Why in Vienna?

Each year the international consulting firm Mercer does a survey to evaluate the quality of living in 230 cities around the world. Once again in 2016, Vienna held the top spot in the study, making the Austrian capital the city with the highest overall quality of life for the seventh time in a row.

The LBS campus, actually a baroque palace situated on beautifully landscaped grounds, was once the summer residence of Austrian Empress Maria Theresia. One of the safest cities in the world, Vienna offers a rich historic and cultural backdrop eminently conducive to study and creative pursuits. With Vienna’s vibrant, hospitable Jewish community, LBS has proven itself an attractive choice to an international student body.
