Tailor-made study programs for working people

Our Master’s degree programs are offered exclusively on a part-time basis. Most of the Bachelor’s degree programs can be taken part-time or full-time.

This enables us to support employees in their desire for further training and career development and it’s easy to bring under one roof while working.

Digitalization

Digitalization presents companies with major challenges in their search for employees who, in addition to business competence, also have digital qualifications. We are reacting to this trend and have updated and expanded the topic of digitalization in all degree programs.

In autumn 2019, the new part-time Bachelor’s degree program Digital Business has started. What is unique about it is that it combines digital technology with business applications.

Sustainability

FHWien der WKW has been a pioneer in the field of corporate responsibility since 2012. We were one of the first universities of applied sciences to include business ethics and corporate governance as compulsory subjects in the curricula of all Master’s programs.

In order to ensure that the relevant contents taught in the study programs and all scientific initiatives on the subject comply with internationally recognized standards, FHWien der WKW signed the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) in 2015.

International

Employers attach more and more importance to international experience, intercultural skills and foreign language skills. Therefore, internationalization & mobility are primary goals of FHWien der WKW. Students gain experience abroad during:

  • Semesters abroad
