Information about the current COVID-19 situation
With regard to the current situation on the coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like to inform you that WU Vienna is closely monitoring the situation and proactively following healthcare and safety regulations in close coordination with the national authorities.
We expect to run our ISUWU summer program as planned. If there are any changes to the program or program details, we will publish them online. Should it become necessary to cancel the ISUWU program in summer 2020, we will additionally send the information to all registered students and partners.
If a student is unable to participate due to force majeure or in case of program cancellation, we will reimburse all program and tuition fees accrued. With regard to further payments and deposits, we recommend that students familiarize themselves with all terms and conditions of the contracts concluded until then. In this case, students must contact the relevant provider.
The safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff is our highest priority. Of course, we are always available for questions and concerns.
We launched a webpage which provides news and updates on the current situation on WU Campus: News and Updates: COVID-19 This site will also be updated on a regular basis to keep all students well informed.

ISUWU stands for ...
"I" for International Academic Education...
…provided by a team of experienced WU and international lecturers who offer a large variety of business-related courses in English. These courses do not aim to provide basic knowledge, but to deepen the students’ understanding of business topics. Engaging teaching methods are used in all courses and are complemented by interesting company visits.
"S" for Social Networking…
…by living and working together in an intercultural students group during an intensive 3-week program with the possiblity to immerge into the Austrian culture. Courses, company visits, field trips, and many social activities in and around Vienna provide participants with ample opportunities to interact with peers from around the world, build long-lasting friendships, and widen their cultural horizons.
"U" for Unforgettable Experiences
Students will make unique experiences by also benefitting from the location of the program:
... The Campus.
Europe’s largest university of economics and business with just under 23.000 students originating from 110 countries moved to a brand-new campus in October 2013. Making its home right beside the famous Prater park, the campus catches attention due to its unique modern architecture providing an ideal environment for students, teachers and research purposes..
... The City of Vienna.
Not only rich in history and culture, Vienna has also been voted the city with the highest quality of living according to the Mercer survey for several consecutive times in a row. The capital is home to magnificent historical buildings, traditional coffee houses and offers beautiful landscapes and recreational opportunities in the immediate surroundings. Numerous international organisations are based in Vienna, such as the United Nations.
... The Country, Austria.
Lying in the heart of Europe, the small alpine nation is a gateway between East and West in Europe and a central hub for travel and commerce. Balancing perfectly between the urban and the outdoors, Austria provides opportunities for every taste, from cresting high mountains to strolling down the streets of imperial Vienna.
The classroom was not a typical one in which the professor shared his knowledge. It was rather a platform in which ideas and perspectives from all around the world came together. The leisure program helped me make friends from all around the world, explore other cultures and wander around beautiful Vienna. This program did not only enrich my academic knowledge but it helped me grow as a person. I really wish that I will be able to meet the ISU WU students again. Maybe in future business meetings! And maybe in beautiful Vienna!
