This exchange is open only to W&M students admitted to the Mason School of Business.
 

WU-Wien in Vienna, Austria, has around 20,000 undergraduate students from Austria and abroad, and is the largest business educational institution in Europe. It is renowned for its business program, and this study abroad exchange is specifically designed for W&M students. It strives to accommodate those who do not have prior language skills, but still wish to study business in an international setting. To this end, WU-Wien offers a broad array of classes taught in English and encourages participation in a two-week intensive language and culture course before classes begin. Please note, 6 ECTS credits are equivalent to 3 W&M credits.

WU-Wien is located in the heart of Vienna, a city that celebrates both its historical significance and its modernity. The Historic Center, Schonbrunn Palace, the State Opera House, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Imperial Palace and Vienna Zoo are all popular attractions. WU-Wien also conducts an optional two-week introduction and orientation program to help familiarize students with Vienna and the surrounding area. Students can easily navigate the city by bus, tram or underground (subway) system, and travel throughout Europe via the European Rail Network (EuroRail). The Wein Westbahnhof (Vienna West Rail Station) is easily accessible with trains connecting to Germany, Switzerland, Hungary and more. The City Airport Train (CAT) connects the city to Vienna International Airport.

The tuition exchange agreement between the College of William and Mary and WU-Wien allows W&M students to pay their regular tuition to W&M while taking classes at WU-Wien. Students pay for housing, meals and fees on site in Vienna.

 NOTE: 1. Applications are first reviewed by the Reves Center, and students nominated for the exchange program are notified. Application materials are then sent to the school abroad (and the school abroad often requests additional materials at this time). When the school abroad completes their application review, students are then notified of the final acceptance decision. This timeline varies greatly from school to school. In rare cases a student nominated by the Reves Center will not be selected by the school abroad to attend their university; the Reves Center would then explore further options for the student. 2. Any start and end dates listed are to serve as a guide for general planning, but specific dates are subject to change and may not include mandatory orientation programs or exams.
