PhD Program in Finance


The Vi­enna Gradu­ate School in Fin­ance (VGSF) in­vites stu­dents to ap­ply for the PhD pro­gram in Fin­ance to start in Septem­ber 2018. Our school is a joint part­ner­ship of three in­sti­tu­tions: the In­sti­tute for Ad­vanced Stud­ies (IHS), the Uni­versity of Vi­enna and the Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness (WU Vi­enna).

The Pro­gram

The PhD pro­gram is a 3-year, full-­time pro­gram struc­tured into course­work and re­search. The aim of the course­work is to train stu­dents to develop in­nov­at­ive re­search in fin­ance. The pro­gram in­cludes weekly re­search sem­inars at which renowned re­search­ers present their latest work. VGSF stu­dents are fully fun­ded. They are em­ployed by the Uni­versity of Vi­enna or by WU Vi­enna and ex­empt from tu­ition fees.
