Accreditations & rankings

The Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) – Europe’s leading business university – brings more than 100 years of experience and an excellent reputation to the field of executive education.

Faculty members and experts are drawn from more than 240 universities and from leading corporations worldwide. This is one of the reasons why we are triple-accredited and ranked in numerous business school and MBA rankings.

    • EQUIS Accreditation

      The WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) was the first Austrian university to undergo and successfully complete the international accreditation procedure resulting in the award of the EQUIS seal of quality (European Quality Improvement System) in 2007.

      The accreditation was confirmed in 2010 for another 3 years. In 2013 and 2018, the WU – including, of course, the WU Executive Academy – has received the EQUIS hallmark of excellence for 5 years, the maximum period possible. This makes the WU Executive Academy one of only 3 top providers of MBA programs in the German-speaking world to be EQUIS accredited for the maximum 5-year period.

    • AMBA Accreditation

      In 2010, the WU Executive Academy became the first and only Austrian MBA provider to be awarded the international seal of quality by AMBA (Association of MBAs). The WU Executive Academy is one of only five business schools in the German-speaking world to be AMBA accredited - and one of only two to satisfy the high quality criteria of both EQUIS and AMBA.
