WU Alumni
August 13, 2009

Vienna University of Economics and Business Alumni met with Vice Dean Prof. Sporn

“No international travelling without reaching out to our alumni”: this seems to be the motto of Prof. Barbara Sporn, Vice Dean of the prestigious Vienna University of Economics and Business (Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien, WU). Sporn was happy to meet some of WU’s graduates who currently reside in the Chicago area during her Aug. 2009 visit to Chicago. Austrian Trade Commissioner Franz Roessler stated that the successful careers of the WU alumni in the U.S. are the perfect proof of the WU’s international competence in teaching cross-cultural skills and languages.

There are undoubtedly even more WU alumni residing in the US Midwest.
