Business Administration (Master)

Bild ist Dekoration/Decorative picture

The master's programme in Business Administration at the University of Vienna aims at familiarising students with the methods and instruments of economic disciplines, but also with topics related to business administration (business law, economic sociology, business informatics, economics, statistics, etc.). This enables them to solve management problems independently. The structure of the master's programme allows students to expand their knowledge of two disciplines of business administration, and thus receive training to become highly qualified specialists. Alternatively, students can also choose to specialise in just one field of business administration, and additionally select specialisations from related disciplines, such as economic law, economic sociology, business informatics, economics and statistics, and operations research. This way, students acquire additional competences that exceed the field of business administration.
