Study abroad

Erasmus cooperation between the Wine Campus Neustadt and the IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems, Austria

Professional and intercultural development through international networking

From the winter semester 2023/2024, two students per year from the dual study program "Viticulture & Enology" at Wine Campus Neustadt will be able to spend a semester abroad at Krems University of Applied Sciences on the "International Wine Business" course. In return, two students from Krems University of Applied Sciences can spend a semester at the Wine Campus Neustadt. This cooperation gives students at the Wine Campus another opportunity to learn at an international level - in addition to the practical projects and excursions already firmly anchored in the course of study.

The Erasmus program not only eliminates tuition fees abroad, but also provides students with additional financial support for living costs abroad. In addition to the students, the Erasmus program also supports the lecturers. This means that interesting lectures and seminars can be organized between the universities in the future, which will benefit both partners both professionally and interculturally. Prof. Dr. Laura Ehm, Professor of Marketing at the Wine Campus Neustadt, and Prof. Dr. Albert Franz Stöckl, Head of the International Wine Business course at IMC FH Krems, are responsible for the cooperation. Both emphasize the potential of the cooperation. 

IMC FH Krems already has a strong international network, which, according to Prof. Stöckl, is one of the hallmarks of the International Wine Business course. The cooperation with the Wine Campus Neustadt will now expand this network and exciting impulses can be exchanged. Krems is an attractive location for studying and making wine due to its proximity to the neighboring Wachau wine-growing region. The region is an official UNESCO World Heritage Site, not least because of its excellent wines and wineries. Germany and Austria are located in the heart of Europe. Both countries therefore face similar climatic challenges, which means that valuable know-how can be exchanged, especially on the subject of sustainability.

Interested parties are welcome to contact Prof. Dr. Laura Ehm directly.
