No matter whether you are employed or self-employed - our MBA program fees are fully tax deductible for you if you pay taxes in Austria. The only prerequisite is that the program is regarded as further education in the present field of occupation or as training in a related profession. Depending on your income, you can get up to 50% of the program fee back. Generally speaking, this is true for all programs offered by the WU Executive Academy.
Additionally, not only program fees are fully deductible, but also all other costs incurred (e.g. travel expenses, accommodation). The tax advantage you enjoy directly depends on your total income. This means e.g. for Austria: If you earn more than € 90,000 per year half of all costs will be refunded by the state. If you earn between € 60,000 and € 90,000 per year, approximately 48% will be refunded. Other countries do have similar tax arrangements, slightly varying from the Austrian system. For detailed information in this regard please refer to the responsible institution of the respective country.
