MODUL University Vienna is raising the bar for Austrian educational exports


MODUL University is the first private university in Austria to open campuses outside Europe – in China and the United Arab Emirates.

MODUL University Vienna has unveiled two new international study locations in October 2016: the MODUL School of Tourism and Hospitality Management, opened in cooperation with Nanjing Tech University in Nanjing (China), and the new MODUL University campus in Dubai (UAE).

The Dubai campus runs bachelor’s, master’s and MBA programmes in conjunction with lecture courses offered by the MODUL schools of tourism, while the MODUL School of Tourism and Hospitality is cooperating with Nanjing Tech University to offer a bachelor’s degree in Tourism & Hospitality Management. The entire curriculum and lecture courses have been licensed to standards officially recognised by the appropriate national bodies. The formal process for accreditation by the relevant Austrian authority (AQ Austria – the Agency for Quality Assurance and Accreditation Austria) is currently in progress.

In both China and Dubai, MODUL University Vienna is making sure that its curricula and teaching approach are carried over consistently. It also guarantees that quality will be assured and developed at the new locations.

MODUL University Vienna’s international expansion represents a significant contribution to educational export, and paves the way for closer international economic relationships.
