The mdw’s newly established Career Center supports students and young graduates as they make the transition into professional life.

The Career Center’s courses and workshops are tailored to the special requirements of the various types of careers in the arts and are adapted on a continual basis to keep up with a constantly changing cultural scene. The Center’s offerings are open to students and graduates up to five years after graduation, and participation is free of charge. The Career Center develops and hosts courses in cooperation with the Centre for Further Education, the mdw club, and Wissenstransferzentrum Ost [Knowledge Transfer Centre East].

Our online toolbox presents valuable information for young artists in a “How to ...” format, conceived as an overview of important information and skills that are essential for a successful career.

The Career Center also offers performance opportunities for advanced students and young graduates above and beyond those that are part of their coursework, and the young performers are coached and advised depending on their specific needs.

Finally, the online platform “mdw Artists” presents outstanding young mdw artists who can be booked through the Career Center. They include award-winners as well as future stars promoted by the talent portal Ö1 Talentebörse.


Performances and Concerts




Training in moderation for Artists 


Artists often perceive moderating their own concert performances in front of the audience to be an enormous additional burden. At the same time, however, doing so presents intriguing opportunities to break down the barrier between the stage and the audience.
