The Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz boasts future-oriented academic degree programs, excellence in teaching and research, numerous partnerships in Austria and abroad, and a unique campus with park-like grounds. Although a young university (established 1966), in a short period of time the JKU has become a cutting-edge institution for science, academics, business and the community. The Faculty of Social Sciences, Economics and Business (SOWI) has created its degree programs according to national and international quality standards, thus contributing greatly in an effort to address and solve complex social and business issues. The Faculty of Law (RE) focuses on excellence in public, private and international business law. Transnational cooperation efforts deal with legal issues at an international level. The JKU is the only university in Austria that offers a multimedia Diploma degree program in Law. The Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences (TN) works closely with both local and international businesses and industry. Various cooperation efforts yield numerous synergy effects that benefit both educators and students. The Faculty of Medicine (MED) is the most recent addition to the JKU Linz. Opened in 2014, the faculty offers an academic degree in Human Medicine.
