CEMS @ WU Vienna

After completing their bachelor studies, students are eligible to directly apply for the CEMS/International Management masters degree program at WU Vienna. The program is a full-time degree spanning over 4 terms (i.e. 2 years) and includes one mandatory semester abroad as well as an international internship of minimum 8 weeks.

Students can choose to either start the program with their ‘CEMS year’ or ‘WU year’. When starting the program with the CEMS year, students spend their exchange term during the second term and usually write their master thesis in term 4. Whereas students starting with the WU year go abroad during the third term and typically write their master thesis during the second term.

Per annual intake, up to 80 students are accepted into the CEMS/International Management program at WU. Additionally, approximately 40 incoming students are joining us at WU each term. Thus, the CEMS Club Vienna consists of around 150 students at WU each term which makes us the largest CEMS Club in the community.
