The IMWF Austria (Institute for Management and Economic Research) in cooperation with the media partner Kurier has determined the most popular employers in 2023 for a study.

St. Pölten UAS is among the top five universities of applied sciences in the field of education.

A broad collection of data from thousands of public online sources served as the data basis: Social media, blogs, forums, news media, platforms, specialist media, and much more.

Around 270,000 statements relevant to the study on Austria's 2,800 largest companies were collected and analyzed in the period from November 2021 to October 2022. An AI-based text analysis was used to evaluate the relevance to employers and the tone of the comments.

Five categories were analyzed:

  • Employers in general
  • Career
  • Salary
  • Corporate culture and
  • Family friendliness.

"For years, St. Pölten UAS has been taking many steps to keep the quality of work in the company high and to continuously improve it - from workplace health promotion to flexible working hours and social activities, to name just a few. I am pleased that our UAS now also shows a particularly high reputation in this survey and that we are one of the best employers in the education sector," says UAS Managing Director Johann Haag.
