Vienna itself plays an essential role in the success of the WU Executive Academy and needs no introduction. With its culture and its numerous international organizations and large companies, Austria's capital is more than just a location. It is a central point for international business and study - an environment that provides our leadership and executive education programs with fertile ground for exchange, networking and broadening horizons.

Other elements are found in the academic environment - the unique partnership with the Carlson School of Management combines more than 100 years of excellence in business education and opens up new perspectives and tools to educate tomorrow's leaders. The WU Executive Academy also receives international recognition and distinction through its coveted "Triple Crown" accreditation by AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA, confirming our place among the world's elite business universities.
