University of Vienna

Introduction

The University of Vienna was founded in 1365. It is the oldest university in the German-speaking world and one of the largest in Central Europe. Currently, about 91.000 students are enrolled at the University of Vienna. 179 courses can be taken, of which 56 are Bachelor Programmes, 112 Master Programmes, 3 Diploma Programmes and 8 PhD Programmes. With a staff of 9.400 employees, 6.700 of whom are academic, the University of Vienna is the largest teaching and research institution in Austria. It aims to sustain a wide range of studies, but at the same time to promote new and innovative fields of research, and to establish new networks between subjects.

aResearch and teaching

The main task and goal of this university lie in creating and sustaining top-quality research and teaching, which are regarded as one inseparable entity ("research-guided teaching"). A strong focus on research, combining fundamental with application-oriented research, renders this University highly attractive for the sharpest minds. Research and teaching at the University of Vienna comprise a wide range of faculties: from Catholic and Protestant Theology, Law, Business and Economics, Computer Science, Historical and Cultural Studies, Philological and Cultural Studies, Philosophy and Educational Sciences, Psychology,Social Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry to Earth Sciences, Geography, Astronomy, Life Sciences, Translation Studies, Sports Sciences, and Molecular Biology.

aInternational networking

The University of Vienna has always been strongly orientated towards international research and teaching and therefore is continuing its efforts to maintain its relationships with other countries. It is part of the ERASMUS/SOCRATES Programme and member of several international networks such as ASEA-UNINET, the Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe (UNICA), and the European University Association (EUA).

From 363 European partner universities, the University of Vienna has entered into an ERASMUS-Partnership with 350 universities. Students from approximately 130 countries attend more than 10.000 lectures at the University of Vienna every year.

MSc Business Administration

Campus Full time March 2019 Austria Vienna

The master programme Business Administration (Master BW) has been fundamentally reformed and, starting winter semester 2016/17, will offer the possibility to choose specialisations in various subject areas in the amount of 80 ECTS and thus customize the individual studies better to demands and personal career aspirations. [+]

The master programme Business Administration (Master BW) has been fundamentally reformed and, starting winter semester 2016/17, will offer the possibility to choose specialisations in various subject areas in the amount of 80 ECTS and thus customize the individual studies better to demands and personal career aspirations.

In addition, students are familiarized with methods and instruments of business fields as well as related fields such as Business Law, Economic Sociology, Business IT, Economics and Statistics. Upon graduation, the former students are able to solve management problems independently and apply acquired method skills to solve economic problems.

Furthermore, master programme students are prepared to extend their university education as part of a PhD degree course in business administration or business law subject.... [-]


MSc Computational Science

Campus Full time 2 years March 2019 Austria Vienna

The Master of Science degree program, Computational Science, trains students to become experts in the computer-aided aspects of the natural sciences. This emerging and highly-demanded field is interdisciplinary, connecting computer science and mathematics with astronomy, biology, chemistry, and physics. The program focuses on computationally relevant aspects of research and data processing in each domain of science. [+]

Current natural science domain-specific problems are tackled by means of scientific and mathematical tools and translated into computer algorithms. Since only computational analysis allows in-depth research of complex and highly interconnected systems, Computational Scientists employ "computer experiments" in order to investigate current issues, such as:

cosmological models molecular medicine biological neural networks molecular dynamics drug development particle and quantum physics big data analysis and machine learning

This interdisciplinary Master of Science degree program stands out, due to the broad research areas in the MIN-fields (Mathematics, Informatics/computer science, Natural sciences – astronomy, biology, chemistry, physics). These are always discussed from a Computational Science viewpoint:... [-]


MSc Ecology and Ecosystems

Campus Full time 2 years March 2019 Austria Vienna

The master program Ecology and Ecosystems (MEC) addresses fundamental problems in ecology in a holistic way. [+]

The master program Ecology and Ecosystems (MEC) addresses fundamental problems in ecology in a holistic way. Core topics are the role of organisms in the functionality of ecosystems, and the factors responsible for the spatial and temporal variations in biodiversity and functioning of systems. The study program takes both an organismic and an ecosystem-based approach to ecology — thereby complementing two related curricula at the University of Vienna. These are Environmental Sciences, which is strongly rooted in geosciences, and Conservation Biology & Biodiversity Management (in the German language), which is specifically devoted to the theory and practice of nature conservation — from the species to the landscape level....

MSc Zoology

Campus Full time 2 years March 2019 Austria Vienna

The master’s programme zoology aims at students interested in modern research regarding animal life forms. It conveys an organism-oriented approach as well as the practical application of innovative research methods for analysing the behaviour, body structure, function, development and evolution of animal life forms. [+]

The master’s programme zoology aims at students interested in modern research regarding animal life forms. It conveys an organism-oriented approach as well as the practical application of innovative research methods for analysing the behaviour, body structure, function, development and evolution of animal life forms.

The master’s programme Zoology was introduced in winter semester 2007. The main admission requirement is the completion of a bachelor’s degree or equivalent degree in a closely related discipline at a university or institution of postsecondary education in Austria or abroad.

Based on two compulsory modules, the elective modules allow a specialisation in various directions and methods of zoological research. One main aspect of the programme is the practical scientific training in special courses, seminars and field trips, all of which prepare the student for writing the master's thesis. Scientific methods and techniques (such as confocal microscopy, 3D reconstruction, electron microscopy, and methods used molecular biology), which are the core competencies for professional work inside and outside the university sector, are conveyed in small groups of students....

Master

MSc International Business Administration

Campus Full time March 2019 Austria Vienna

The master program International Business Administration (Master IBW) will be offered in its new structure as an interdisciplinary study program as of winter semester 2016/2017. [+]

The master program International Business Administration (Master IBW) will be offered in its new structure as an interdisciplinary study program as of winter semester 2016/2017.

In addition to business administrative skills and economic basics, students have the unique possibility to choose a cultural region in which they want to be extensively educated.

At the moment Europe, Africa, China, Japan, South Asia, Latin America and the Slavic regions are offered. For each cultural region language, historical, sociological and cultural skills, as well as legal competencies, are acquired. These are the basis for future international labor market requirements.

Graduates are able to solve complex management problems in an international environment independently and are thus indispensable employees for international companies.... [-]
