What students think about Modul University Vienna

    Kyle - MBA

    “Through this MBA program specialising in Sustainable Management, I was introduced to ideas and discussions that aligned with my personal goals of doing meaningful work. Course topics like Social Entrepreneurship combined concepts of running a financially sustainable business whilst being socially and ecologically responsible.

    Through that same Social Entrepreneurship course, I came into contact with the organisation called Social Impact Award, with whom I completed my master thesis and am volunteering. That experience introduced me to the start-up and impact innovation scene here in Austria, which in turn, led me to my current position of Co-country manager for Austria at the social search engine company.”

    Ana Marija - MSc in Sustainable Development, Management and Policy

    “The overall experience at MU was delightful. The lecturers encouraged us not to learn the material by heart, but rather put the theory into practice through course assignments. This way I could sort of internalize all of the knowledge which professors have passed on to us. Modul University has also encouraged us to take on more activities like language courses but also assisted us financially.

    Overall, these have been 2 wonderful years that I have spent here.”
