The Vienna Institute is committed to academic excellence. We will continue to work to develop Management International University and create strategic university partnerships to act as a European destination for like-minded partners.  

The Vienna Institute’s educational goals are centred around the 3 following themes: 

Empowering people and communities.  

Delivering transformative education, research, and innovation  

Achieving organizational excellence 

Students on the ICO Vienna Institute's Campus will come via different programmes:

  • Management International University will attract students from all over the world, interested in higher education certificate and diplomas in Business, Entrepreneurship, Human Rights and Sustainable Peace.

  • ICO research centre will offer several fellowship opportunities for independent or affiliated researchers.

  • Lastly, our partnered universities will offer a range of courses, related to the work of ICO, to their students. 


To ensure the success of our diverse student body, we will have a dedicated team to coordinate the academic calendar, share on-site opportunities and foster a vibrant student body.  


Management International University seeks to engage, inspire and prepare students to make a difference in the world. By equipping each and every one of our student with the critical, innovative, collaborative and ethical ethos of the university, we hope to develop the leaders of tomorrow. From creating new routes to financial inclusion, finding new sustainable uses for scarce resources or becoming part of tomorrow’s effective leadership; Management International University seeks to not only create successful graduates, but citizens of the world who are driven and determined to solve humanity’s most intricate problems.

In 50 years from now, we want to reach over 20,000 students, based on the current number of international and national students enrolled at Vienna University and the UK Universities.
