In order to create something sustainable, you need the right location – the choice to establish the first 180 Degrees Consulting branch in the German-speaking area in Vienna is therefore not surprising. The city in the heart of Europe has long served as a bridge between Eastern and Western Europe.

Vienna is home to Europe’s biggest university for economics and business – the WU. In addition to the 24,000 regular students, around 1,000 students from over 40 countries all over the world spend a semester at the WU. For years the university has supported projects that pursue social impact and inter-cultural exchange. All those factors contribute to Vienna being the ideal hub for a student initiative to support charitable projects.
