Rapid Progress in Opening Wittenborg Campus in Vienna

Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences is one step closer to setting up a branch campus in Vienna, Austria, in 2017.

The memorandum on the incorporation of a private limited company in Austria was signed this week by the directors of Wittenborg. This key document sets out the rights, duties and responsibilities of shareholders, directors and others within and in relation to a company.

The signing took place at the notary office in Deventer, the original birthplace of Wittenborg and the city it operated from for 23 years before moving to Apeldoorn in 2010. It was attended by the two directors of the Vienna campus, Tim Birdsall and Dr Alexander Bauer, as well as Wittenborg’s chair of the executive board, Peter Birdsall.

Wittenborg will offer its range of BBA and MBA programmes in Vienna, following exactly the same curriculum and planning as in Apeldoorn, from where the programmes will be administrated. It will partner with one of the oldest vocational schools in Austria, EWS (Europa-Wirtschaftsschulen Wien).

Peter Birdsall said earlier: "This is a completely new market for us. Austria has a vastly different international student market from the Netherlands. We hope to open new frontiers by attracting students from countries like China, which has so far not been hugely attracted to Austria. But also from a host of other countries like Slovenia, Russia, Poland and Germany. We think there will be a big interest."
