VGSF new corporate design

The Vienna Graduate School of Finance (VGSF) has laun­ched its new brand to exhibit the deter­mi­na­tion of the insti­tu­tion to continue and further enhance its PhD program in Finance as an act of colla­bo­ra­tion between the three foun­ding insti­tu­tions: Vienna Univer­sity of Econo­mics and Busi­ness (WU), the Univer­sity of Vienna and the Insti­tute for Advanced Studies (IHS).

The new VGSF brand deli­vers several key messages and targets diverse audi­ences, from students to promi­nent rese­ar­chers. The new logo has a clean and powerful design that comple­ments the VGSF values of Excel­lence, Inde­pen­dence, and Encou­ra­ge­ment. Its new colors commu­ni­cate the School’s rese­arch focus, goals, and the passion students put into their work.

The fresh design and user-fri­endly website under­line once more the School deter­mi­na­tion to esta­blish itself as a place for cuttin­g-edge and inno­va­tive rese­arch. The home­page directs the audi­ences to the main working areas of the School: the PhD program and its students, the faculty of the three Vien­nese insti­tu­tions, and the semi­nars that bring top inter­na­tional rese­ar­chers to VGSF. The website is one of the projects of the School is working on to enhance its program and attract future gene­ra­tions of rese­ar­chers.

About the School

The VGSF was founded in 2005 as a joint initia­tive of the Insti­tute for Advanced Studies (IHS), the Univer­sity of Vienna, and the Vienna Univer­sity of Econo­mics and Busi­ness (WU Vienna), with the finan­cial support of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). These three insti­tu­tions joined forces to create a hub in Vienna that is large enough to produce inter­na­tio­nally reco­gnized rese­arch and provide a compe­ti­tive PhD educa­tion.

The well-­struc­tured, five-year PhD program in Finance trains students to become ambi­tious rese­ar­chers in the field of finance, suitable for place­ment at inter­na­tional academic insti­tu­tions or at rese­ar­ch-fri­endly insti­tu­tions in the finan­cial sector. VGSF faculty members conduct rese­arch and teach in areas such as corpo­rate finance, finan­cial inter­me­dia­tion, and market micro­struc­ture, and colla­bo­rate with renowned experts and acade­mics, who are often invited to VGSF as guest lecturers or to hold semi­nars. Rigo­rous super­vi­sion and struc­tured cour­se­work, toge­ther with a stimu­la­ting and inter­na­tional envi­ron­ment, define the character of the program.
