and additional information, please refer to the factsheets of the partner universities. If you are a WU student and  interested in attending online courses at one of our partner institutions, you can apply during the application period mentioned in the respective factsheet.


The factsheets of participating universites in winter semester 2021/22 will be made available soon.

Credit Transfer

At the end of your virtual exchange, you will receive an official transcript of records which you will need for the credit transfer process at WU.

On bachelor's level, credits from completed online courses can be transferred to your WU degree as a free elective. 

For students majoring in International Business Administration (IBW), business-related courses are eligible for the IBW international experience. Please be aware of the following regulations:

  • BaWiSo 19 students graduating before October 1, 2021 and BaWiSo 12 students: credits completed as part of the initiative are eligible for the IBW international experience.

  • BaWiSo 19 students graduating after October 1, 2021: if you have completed at least 8 ECTS within the initiative, then this counts as mobility and the IBW international experience is considered completed according to the new BaWiSo 19 curriculum.

Please note that these are special regulations due to COVID-19 and only apply for courses taken within the ENGAGE.EU Online Exchange Initiative and the CBS-HSG-WU Online Course Initiative in winter semester 2020/21, summer semester 2021 and winter semester 2021/22.

Business courses worth at least 4 ECTS credits can also be transferred as international courses / international elective.

If you want to transfer your credits, note that the online course needs to be graded and that a pass/fail is not sufficient!

For all other credit transfers on bachelor’s and master’s level, please contact our colleagues at the Study Service Center: course.abroad@wu.ac.at. When contacting them, include a course description and name the WU study plan item you wish the credits to be transferred to.
