In 1995, the FH JOANNEUM was founded. Since then, our students appreciate the differences and particular features of FH JOANNEUM: A field-oriented education with a good but not overloaded theoretical foundation. Above all, it offers a lot of practice in semesters abroad or internships in companies. These were huge differences to the classical university studies at that time.
Lecturers and employees of the Institute of Industrial Management at FH JOANNEUM are passing on their know-how about corporate and personal development in the form of short seminars and workshops.In doing so, the knowledgefactoryIWI is facilitating the transfer of knowledge from university to the workplace.
The FH JOANNEUM research strategy rests on three pillars emphasising the social significance of our R&D activities: It promotes ecologically, socially and economically sustainable concepts. It is focused on benefit to society and the living space of individuals and groups. It is committed to an understanding of innovation that combines creative impetus with a solution and market oriented approach.

I was the only one from my home university and there wasn't anyone at the campus, so I could practice all of my languages (French, English, German, Spanish). This way I was also fully integrated into the Austrian life.
On the one hand I liked that we had our own GBP class only with international students, but because of that we were not able to integrate with austrian students, and I mostly only used english during my stay.
