Center for Academic Continuing Education
The Center for Academic Continuing Education gives participants with professional experience the chance to receive an MSc, an MBA or title of Academic Expert.
In contrast to classical studies that follow the traditional path of completing high school, then a Bachelor’s degree, then a Master’s degree, admission criteria for continuing education programs are based on the length and quality of your professional experience. In this way, we are implementing the internationally established concept of Continuing Education Master programs in Austria.
Your prior career-relevant knowledge will be recognized and developed to university level. Courses last between two and four semesters.
The portfolio includes 19 continuing education programs in 14 study areas. The programs are part-time.
