Message from the Director

It is my honor to welcome you to Webster Vienna, a private university in the heart of Europe, which combines the best of the American educational system with an international perspective.

Joining the Webster Vienna community means you will be joining a global community, one with classmates from over 70 countries and well over 130 faculty and staff united by their quest for knowledge, their commitment to lifelong learning and their desire to make a difference.

It is said that success favors those who are prepared to grasp opportunity when it presents itself. An advanced degree is an important instrument in preparing yourself for such opportunities. We at Webster Vienna pride ourselves in creating programs that are designed to provide students with the tools, knowledge and skills to thrive in a globalized world. Our teaching is student-centered and provides a solid mix of rigorous academics and hands-on practical skills. Most importantly, it aims at the development of critical thinking – the key element of every education.

Your time at university should be amongst the best years of your life. It would be my pleasure to welcome you personally to our new campus at Palais Wenkheim at one of our Open Information Evenings or, better still, as a new student.

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Johannes Pollak
