Have you fulfilled the admissions requirements for a Master’s degree at FHWien der WKW? Then nothing is standing in your way to applying. The following application steps are waiting for you:
The application period for winter semester 2020/2021 starts in January 8, 2020.
You will receive your personal login data via e-mail once you have registered. With the login data, you will have access to our online application form. This form should be printed out once you have filled it out.
You will need various copies of documents as well as your printed and signed application form. You can find out which documents you need in the checklist for Master’s students.
Applicants with a foreign degree must have their documents translated into German or English by a court certified translator. Please respect the relevant rules of certification for your country. Determining the equivalence of certificates/degrees from foreign countries can take up to three weeks. For this reason we recommend that you send in the relevant documentation in a timely manner.
Together with a printout of the application form, all application documents (loose, not stuck together in any way) should be sent by mail to:
FHWien der WKW
Information and Admissions Center
Währinger Gürtel 97
The postmark is used as proof of the date of mailing.
Computer-based admissions test
The computer-based admissions test takes place electronically. In the general (crossdisciplinary) part, your general business administration skills will be tested. The focus of the subject-specific part is on user-oriented business administration knowledge and understanding of management contexts.
Depending on your prior business knowledge, we recommend the following literature to help you prepare for the admissions test:
- Ebert, R.J., Griffin, R.W.: Business Essentials, Pearson, United Kingdom, 2018, 12th edition
- Drury, C.: Management Accounting for Business, Cengage Learning EMEA, United Kingdom, 2019, 7th edition
It is not compulsory to read everything; they are just suggestions that you could use to prepare yourself with.
We see ourselves as the leading university for management & communication. Therefore, you can expect a particularly challenging admissions procedure.
Since we want to know what potential you have, the computer-based test contains a number of questions that are not easy to answer. Please do not be discouraged by this! This will give us a more accurate picture of your potential and talents.
Seize the opportunity to show us what potential and strengths you already have!
