Internationalization at FHWien der WKW

Growing globalization of the higher education market demands that higher education institutions have an increasingly strong international focus. Thus, degree programs tailored to the domestic market are no longer sufficient. Instead, employers expect students and graduates to have international experience, intercultural competences and advanced foreign language proficiency.

Internationalization is extremely important to us. By offering a wide range of international activities, we want to align teaching, research and corporate culture so as to match and exceed the requirements of the global labor market.

Together with International Affairs, the Center for International Education & Mobility (CIEM) provides the structure necessary for implementation of FHWien der WKW’s internationalization strategy.

CIEM has moved and can be found in room A109 (above the library).

Our Internationalization Pathway at FHWien der WKW

Together with Lauder Business School, FHWien der WKW won funding from the City of Vienna, to help internationalize their teaching. The project is entitled "Internationalization@home relaunched teaching and learning in a professional, contemporary and cosmopolitan context" and focuses both on a greater integration between local and international students and teaching staff, and offers targeted training courses for teaching staff. The project concentrates on three areas:

  1. Further increasing the quality and scope of elective courses in International Management, to make them more attractive for both local and international students
  2. Organizing workshops and events for international lecturers and local teaching staff from FHWien der WKW and Lauder Business School (LBS) to meet with one another.
  3. Targeted training measures promoting internationalization, the first of which is the “English Language Café”, a low-threshold drop-in class for staff to practice speaking in English.

The overall objective of the project is to internationalize teaching at FHWien der WKW and LBS in a professional manner based on contemporary teaching methods.
