International Programmes

The UAS BFI Vienna has encouraged strong internationalization of all programmes from the beginning. The ideal framework for this has been the EU action programme Lifelong Learning, in which the UAS has participated since 1998.

The UAS BFI Vienna’s strong internationalization efforts have resulted in three degree programmes taught entirely in English: European Economy and Business Management (bachelor programme), International Banking and Finance (master programme), Quantitative Asset and Risk Management (master programme) and Strategic HR Management in Europe (master programme).

All other degree programmes – both bachelor and master – also offer various classes taught in English. In order to find out which classes are taught in English go to the UAS’s ECTS course descriptions.

In addition to the English taught classes in the degree programmes the UAS BFI Vienna also offers classes addressing specifically the international dimensions of key business subject areas. These classes are:

  • European Economic History (5 ECTS Credits)
  • European Union Development (5 ECTS Credits)
  • Intercultural Management (5 ECTS Credits)
  • International Corporate Finance (5 ECTS Credits)
  • International Business Policy (5 ECTS Credits)
  • International Marketing (5 ECTS Credits)
  • International Project Management (5 ECTS Credits)

For course descriptions see:

Incoming students can also attend classes focusing on Austrian language and culture which have been designed to give incoming students the opportunity to study German as a foreign language and to give them an insight into the Austrian society and culture. For more information go to:

Thanks to numerous projects and programmes, the UAS BFI Vienna has in recent years succeeded in building a close network with both European and more distant universities. Exchange and collaborative agreements exist with the following institutions:
