WU is an international university that is very aware of its responsibility to society and the research community and acts conscientiously in all that it does.

Open-mindedness and diversity were already among the university’s key values at WU’s founding in 1898. 


WU's academic programs are characterized by the diversity and quality of the program portfolio, internationality, and close ties to the business community.

WU’s nearly 23,000 students benefit greatly from the diversity of our faculty of almost 720 researchers and teachers with expertise in fields ranging from business administration and economics to law, social sciences, and languages.

WU’s online teaching and learning platform LEARN pro­vides stu­dents with in­ter­ac­tive lessons, learn­ing ma­te­ri­als, per­son­al progress sta­tis­tics, important information about their cours­es, and a variety of com­mu­ni­ca­tion tools.


Excellent research is another main cornerstone of WU’s mission. This includes not only strengthening WU’s profile as a research university, but also participating in public discourse with society and exchanging knowledge with all relevant stakeholders. Continuous work to strengthen and stimulate research is one of WU’s key priorities for the future.


WU grad­u­ates are ide­al­ly equipped for pro­fes­sion­al chal­lenges and in high demand with employers. The WU ZBP Ca­reer Cen­ter pro­vides support for planning and launching a suc­cess­ful ca­reer.

I enjoyed studying at the WU because there are so many economics- and business-related courses to choose from. I was especially interested in ecological economics and found a lot of courses at the WU to pursue my interests. Unfortunately, my studies coincided with the Covid-19 outbreak and lockdowns so I didn't have too many opportunities to have a decent student life....
