WU is the largest university of economics and business in the European Union and was awarded the prestigious EQUIS and AMBA accreditations. Excellent results in independent international rankings, for example the Financial Times Ranking, are a further indicator of WU’s outstanding quality and international reputation.
The University’s size works to its advantage in the wide range of fields and specializations in teaching and research, the choices for language training, its close network of corporate partners, the comprehensive character of its international programs and its large number of international students. WU plays an important role on the Austrian labor market and has a prominent position in public life through WU alumni in top positions.
Internationalization has always been a WU asset. The membership in CEMS (Community of European Management Schools) and WU’s leadership role in PIM (Partnership in International Management) connect WU to the finest business schools in the world.
More than 230 partner universities in about 55 countries, 23% international students from 100 nations, summer university programs in the CEE region and Asia, the International Summer University in Vienna, a wide variety of courses taught in English, seven master programs taught in English, international internships and various programs are just part of what WU has to offer.

In October 2013 WU moved to a new campus adjacent to the Prater park and the Reed Exhibition and Congress Center. Conveniently located near the city center but in a green area, the modern new campus comes along with an innovative university concept. Six building complexes were built, centered around a Library & Learning Center and designed by renowned international architects. This new campus provides ideal conditions for teaching, learning, and research.
