The MA Marketing Communication is available in Austria and can also be entered into all public documents.
Pursuant to article 3 of the European Agreement on the Equivalence of Academic Degrees and University Certificates, to which Switzerland has acceded and which Austria also belongs to (Federal Law Gazette No 143/1961 as amended), an academic degree, awarded by a university under Austrian law as a degree of study, may also be awarded in Switzerland. The University of Applied Sciences Burgenland is a state university of applied sciences under Austrian law and the MA is an academic degree in the sense of the agreement.
The MA Marketing Communication is thus viable in Switzerland.
The academic degree is awarded by the University of Applied Sciences Burgenland.
The accreditation of the UAS Burgenland is confirmed by the ANABIN (database of the ZAB - Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen) under the name of Fachhochschulstudiengänge Burgenland and is rated H+.
According to article 5 of the Equivalence Agreement between the Federal Republic of Germany and the Republic of Austria (BGBl III Nr 6/2004), an academic degree awarded by a higher education institution under Austrian law, as a degree of study, may also be awarded in the Federal Republic of Germany. The University of Applied Sciences Burgenland is a state university of applied sciences under Austrian law and the MA a master's degree within the meaning of Article 2 of the Equivalence Agreement.
The MA Marketing Communication is thus viable in all federal states of Germany.
In terms of study law, this is a further education course in accordance with § 9 Fachhochschul-Studiengesetz (FHStG) as amended. Thus an academic degree is awarded according to Austrian law, which is generally internationally recognised and manageable.
Master's degrees in continuing education are academic degrees on the basis of a completed specialised education (continuing education) with a strong occupational focus, for which a completed Bachelor's degree, diploma degree or Master's degree or equivalent qualification is an admission requirement.
