The focus of the degree program
The degree programs (full-time and part-time) are based on the following four areas:
Comprehensive knowledge in business administration and business law
i.e. strategic and operative management, accounting, business controlling, marketing, HR management, organization, business law
Entrepreneurial thinking and interdisciplinary analytical skills
i.e. case studies, business simulations, business field projects with partner companies
Development of methodical, communicative and social skills
i.e. project management, research skills and methods, business English, personality development, team work, career planning and entrepreneurial skills
Specialization in two of the three following areas
Human resources management, product management (marketing) or business controlling
The Bachelor’s degree program in Management & Entrepreneurship is geared towards the following target groups:
- Graduates from all types of secondary school, who see a future for themselves in management and who want to keep all sectors and career fields open (i.e. business controlling, marketing, HR)
- (Future) business leaders, who want to implement their new business ideas and want to lead a crisis-proof company
- People in technical or scientific career fields, who need solid business studies skills to be promoted to a management position
- Commercial specialists who need a good understanding of how businesses work, so as to further their careers.
The degree program is offered in two formats, part-time (classes in the evening) and full-time (classes during the day).
It is possible to complete approximately 50% of courses in English in the bilingual full-time degree program.
The part-time degree program is held at times which are compatible for people with careers and is also supported by e-learning elements and the improved distribution of exams throughout the semester.
During the first three semesters of the Bachelor’s degree, the theoretical fundamentals of business administration (i.e. accounting, marketing, HR management) and business law (i.e. contract law, company law) are covered. The development of methodical, communicative and social skills are also concentrated on in the first three semesters.
In the 4th, 5th and 6th semester, analysis of the connections between the different areas of expertise comes to the fore (lateral thinking). In the last few semesters the practical relevance of teaching increases. Practical relevance is ensured by introducing guest lecturers from companies, internships and allowing students to carry out real-life business field projects. The practical relevance of the degree program is guaranteed throughout, due to the employment of external lecturers with a background in business.
The high level of practical relevance guarantees that we are at the forefront of business and that our graduates will have excellent chances on the labor market.
Graduates receive the title Bachelor of Arts in Business, or BA and can pursue a Master’s degree in a related field at a domestic or international university of applied sciences or university.
Know more – do more
The requirements of the labor market are growing and growing – making it increasingly important to be “fit for the job” after completing your degree program. Curricula are improved on an ongoing basis so as to fit in with developments in the working world and new international trends. This is to prepare our graduates for the beginning of – or the next step in – their careers. Our motto spans from “know more” to “do more” – meaning that we focus more on practical strengths learned. Teaching, learning and exams at FHWien der WKW are completed in modules. This means: Topic blocks make up modules, and at the end of the module there is an exam.
What is a module?
A module is a teaching unit consisting of multiple topic blocks, which are thematically linked and cover a specific area relevant to the degree program. In this module, clearly defined skills will be developed, with an examination of all sub elements at the end.
How does it help students?
Teaching is directed towards learning outcomes. Competency-based learning and fewer exams – which are integrated and more comprehensive – make up the curricula. Students’ personal development and their employability in business is our central goal.
