... The Campus. 
Europe‚Äôs largest university of economics and business with just under 23.000 students originating from 110 countries moved to a brand-new campus in October 2013. Making its home right beside the famous Prater park, the campus catches attention due to its unique modern architecture providing an ideal environment for students, teachers and research purposes.. 

... The City of Vienna. 
Not only rich in history and culture, Vienna has also been voted the city with the highest quality of living according to the Mercer survey for several consecutive times in a row. The capital is home to magnificent historical buildings, traditional coffee houses and offers beautiful landscapes and recreational opportunities in the immediate surroundings. Numerous international organisations are based in Vienna, such as the United Nations. 

... The Country, Austria. 
Lying in the heart of Europe, the small alpine nation is a gateway between East and West in Europe and a central hub for travel and commerce. Balancing perfectly between the urban and the outdoors, Austria provides opportunities for every taste, from cresting high mountains to strolling down the streets of imperial Vienna.
