Events & Guest Lectures

Hosting academic events and notable guest lecturers on campus not only raises the visibility of Webster Vienna Private University but also enhances the learning experience of our students.

Events and guest lectures allow our students to gain insight into real-life business practices by being able to interact with business and industry leaders and enabling them to address questions directly to the experts from the field.
