A Letter from Edeltraud Hanappi-Egger

The Financial Times just ranked the WU’s Masters Degree in International Management among the top 10 management programs worldwide

We asked WU director Edeltraud Hanappi-Egger what choices led to this success and how internationality influences the quality of the program.

Dear Readers!

The FT ranking evaluates degree programs in management based on 16 criteria. A place this high up in the ranking requires very good results in all these categories, but there are of course several areas where WU [Vienna University of Economics and Business] excels:

Out of a total 90 programs ranked, WU is ­number one in the category “international course experience (e.g. student participation in exchange programs).

WU has also achieved impressive results regarding the international career mobility of graduates. ­Generally speaking, all of WU’s activities have an international dimension. Students can be sure to complete academic programs with an international focus.

By the way: WU is one of only 73 universities worldwide with triple international accreditation – a visible sign of its commitment to the ­highest quality standards.
