The Vienna School of International Studies is a postgraduate professional school, dedicated to preparing talented men and women for international careers and positions of leadership. Its unique teaching philosophy is built on five pillars: - the highest academic standards - multidisciplinary training - the interplay between theory and practice - full competence in languages - an optimal student-teacher ratio.

This teaching philosophy ensures that students receive a world-class education in international affairs, an endeavour begun by the Empress Maria Theresa when she founded the Academy in 1754.


In 1754 the Empress Maria Theresa founded the Oriental Academy to train young men for the diplomatic service of the Habsburg monarchy. Out of the Oriental Academy evolved first the Consular Academy and in 1964 theDiplomatische Akademie Wien, which in 1996 asDiplomatische Akademie Wien-Vienna School of International Studies was granted the status of an independent public training institution. The Academy is thus one of the oldest of its kind worldwide.


The Vienna School ot International Studiesis a member of various networks whose activities and initiatives bring together people working in the field of International Relations. In addition, cooperation agreements make it possible forour students to complete part of their studies at a partner university.

International Forum on Diplomatic Training (IFDT) The International Forum on Diplomatic Training assembles Deans and Directors of some 100 Diplomatic Academies and Institutes of International Relations worldwide. It was established in 1972 by a joint initiative of the Diplomatische Akademie Wien and the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University, Washington, DC.

The Forum meets annually to share information about recent trends in diplomacy and experiences gained in training for diplomatic and international careers.

Cooperative Degree Programmes The Cooperative Degree Programmes of theVienna School of International Studiesare open to students of the „Master of Advanced International Studies". MAIS students have the opportunity to complete their second academic year at a partner university.
