Global Executive MBA - Double degree program

ⓘ Covid-19: Currently, we are offering modules in a hybrid format, i.e. in-class teaching with simultaneous online participation for those students who are facing travel restrictions.


Global Executive MBA

2 internationally recognized degrees, 1 international business program.  

The Global Executive MBA program is the result of a groundbreaking partnership between two of the world’s most respected business universities: the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Vienna) and the Carlson Business School, University Of Minnesota.

Because of this unique arrangement, graduates receive both a European MBA award and an MBA from the USA, meaning they earn two highly respected and recognized qualifications from just one program. 

Learn from the Finest Minds in the Business World

This revolutionary program aims to bring together the insights of business leaders from all over the world to provide students with one truly unique 360˚global perspective.

To fulfil this vision, WU Executive Academy has brought together a faculty made up of the most respected business experts from different fields all over the world, each bringing their own unique perspectives and experiences to the table. Students also gain firsthand insights into the inner workings of successful enterprises through a series of visits to local and international companies.

Get a 360˚ Global Perspective with 3 Different International Residencies

In addition to attending classes in Vienna, students also participate in three international residencies during their course: first travelling to Chile and Brazil, then a split residency in China and India later in the year, before finally completing a week-long extended residency at our partner university in Minnesota, USA. Each of these trips provides a different perspective on international business, exposing students to new corporate cultures, attitudes, and ideas.

Earn While You Learn With Just 40 Days of Class Time

The Global Executive MBA program is designed by business professionals, for business professionals. Because they understand the challenges today’s executives face, the course has been structured so that students can complete it while taking as little time away from their job as possible.

Students earn their MBA in just 16 months, with only 40 days out of the office, allowing them to continue to progress in their career while working to expand their knowledge and develop professionally in our MBA program.

Connect with a Truly International Executive Community

The Global Executive MBA program attracts professionals from all over the world, giving students the chance to forge valuable personal and business connections that can have untold benefits on their future careers.

Even after completing your course you’ll continue to form new relationships within the international business community. With access to the prestigious and exclusive WU Executive Academy Alumni Network, graduation is only the beginning.
