NEWSLETTER January 2015

Dear readers,

In the spring of 2000, 14 managers made MBA history: They were the first students ever to start an Executive MBA program offered by the WU Vienna. Only 15 years later, the Global Executive MBA of the WU Executive Academy is not only the best MBA program in Austria, but also among the top 100 MBAs worldwide.

To mark the Global Executive MBA's special anniversary, we take a closer look at the success story that makes up this double-degree program.

Also, starting with this edition of our newsletter, we would like to introduce you to our new series called "Fact of the month," featuring interesting background information on the WU Executive Academy in a funny way.

We wish you all the best and good luck for the New Year – and of course happy reading!

Your WU Executive Academy Team

Alumni Application Tips: Develop a clear career vision!
During an MBA admission interview, the likelihood of being asked the good old “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" question is quite high. Irrespective of whether or not you already have a clear career vision, you should, in any case, have a good answer ready at hand. Applicants who are specific, realistic and honest will be able to set themselves apart from others.

Klemens Kaar and his class of the Professional MBA Entrepreneurship & Innovation were facing a challenging situation that surprisingly turned out to be an advantage for them when solving problems under the umbrella of innovation.

Faculty Insights: Successful networking means bringing together socially unrelated spheres
“When it comes to moving forward in your career, building up and maintaining a solid professional network is essential for sustainable success. Although there is a common assumption that having connections is more important for your career than the quality of your work, a recent study claims the opposite,” says Prof. Johannes Steyrer, Academic Director of the Professional MBA Health Care Management and Head of the Research Institute for Health Care Management and Economics, in this month’s faculty insight.
