All of our lecturers come from the business world and well-known Austrian companies, which gives the teaching a strong practical focus.

And because people work with and not against one another, the atmosphere at the university makes it a great place to study. On this programme you will always find someone who is there to give support and help with any problems. So I got off to an excellent start in HR management.
