The BCA Vienna program’s strength lies in its academic curriculum, which is a healthy mix of courses taught by BCA teaching staff and our partner university in Vienna, the FH Wien. Our students have an attractive and sizeable academic curriculum from which they can choose their courses, both in English and in German. These courses fall under the fields of creative expression, history, communications, German, journalism, media management, international business, marketing, finance, human resource management, marketing and sales.

The program starts with our orientation sessions during your first few days in Vienna, which serve to help get you physically oriented and comfortable in your new surroundings. Within a couple days of arrival, BCA Vienna students begin participating in our signature course, HIS 205: Crossroads of Europe, which helps our students to get Vienna in its historical and contemporary contexts, combining classroom lectures with on-site visits, lectures, and excursions to Prague and Bratislava, two neighboring capital cities that have been tightly linked to Vienna throughout history.

So if you’re looking for something a little different with a rigorous and supportive academic experience in a splendid European city, whether your German is already solid or you’ve never set foot in a German class, we have an exciting opportunity lined up for you.

Thank you for your interest in BCA Vienna, and I look forward to your participation in the program.
