Digital Tax & Accounting is a branch of study within the bachelor's program in economics, which combines basic knowledge of business administration with practical know-how. It is positioned at the interface between the areas of Tax & Accounting and Digitalization. The focus is on the following modularly structured subject areas:

  •  IT & Organization - Data Management
  •  Digitalization of processes
  •  IT Law & Security
  •  Business Information Systems
  •  Data analytics
  •  Value Added Tax & Federal Fiscal Code
  •  Income tax law & cash accounting
  •  Personnel Accounting
  •  Corporate law and accounting
  •  General Management

Close contacts to the business world give students deep insights into professional practice. Compulsory internships take place under the supervision of the lecturers to ensure the best possible success of the students in their working life.

What students should bring to their studies:

  • Interest in economic and digital topics.
  • The ability to work in teams
  • Language and communication skills.
  • Responsible behaviour.
  • analytical and systemic thinking
  • Interest in innovative technologies.

After successful completion of their studies, graduates have the following skills and knowledge:

Graduates in this field of study will deal with tax returns and annual financial statements in addition to payroll and financial accounting. Graduates of the bachelor's program in "Management" with a focus on "Digital Tax & Accounting" are also expected to be able to

  • effectively apply the possibilities of digitalizing processes and procedures in accounting,
  • develop, implement and use concepts for the use of digital transactions with clients and tax authorities
  • to support demanding clients of tax consulting and auditing firms and to prepare complex consultations with regard to content.

Job & Career

Due to the interdisciplinary education in the bachelor's degree program in economics, graduates* in the individual branches of study are offered very good career opportunities in the respective industries. In addition to their professional know-how, graduates have extensive key qualifications and skills. In particular, knowledge in the following areas comes into play:

  • IT & Organization - Data Management
  • Digitalization of processes
  • IT Law & Security
  • Business Information Systems
  • Data analytics
  • Value Added Tax & Federal Fiscal Code
  • Income tax law & cash accounting
  • Personnel Accounting
  • Corporate law and accounting
  • General Management

In order to prepare students for their entry into professional life, the work placement is a particularly important part of the curriculum. Practical units enable the direct implementation and deepening of already acquired knowledge in practice, so that the knowledge can be further developed "on the job". In addition, important initial contacts are made with potential employers. It is not unusual for a concrete job offer to result from the internship.

The successful completion of the bachelor's degree entitles the student to a master's degree in Business & Management at a university of applied sciences or university.




Practice-oriented business education & profile-building specializations


The Bachelor study program in Management offers a compact, practice-oriented basic education in economics. In addition, there is a strong focus on teaching key and future skills tailored to the respective branches of study (6 German-language and 2 English-language) from the first semester onwards. This profile-building specialization accounts for more than half of the total course content. Current topics such as sustainability, digitality, internationality and diversity are an integral part of many modules.


The high practical relevance of the study program is ensured by close cooperation with regional, national and international companies as well as the use of experienced lecturers from industry, business and institutions, who bring current topics and new developments from professional practice into the study program or can also be experienced in excursions. The students' transfer skills are strengthened by working on specific and current practical tasks.

Degree program management full-time: modern study time model

In the full-time study program, the modules are divided into two semesters with an intermediate or final examination week. This enables focused learning and makes it easier for students to plan the time required to complete their examinations.

Campus & Arrival


The Villach region combines tradition, cosmopolitanism and quality of life with the advantages of an innovative business location. Villach, a small town with about 60,000 inhabitants, is an international high-tech location with groundbreaking cooperation between science and industry and is also increasingly developing into a start-up town.

Situated directly at the intersection of three cultures, Villach, situated on the Drava river, is an important traffic junction in the Alps-Adriatic region. This special geographical location and the beautiful landscape around Villach and in the federal state of Carinthia have made the region a popular holiday destination for generations, further beyond the borders. The drinking water quality of the lakes and the particularly clean air make Villach and its surroundings an environmental paradise.

In addition to its geographical advantages, Austria also leads the world in terms of its social and health care system and is considered a particularly safe, prosperous and liveable country.

Despite the above-average prosperity and the comprehensive state social benefits, Villach compares favourably with many international destinations. The "small town bonus" comes into its own here and makes everyday life affordable.
