GMAT preparation for WU students

Without a valid GMAT result it is nearly impossible to apply for international master programs. Even for WU’s English-taught master programs, the submission of a valid GMAT test result is highly recommended (for all non-EU applicants it is obligatory). In Vienna the GMAT can be taken at the official test center, the Centre International Universitaire (CIU) and costs $ 300 per test. The results are valid for applications all over the world.

WU is offering its students a GMAT preparation course again this year. A professional trainer from the testing center provides students with the most important information about preparing for the test. Students can take two test simulations, once at the beginning of the preparation phase, and the second time immediately before taking the test.

The preparation course is offered for 15 WU students. Applications are submitted by email to the following address: Students in the bachelor program in Business, Economics and Social Sciences who have passed at least 120 ECTS credits worth of courses at the time of application are invited to apply to participate in the course. After expiration of the application period, the students are ranked according to their GPA, and the best 15 students are accepted into the course.

Please don’t forget to provide your name and student ID number. After expiration of the application period you will be informed by email about acceptance to the course.

Please note the following dates for the GMAT preparation:

  • First test simulation: Thursday, June 10th, 1.00 pm – 5.00 pm
  • Preparation course: Friday, June 18th, 9.00 am – 6.00 pm
  • Second test simulation: Thursday, September 16th, 1.00 pm – 5.00 pm

WU pays for your GMAT!

WU will pay the GMAT test fees for any of the 15 participants who apply for and are accepted to one of WU’s English-taught master programs. GMAT test fees will be refunded upon admission to the master program.
