quote illustration

“I chose the University of Applied Sciences BFI Vienna because I’d already started a degree elsewhere. But studying alongside my job and the need to organise my own timetable at the university turned out to be extremely tough. The best solution, and one of UAS BFI Vienna’s strengths, was a part-time programme.

After completing my bachelor degree at the university, I didn’t doubt for a moment that I would do my master here as well. The most important factors for me were completing my degree in three semesters, the relaxed atmosphere and the strong focus on business practice.

Today, I can honestly say that thanks to the impetus from my degree at the university, I was ideally prepared to start out in the international world of work.”
