The new campus WU
In September 2013, the WU and the WU Executive Academy moved to the new “Campus WU” near the city center and adjacent to one of Vienna’s largest parks. The WU Executive Academy building was designed by the Spanish architects NO.MAD Arquitectos. It resides in a square-sided tower comprising seven floors, featuring a front made of glass and aluminum. Both sky and nature are mirrored in the building, which blends perfectly into its surroundings. The new campus offers world-class facilities and state-of-the art resources to the students, enabling the WU Executive Academy to provide first class executive education.
