WUTIS was founded in May 2016 with the aim to increase Vienna’s attractiveness for recruitment in the financial service industry and close the widening gap between finance academic theory and practice by providing a full-blown educational opportunity for any finance-driven student.
Our society first started off with the Equity Research Division before we elaborated our inherent investment approach and established the other divisions accordingly. Since then, we constantly refined our approach, entered new partnerships not only with student societies in and beyond Austria, but also with leading international firms.
After 1.5 years of existence, we have launched 4 recruitment phases, held over 30 events, have a over 50% internship placement rate, and entered several partnerships. Thus, we can say that we are already one step closer to achieve our goal in making Vienna the most attractive place for recruitment in finance.
We support the opinion that finance is an easy-to-learn field given that students are smart and have a strong affinity with numbers. Therefore, at WUTIS we are proud to maintain a very diverse culture where our members have a wide variety of different backgrounds. We cover most of Vienna’s universities.
