At EWS-Vienna we emphasise the interrelationship between theory and practice with the aim to impart practical knowledge (know-how). This means EWS-Vienna focuses on student-centered learning, enabling the student to use theoretical concepts in concrete practical situations, hence the use of examples, case studies, etc. Compulsory work placements complement this practice-oriented approach to teaching and learning.

The first year of national studies is mainly devoted to the study of theoretical concepts and the development of business-oriented thinking. The second year continues with the study of more advanced theory, but also starts application of knowledge gained through case studies, independent reading assignments, class discussion of selected topics, smaller projects carried out in groups and the writing of a project paper by each student. Regular attendance and active participation of all students are vital and, therefore, also major components of evaluation.

In the course of the third year, the cross-cultural experience is the focus of our attention and students are acquainted with international subjects and topics of world-wide importance. The courses are carried out through the analysis of (mainly English written) case studies, reading materials and seminar papers written by students. One semester is devoted to study abroad at one of EWS’s educational partners – see separate listing. After an additional semester abroad, students receive an internationally recognized Bachelor Degree from one of EWS’s educational partners in the EU.
