On November 12th, 2013, the Vienna Media Communications department presented selected work from media-production courses at Top Kino in Vienna. It was a very successful screening at a sold out movie theatre. “The focus for us is to show examples of student work,” says Holger Lang, organizer of the event and professor at Webster. And, he added, the screening is also a reward for the students.
Vienna has, once again, found itself at the top of another worldwide city-ranking.
This time, the city gained the title of most prosperous city in the world according to "State of the World's Cities 2012/2013", a 152-page study performed by United Nations Human Settlements Programme HABITAT experts.
Decisions were based on two sections: The first section took into consideration productivity, quality of life, infrastructure, and environmental sustainability. The second additionally evaluated equity and social inclusion.
Come and see for yourself what a class at Webster is like! The new schedule for our trial classes (November - December 2013) is now available. Welcome to register online at: http://www.webster.ac.at/admissions/sign-free-trial-class

Once again, Webster University Vienna proves its outstanding educational standards. Our students delivered above-average results when taking the Bloomberg Aptitude Test (BAT) this spring. Compared to the international results, Webster students stand out significantly and for many sections are way above average. Especially in the areas of “News Analysis”, “Economics” and “Global Markets” our students showed great competency and some even managed to enter the 97th percentile with their results.
Last December Webster Vienna held its annual Holiday Punch event in combination with the Webster Works Worldwide #18 in the form of a fundraiser for the Ibubi Primary School in Kenya. Donations were collected to support the needy which in this case were students of the Ibubi Primary School in Kenya. The donation went towards purchasing textbooks and school supplies for these students.
The pictures of happy students of Ibubi proudly showing their books were sent to us by the Head Teacher Joshua Maboko Echoka through Dr. Giles Pope, Adjunct Professor of Webster University, Vienna.
