We give companies the opportunity to advertise themselves as potential employers directly within the university environment. Use the international WU Alumni Community for exclusive access to highly qualified graduates and to give your company a unique profile as a future employer.

Cooperation possibilities

Company Presence – Bag for WU Graduates

The WU graduate bag gives you the opportunity for employer branding and company presentation. Career and/or company folders in WU graduate bags can be used for target-oriented recruiting, image cultivation as well as to raise your company’s visibility. Save time and money by reaching out to this target group of WU graduates. The WU graduate bag is handed out every year by the Examinations Office to around 2,800 WU newly graduated students. We offer a variety of presentation options from an A5 folder to a multi-page A4 folder. Special formats are also available upon request.  

Advertise in the new WU Alumni Magazine

The biannual WU Alumni Magazine gives graduates news from their alma mater about research, teaching and other university activities. With a print-run of 40,000 copies, the target readership are graduates from the WU as well as from the former University for World Trade and the Executive Academy. The magazine is posted to WU alumni worldwide and also handed out at diverse events of the WU Alumni Community and the WU. Our partners can purchase advertising space in the magazine, ranging from a half-page to a full-page advert.  

Event Sponsorship (WU Ball, Alumni Lounge at the WU Summer Festival)

Big events such as the WU Summer Festival and WU Ball are an excellent opportunity to raise the name recognition of your company and conduct an image campaign. The traditional WU Ball takes place in Vienna’s Hofburg Palace every year in January. Together with the WU Executive Academy, WU graduates, guests of honour and partners are invited to the exclusive WU Alumni Lounge. At the annual WU Summer Festival held in June, 600 guests soak up a unique atmosphere at the exclusive WU Alumni Lounge held in the roof garden of the cafeteria. A wide range of cooperation options are available for both the WU Ball and the WU Summer Festival, whether in the form of on-site presence with an individual stand, the sponsorship of equipment or a competition or by offering samples.

Of course, together we can develop a tailor-made concept that meets your expectations!

To give some orientation, below you can find the sponsorship folder for 2020 (currently only available in German).

Auditorium and Room Sponsoring on Campus WU

The Campus WU, built by internationally renowned architects, is one of the largest in the EU and a unique architectural landmark in Vienna, with around 100,000 square meters of floor space. This is not the only reason why sponsoring is gaining in importance - for you as a company and for WU as an educational institution, because education and knowledge are the most precious assets of our present and future society.

Universities have a responsibility to educate the next generation of scientists, to inspire young people with enthusiasm for a wide range of topics and to encourage them to perform at their best. In addition to the state-guaranteed educational mission, universities also use private funding to sharpen their profile. With the auditorium and room sponsoring at the WU campus, companies have the opportunity to act as WU partners, take image-building measures in the university environment and be permanently visible to all students and the public.
