Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien (Vienna University of Economics and Business)
Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien cover important elements of the so called Industry 4.0 based on the expertise in economic sciences, i.e., value chain & production planning and simulation, mass customization.
One of the goals WU has set itself is to achieve and maintain a place among the world’s leading institutions of higher education. WU is working to strengthen its global profile by offering a range of English-taught master’s programs and also by emphasizing internationalization in its research activities. WU’s triple accreditation by EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA – the three foremost international accreditations for business and economics universities – is a testimonial of WU’s high quality standards. Less than 1% of universities worldwide can claim triple accreditation by EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA. WU is one of only two universities in the German-speaking world to belong to this exclusive group of schools. WU’s excellent international reputation is reflected in its student population: Roughly one in four students on campus has come to study at WU from abroad.
Excellent research is another main cornerstone of WU’s mission. This includes not only strengthening WU’s profile as a research university, but also participating in public discourse with society and exchanging knowledge with all relevant stakeholders. Continuous work to strengthen and stimulate research is one of WU’s key priorities for the future.
