Vienna, the Most Prosperous City in the World!

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.

Webster Students raise 700 euro for Kenyan Elementary School

Students at the Vienna campus held a fund-raising social event in September 2013. They succeeded in raising 700 euros – congratulations! The money will go towards supporting an elementary school in western Kenya. The money will most likely be spent on much-needed school books, desks, and chairs for the elementary students. The school is one of three supported by the Waluka project, a charity run by adjunct faculty member Giles Pope.
