The research and educational programs at MODUL University Vienna focus on future-oriented strategies that satisfy the needs and ensure the welfare of current and future generations. The university provides answers to economic, environmental and social questions in conjunction with the demand for sustainable economic develop­ment and corresponding strategies.


Like other leading national and international universities, MODUL University Vienna has established a platform for industry research with ties to partners in the industry, a network of agreements with academic partners and affiliations to other important public players. This has been done so in order to enable permeability between fundamental and applied research as well as to enable a precise, visible representation to the public.
