We require learners to possess a certain level of English proficiency in order to understand the study material and work in groups seamlessly. While we do not require official English certification, we assess your English level during the interview stage.
The application process requires the following steps:
1. Complete a few questions or speak with our Admissions Team
2. Submit an application to Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences
3. Upload your information to WU Executive Academy
4. Attend an application interview with Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences & the WU Executive Academy
5. Sign the admissions contract with WU Executive Academy
Your official title will be Master of Science (CE)WU in Sustainability, Entrepreneurship, and Technology.
During the 30-minute application interview, the Dean of the WU Executive Academy and ToU Admissions Team will evaluate your program-related motivations and verify your English language proficiency in an online setting.
An eligibility check is a simple web form in which you submit your contact information, along with details about your work and educational experience. Our Admissions Team will review this information and get back to you. Alternatively, you can always schedule a meeting with someone from our team to discuss your eligibility.
After you have signed the contract and paid the deposit to WU Executive Academy, you will be officially enrolled as a student at an Austrian university. Depending on your specific situation, it may be possible for you to apply for a student visa to Austria (but not Germany).
Please note that this is a mobile-first degree program. While Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences is happy to support you coming to the EU as a student, we can make no guarantees about visa requests. Completing our Master of Science (CE) in SET will have important fiscal and professional implications for your career. Hence, we recommend that you apply to the program because of the educational experience it can provide, and not simply because of the visa options it affords.
The Admissions Team will work with you to determine the best next steps, on a case-by-case basis. For example, if you simply lack the professional work or education experience required for acceptance, we can work with you to help you apply for a future cohort or a different program.
The Executive Academy of the Vienna University of Business and Economics is our partner that awards the degree and ensures a high-quality education experience. Due to GDPR requirements, you’ll need to upload your information to the WU Executive Academy on their website after your application has been submitted and reviewed. Your admissions contact will provide you with additional details for completing this part of the process.
After a successful application interview, you will receive notification of your acceptance into the program and be provided with a legally binding tuition contract between you and WU Executive Academy. Once you have signed this contract and paid the minimum tuition deposit, you have committed to the program.
You will need to pay 10% of your total tuition as a confirmation fee to reserve your study placement. Then, the remaining balance can be paid in 1-5 installments over the course of the program, depending on the installment type of your choice.
Yes! We are happy to work with your employer to help finance this degree, in part or in full. Please reach out to our team so that we can arrange to speak with your manager.
There are different ways of financing your studies.
Most learners use a mix of financing options ranging from student jobs and saving, to scholarships or governmental support.
If you need further assistance please contact our Admissions Team. Payments can be made via bank transfer to the IBAN listed on your invoice. For folks outside of the EU, we recommend looking at transfer services (for example, Wise.com) to make your tuition payments.
Please find more information about scholarship opportunities here.
Yes! Learners can save a significant amount of money by deducting their study fees as “income-related expenses”. A learner earning €50k from their job can save more than €5.000 in taxes! Please contact our sales team to evaluate your current situation.
Yes we do. Please talk to our Admissions Team about our Super-Early and Early-Bird tuition credit which are available to all learners. We also offer the opportunity to refer a friend or signup with somebody from your network, in this case you'll each earn a €1.000 tuition reduction.
No, each applicant is eligible to apply for one scholarship. However, each applicant is also entitled to apply for an early application tuition reduction or receive an additional reduction by applying with a friend.

Our schedules are flexible. Therefore, you can learn depending on your schedule and preferences. There are no events or course discussions on Saturday or Sunday.
Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences consists of a large network of industry experts and partners. We will work to help you either start your own venture or find a career opportunity.
There are no exams in a traditional sense. We will not have written exams or anything alike. Most of the assessment will be done by how well you master certain concepts, and skills or simply how well you put things into practice. In the end, no one can give better feedback than the market.
Every course with a group challenge, i.e. where it is solely about applying your knowledge and creating solutions, will not be based on grades, but only a “pass” and a “not yet passed” (all courses in the elevation phase). Courses in the orientation and in the calibration phase will be graded on a scale from 1 to 5. But we don’t want you to understand this as a judgment, but rather as a possibility and direction to improve. In general, we value feedback way higher than grades. We value room for improvement over putting learners into fixed categories and comparing them to one another.
There is a 25 person limit per intake.
Unlike traditional Master's Degree programs, we built our curriculum around six research-based pillars. Our challenge-based approach and belief in flexibility allow your learning journey to be individualized and change with you. You'll leave the program with a lifelong community and the resources to make a long-lasting impact.
We believe in:
Learners take 15 - 24 months to complete the program.
Yes! While we are a fully-remote university, we believe building a strong network of personal and professional relationships is key to any learning experience.
-Our metaverse campus in Cosmos
-Technical app support
Learn more about our community here.
At Tomorrow University of Applied Sciences, our community is rich in diversity and experience. Our learners come from a range of backgrounds, cultures, and countries, bringing with them unique perspectives that enrich our academic programs. Many of our learners have years of experience in their respective fields, allowing for a dynamic exchange of knowledge and expertise in the classroom. Our community is committed to fostering an inclusive environment where everyone is encouraged to share their ideas and contribute to our collective learning journey. With a focus on practical, hands-on learning, our learners graduate with the skills and knowledge needed to make a positive impact in their respective fields, regardless of their background or prior experience.
You'll work through the 4 phases of the program:
We judge your success based on the mastery of competencies rather than grades. As you work through the challenges we closely monitor your progress and determine successful completion of a challenge or phase.
The program is specifically designed for professionals to study next to their job. It's mobile and part-time. Nevertheless, it will still require a great amount of dedication and curiosity. We want the program to be a truly transformative experience for you and, just like with anything in life, it's also true here: The more you give in — the more you get out. Taking 90 ECTS you might need 20-30 hours per week. In reality, many people manage to have a great experience by investing only half of that time.
Subject Matter Experts are responsible for the creation of challenges. They are designed to simulate real-world business scenarios.
ToU was founded by Christian Rebernik and Dr. Thomas Funke who both have extensive backgrounds and expertise in the fields of sustainability, entrepreneurship, and technology.
The mentors, ambassadors, and academic staff are a group of carefully selected industry professionals with proven track records in the areas of sustainability, entrepreneurship, and technology. We believe in learning by doing, or challenge-based learning. These experts bring their real-world knowledge and expertise to the program and offer their insights as change makers themselves.
The challenges are core to our learning model. It's a substantial part of every course making up at least half of the overall workload. They are either individual or team challenges. You will be given real-world cases and scenarios to apply and strengthen your newly learned competencies right away. These could range from an individual Python coding challenge that takes up a couple of hours in a course on Data Science to a couple of days of preparing, running, and synthesizing user interviews in a course on User Research to several weeks of intense group work to create new business models and products reacting to global challenges such as climate change. During the challenges you will be accompanied by both an academic mentor as well as a business mentor that has practical experience in the area of the challenge.
