Fin­ance Re­search Sem­inar

Re­search­ers at the In­sti­tute of Fin­ance, Bank­ing and In­sur­ance are part of the Vi­enna Gradu­ate School of Fin­ance (VGSF), a doc­toral school jointly es­tab­lished by WU, Uni­versity of Vi­enna and IHS in 2005, and fun­ded by the Aus­trian Science Fund (FWF). The VGSF of­fers an in­ter­na­tion­ally com­pet­it­ive PhD pro­gram in Fin­ance.

The VGSF or­gan­izes the weekly VGSF Fin­ance Re­search Sem­inar where in­ter­na­tional re­search­ers present and dis­cuss with local re­search­ers and PhD stu­dents their state-of-the-art re­search.

Brown Bag Sem­inar

Schol­ars at WU, the PhD stu­dents of VGSF as well as in­ter­na­tional guests present their work­ing pa­pers for dis­cus­sion in the Brown Bag Sem­inar. The sem­inar is or­gan­ized by our In­sti­tute to­gether with the In­sti­tute for Fin­an­cial Re­search, the Vi­enna In­sti­tute of Fin­ance and the Vi­enna Gradu­ate School of Fin­ance.
