After his school leaving exams at a higher technical institute for electronic data processing and organization, Roman Wörner obtained a degree in “Project Management and Information Technology” at the University of Applied Sciences bfi Vienna. At the same UAS, he completed the part-time study programme “European Economy and Business Management”.

„Promotio sub auspicii Praesidentis rei publicae”, the graduation under the auspices (patronage) of the Austrian president, is an Austrian award to honour excellent academic performance. Candidates are proposed to the Ministry of Science and Research by the senate of the university. Conditions are, beside an “excellent pass” from higher secondary education, a Bachelor’s/ Master’s/ Diploma degree, as well as a PhD, with distinction. This prize was last awarded at the WU in 1992.
