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.
