Nothing springboards undergraduates into a lucrative, rewarding career like a master’s degree, but choosing the right program is essential. Few universities dedicate the time to providing their prospective students with the information needed to make an informed decision on their future field of study. However, the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Vienna) is dedicating an entire day to helping students make the best choice.
On Nov. 24, 2021, WU Vienna will be virtually showcasing everything there is to know about its nine English-taught master’s programs. At the WU Master’s Day online event, sessions will be conducted by faculty experts who will provide critical insights on each program’s structure, core contents, and specialization options. They will also cover specific job profiles, promising professional fields, and answer live chat queries.
Those taking the WU Vienna online event route will be able to chat with Student Service Center representatives to understand the ins and outs of entrance requirements and admissions. Various lectures will speak in live expert talks on the application process, studying abroad in general, and what life in cosmopolitan Vienna is like.
Prospective students will also get an inside look at Campus WU through a virtual tour hosted by enthusiastic WU students. By checking out the world-class architecture, exploring the spaces for studying and learning, and taking note of insider tips on how to make the most of their time at one of Europe’s largest universities and Austria’s only business school, viewers will get a glimpse into their possible future.
There’s a lot to uncover. Located close to Vienna’s bustling city center and bordered by the lush Prater Park, Campus WU offers international students the best of both worlds – both the hustle and bustle of city life and the tranquility of green spaces. Vienna also features affordable housing, an excellent public infrastructure, and a wide range of cultural and culinary offerings. A growing start-up scene further confirms its reputation as one of the most livable cities in the world.
Anything is possible in an opportunity-filled city with the right education — and WU Master’s Day aims to help students be as successful as possible. By tuning in, students will be able to truly understand the interdisciplinary nature of WU Vienna’s high-quality academic programs. Each program focuses on social, legal, and environmental aspects of today’s economic challenges. WU Vienna has over 100 years of experience in inspiring a sense of responsibility.

Students learn to hone their management skills, language skills, intercultural competence, and media literacy. With the ability to communicate on all available channels in our digitally connected world, they will be speaking to today’s 4.48 billion active social media users – a number that is only increasing. By mastering Instagram Reels, Tweets, traditional press releases, and more, students will gain an unrivalled edge in a competitive talent pool across various thriving industries.
Academic directors Jens Seiffert-Brockmann and Axel Beer confirm the demand for professionals with this know-how, noting, “Successful companies need more than just interesting products and services.

We prepare students to become communication managers who can successfully guide companies with their communication strategies – because you have to reach people to be seen and understood.”
The program is as interactive as it is relevant.
