Moving with the Times: Webster Vienna Private University

The OPEC Bulletin visited Webster Vienna Private University (WVPU) in the heart of Vienna to uncover the changes the oldest private university in the city has undergone and its historical link to OPEC. Dr Samuel R Schubert’s office looks like a typical professor’s room. Papers and books cover every surface. A coffee machine is placed prominently on the coffee table. Home to great thoughts and ideas. Schubert, the Associate Director of Webster Vienna Private University (WVPU) fits right in. A man who has accomplished a lot during his tenure at the university, he is friendly with a ready smile and natty clothes befitting his position.

Kickstart Your Career with a Dual Degree at Webster Vienna Private University

An education is one of life’s most valuable assets, and as the biggest university city in the Germansphere, Vienna has plenty to offer. But graduates often find themselves with a degree and no real job prospects. Companies can capitalize on practical experience and skills that most traditional degree programs – with their overcrowded auditoriums – simply cannot provide. It pays off to seek out a school that focusses on expanding its students’ horizons beyond the pages of their textbooks. With a student to teacher ratio of 20:1 at most, Webster Vienna Private University does just that.
